After reading some favourable reviews of BusyBus (U.K.) tours we booked the North Wales Tour starting at the Liverpool cruise port, and returning there approximately 8 hours later. Three BusyBus chartered full-size coaches arrived in port and all were soon filled to near capacity, despite BusyBus claims that they never fill to capacity, leaving lots of extra room. A number of people who did not pre-book boarded the buses, accounting for the extra passengers. Two of the buses were used for the North Wales Tour and one for the lakes district. Fortunately the near capacity loads were not problematic on our bus as passengers kept to the timelines at each stop. Both our driver and tour guide (Allan) were very experienced and well organized. Allan’s commentaries en route were informative, often humerous and interesting. Playing ‘Ferry Cross the Mersey’ (Gerry & the Pacemakers) was perfectly timed as we drove through the tunnel under the Mersey River. Other stops included two World Heritage sites: Conwy Castle & Pontcysylie Aqueduct. Both were excellent. Ogden Valley, south of Bangor was a wonderful stop for landscape photos and some exploring. Betws-y-Coed is a lovely picturesque town with numerous quaint shops, very popular with tourists. Overall, BusyBus is a great choice for touring North Wales safely without stress. As a tour guide, Allan was first rate.
