Having enjoyed walking the North Wales Coast Path in March 2011, we contacted Gillian and Eurwyn at Anglesey Walking Holidays, who arranged a superb trip for six of us oldish "lads" along the Anglesey Coast Path this March. Nothing was too much trouble for Gillian and Eurwyn...B&B's, lunches, dinner reservations, maps, route descriptions, pick ups and luggage transfers...all perfectly organised. The Path itself is superb and excellently signposted, so that we never struggled to find our way, even in the more remote areas. Folk we met were always friendly and we easily managed to find a good pub each evening to finish off the day. In the six and a half days walking we covered 95 miles and now look forward to finshing the Path in the near future. I can thoroughly recommend signing up with Gillian and Eurwyn any time.

Having enjoyed our time with Anglesey Walking Holidays to such an extent on our Summer 2011 visit, we didn't hesitate to book again for the end of January/beginning of February 2012 hoping to experience the same amazing holiday in chillingly cold weather..! Well, now we are home, I can truly say that the only disappointment was indeed the weather which was remarkably mild and, at times, incredibly sunny..! The trip organisers, Gillian and Eurwyn Williams offer a friendly and warm welcome which makes the holiday so relaxing from the first moment. They are truly interested in you, in getting to know you and in doing their utmost to ensure your trip goes as well and as smoothly as it possibly can. We were quite overwhelmed at how pleased they were to share in our news when we decided to get engaged in Beaumaris on the second day..!

Due to the season, some of the B&B's we had stayed in and restaurants we visited on our Summer trip were closed but on every occasion, Gillian and Eurwyn had found a more than adequate alternative and were keen to ensure that it did not affect the enjoyment of our holiday in any way. In fact, we quite enjoyed the change; visiting new places and meeting new people, whilst at the same time also enjoyed re-visiting old favourites. We had also asked for a slight variation to our walking holiday as though we repeated the walk on the Northern side of the Island, we wanted to continue a little further round to include South Stack and Treardur Bay and Gillian and Eurwyn were more than happy to accommodate our request. On occasions when we didn't see Gillian and Eurwyn as we were making our own way to and from the B&B, they were still eager to maintain contact with us to ensure all our needs were being met.

Finally, whilst we were on our walking holiday, we were delighted to hear from Gillian and Eurwyn that Anglesey Walking Day Tours had received an award for Best Activity Provider on the Island. In our opinion, the award is richly deserved. I would not hesitate in booking this trip again and have every confidence that we will return on a regular basis. Anglesey is a truly beautiful location and even offers a glimpse of the sun, during the winter..! What more could you ask for?

Walking Anglesey's Coastal Trail is a wonderful holiday in North Wales, and Eurwyn and Gillian at Anglesey Walking Holidays make it a truly enjoyable experience. We walked the entire Trail over 15 days in 2010 and couldn't be happier with the support they provided. Their selection of B&B's and logistical support was superb. Most importantly, they really listened to our concerns and adapted to our needs. We enjoyed our walk so much in 2010 that we asked Eurwyn and Gillian to organize a return trip in 2011 when we repeated walks on our favorite parts of the Coastal Trail as well as taking new hikes around Conway Castle on the north coast of Wales and Glendalogh in County Wicklow, Ireland. Again their professional and caring help ensured a smooth and fun trip. You can't go wrong with letting Anglesey Walking Holidays organize your walking holiday along the Anglesey Coastal Trail.

I can't say enough about my wonderful vacation wandering around the Isle of Anglesey! Eurwyn and Gillian were absolutely fabulous - going above and beyond to ensure that this Alaskan felt at home and welcome. The lodgings were first rate and the food absolutely delicious. My only regret was that I didn't have enough time to walk/hike the entire island but that is something I hope to rectify next year. Highly recommended!

We had an excellent wealking trip in Angelsey with fantastic weather and excellent services from Anglesey walking holidays. The B&B were excellent all lunches we passed a pub or somewhere else to eat. We got the walking distances that fit us. The nature and scenary were great. We also hade 2 days walking in Ireland in our trip but I wished that we had spent all our days in Anglesey instead. On top of this we had a ferry trip to Ireland with a calm sea. I could really recommend a walking trip on Anglesey.
