I absolutely understand cancellation policies, really I do! It's unfair for a company to lose money due to a last minute change from a customer. BUT, I booked a tour EIGHT MONTHS in advance and promptly paid my deposit. Then, after only TWO DAYS, I found out my trip's plans were unavoidably changed. So, I requested a refund of my... More

We had always wanted to see Portmeirion and I had heard North Wales was beautiful. We were absolutely blown away by the bespoke tour Alwyn worked out for us! We had one full day where I requested castles, scenery, and charming villages with a good place to eat. He also picked us up at the train the day before where... More

Alwyn Griffith met our plane in Manchester and we headed to Wales for a trip to see castles, ruins, churches, small villages, and lovely scenery. We were a group of photographers eager to photograph the old Welsh castles and burial sites. Our weather was very good. Our entire trip was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed Alwyn and hearing his many... More

Carl was knowledgeable and personable, and really paid attention to what sites we wanted to see and made a plan that would fit the time allowed. Snowdonia is such a beautiful and scenic place,...

My husband and I toured with Alwyn for two full days. We didn't want to drive, or to depend on public transportation. Alwyn's tour was wonderful! He listened very closely to our interests. He showed us many fascinating places, some of which we had read about beforehand, but some of which we would never have come across on our own.... More

My husband and I have traveled extensively and rank this trip at the very top. The scenery (like the weather) is variable and always lovely. Alwyn took us to places based on the weather for the current day so to be inside visiting a grand or not so pretentious home or sunny/dry when exploring castles. Caernarfon Castle is outstanding!
