What a stunning location with over 900 years of history, in the centre of a market town.A must see attraction if you are . I say that because the photograph is of Caerphilly castle some 5 miles north of the museum in Cardiff.

I usually have a really hard time being focused and listening to everything a guide is saying, but she was just amazing! Loved every... More

They were very warm and affectionate, and I being a solo traveller did not feel left out. It was a small tour group, and I made some good friends along the jouney as well. It... More

Jan and John were amazing tour guides with an even better sightseeing plan. If you're going to Cardiff and want to see more of Wales I would highly recommend where when Wales! Jan remembered everyone's name and was interested in learning more about everyone. All in all 5 out of 5 stars !

Jan & John were excellent tour guides! Would have liked a bit longer in Crickhowell to enjoy the town while having time to eat. Overall, highly recommend their day tours.

After a couple of cancellations by another company was able to book the Border Explorer Tour with Where When Wales and so glad we did. Jan and John were brilliant tour guide and driver and the tour of the Big Pit was excellent. Highly recommend this tour to those who want to get out of Cardiff for the day m

The South Wales Valleys tour was the perfect solution to this issue. Guide Jan and driver John took us to see some amazing sites - from Caerphilly Castle and Castell Coch to some truly awe-inspiring scenic... More
