Our family began our search for a private tour of Wales almost a year before we arrived. It is imperative to start early as the best ones book quickly. We were so glad we chose John of Boutique tours. John quickly responded to our emails and questions we had and made the booking process easy. He arranged to pick up at the pier for our group,as we were traveling with a mobility scooter as well. We were all awed by the beauty of Wales, and all the picturesque places we were taken to. We all loved going to all the hidden gems that the large cruise ship buses cannot get to. John chose a lovely place for lunch. Wonderful Welsh Rarebit and delightful scones with jam for dessert . We all enjoyed the day full of great conversation and sensational sightseeing. If you REALLY want to see Wales, contact John, of BoutiqueTours, exceptional service start to finish. You will be glad you did! Thank you John for making this a trip to remember!

Holyhead always has a shortage of private tour guides and you definitely benefited from booking early to secure our services as we could have sold this date to another 25 cruise customers from on board your ship. We get many cruise tours secured 12 months or more in advance as cruise passengers strive to secure one of the best rated private cruise tours of the whole cruise.

It was my personal pleasure to be of service to you and to provide you with a quality private cruise tour experience during your day ashore at Holyhead. I hope that one day you all get the chance to return and I can show you more of our beautiful country.

We have recently returned from a wonderful visit to North Wales, where we toured with John Hadwin of Boutique Tours. This was at the beginning of a land-vacation to England and North Wales, and later, a cruise-vacation to the British Isles, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. We had made plans to stay in Liverpool, and from there, we wanted to see North Wales. John picked us up at our hotel in Liverpool, and we started our tour to North Wales.
We chose to do the 3-Night North Wales Tour & Stay, so we stayed at their lovely B&B, Alice Court, in Llandudno.
The 3 days we spent touring with John was the best way to see a wide variety of places and sights. John's background in tourism lends to his knowledge about every sight we went to. He gave just enough information and if we had questions or wanted more in-depth information, he would explain further. We were given many opportunities for photo stops. We were very impressed with all the places we saw. North Wales is truly a beautiful place! John has many spectacular (secret or lesser known) places that he showed us, and his van is just the right size to access them. Big tour buses would never be able to get to some of the places he showed us! John is a good listener, and if he heard me say that something was interesting or beautiful, he would always ask if he should stop for photos. John is flexible, and can make adjustments to the schedule, like when I mentioned that I would like to see Chester, he quickly rearranged our schedule to fit that in.
The lodging at Alice Court was perfect for us. It is located on a quiet street just a block or so from the center of town. It is a charming place, and Jacqui is a gracious hostess. We had Room 2, and it was a good size, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, and a delicious breakfast. John and Jacqui work together as a team, and they did little "extras" to make our stay perfect. Jacqui found out that I prefer cream (not milk) for my coffee, and the next morning, she had it for me. She even went to her favorite butcher to get Black Pudding and made it special for us. John provided suggestions for dinners and made our reservations.
We highly recommend Boutique Tours and Alice Court and hope to return and visit different areas of North Wales in the future.

Thank for your lovely review about my private tour services. My personal concierge tour service is a new development, linking up the private day tour arrangements to accommodation and restaurant bookings. It's a complete service where you can simply sit back and realx and know that everything is taken care of.

It was my great pleasure to be of service to you and to provide you with a custom tailor made tour. I am extremely flexible with the tour arrangements and pick up quickly when someone wants to see something that was not planned. As I am local, I know the territory and terrain, so its very easy to adopt any special request on the day.

It will be our pleasure to be of service to you again when you are ready to return and visit Wales, where we have lots more interesting touring days, beautiful accommodation and quality restaurants which we offer with our enhanced Private Concierge Tour service.

Our native guide ( speaks perfect American English) showed us the real Wales, castles and towns.
The car was clean and he was immaculately dressed. Met us at the pier and delivered us back with lots of time to spare before departure. no anxieties!
His knowledge is vast and answered all our questions with ease.
If you need a guide anywhere in Wales, he is the man.

Just finished up 11 day tour of wales with John. Had my mother in law with us. She has mobility issues and couldn’t manage access to all of the sights. John stayed behind and engaged in historical discussions while we the rest of us walked. He has knowledge of this little gems unavailable by others. John is very flexible and accommodating to our changing needs. We would use him again.

He is also quite skillful in avoiding traffic on bank holidays going the more scenic route.

Operator and sole proprietor means a lot. Customer service is essential to his business and it shows.

I have used this tour service several times while visiting my mother-in-lawi in North Wales, as we do not have a car at our disposal. John will customize your tour to whatever your interests are and take you wherever you wish to go, on your timetable. He does his research, so, along the way, you get informative narrative and amusing stories. There are frequent photo stops at the best vantage points.
I cannot say enough about John’s infinite patience and warm personality. My mother-in-law has very limited mobility and can sometimes be difficult as a result. John handled the situation beautifully. His van is well-equipped to handle special needs. I will definitely use his services again when in the area.
