My husband and I were on holiday in Ireland and I always wanted to visit Wales. So we took the fast ferry from Dublin and spent the day in North Wales. The one day tour with Boutique Tours was more than I had hoped for. We did the Snoden Circle Tour but it also included a Taste of Wales. We started off with a Cheese tasting did some touring and then had lunch at a Vineyard/Cider Farm (where we were introduced to the owner of the Vineyard and he gave us a private tasting of his newest brews that will not be available until later in the fall!) We did more touring (stopping to take time to take pictures, walk through some of the beautiful scenery and attractions, and of course a little shopping) and then stopped for ice cream at Britain's #1 ice cream shop. I have never tasted ice cream so good. Our driver was extremely knowledgeable about Wales, its history and legends. We loved his stories. We got back to the ferry in time to get in the que and get on the return ferry. It was a magnificent day and we are definitely making plans to go back to Wales and spend a week. Boutique Tours will be our first call to help us plan our trip!

John was fantastic. This was an unforgettable tour with multiple stops at secret places with amazing views and stories. John’s local knowledge gave us special insight into life and history in this area. We are forever grateful to him

My daughter, her husband, my husband and I spent two days of touring with John Hadwin of Boutique Tours based in Llandudno. John took us to the famous places like Caernarfon Castle and Bodnent Gardens but also hidden gems like Betws-y-Coed, Llandygai, Capel Curig, and fantastic vistas in Snowdonia National Park. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and knew so much about the current situations in Northern Wales. We thoroughly enjoyed our touring with John and would highly recommend his tours.

My family (with two teenagers) did a whirlwind tour of Scotland, Wales and England and had only one day in Northern Wales. We could not have picked a better way to spend it then with John Hadwin of Boutique Tours. John is extremely knowledgable of the area, its history and its back roads and he is so friendly and personable it feels like you've known him for years. We gave John a short list of places we wanted to visit and asked him to "fill in the rest." In our one day tour we went from Conwy, Llanfairpwllgwyngyll (the short version name), Beaumaris, Caernarfon and all throughout Snowdonia National Park with some breathtaking stops that you would definitely not get on any tour bus. For as many sites and locations that we covered, it didn't feel rushed or hurried in any way...just a beautiful relaxing way to see the beauties of Northern Wales. Even my teenagers loved the trip and actually remember some of the sites thanks to John's witty way to relay a story of historical significance and his ability to connect with the younger generation. If you want a wonderful and memorable tour while visiting Northern Wales, my family and I would most highly recommend Boutique Tours.
