“Hilarious Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Had a great afternoon on the Gavin and Stacey tour (7th June). The tour guide was great fun/lovely, and Dave the Coach Driver (aka Pauline) was also fab. The tour was full with a great group of people. Islands in the Stream was playing as we got on the original Dave's coaches tour bus and everyone was singing along! We visited lots of interesting places, the church where Ness nearly got married was just so pretty. Thanks to Glenda who lives in Gwen/Stacey's house, she opens up her house for the tour and only accepts donations to the RSPCA. We also had a little quiz inside the house, which was fun. There were lots of photo opportunities on the tour. The weather was lovely which made it even better. I would recommend this 3 hour tour, its well worth the money and great fun.

“Awesome Tour!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

What a tour!!! We are huge Gavin And Stacey fans... We met at Cardiff Railway Station... The bus was a little late turning up, but it eventually turned up and it was the official Dave coaches bus, which starred in all series, it was definitely worth the wait, it pulled up with Islands In The Stream playing, totally made the tour with the music from every episode. Our tour guide Sally knew lots of inside info about the series which made it quite interesting. We visited lots of places, like Stacey's house, the slots, the church and the caravan site, and many more but I won't spoil the surprise. It's a pity the other house (Gavin's) don't allow visitors. That would of been good. We really enjoyed inside of Stacey's house where there was a little quiz. The woman who lives there is very kind letting everyone have a look inside the house, we signed the visitors book and we donated to the RSPCA. We stopped at a nice pub for a break before we started the tour again. There was an opportunity to have your photo took in the seat of the bus and in the chair in the arcade where Nessa worked. The bus driver was friendly she even told us some stories about the cast. It's good to have knowledge about every series so you can answer any questions people have... I would definitely recommend this tour it's so worth the money and you have a lot of fun singing the songs... We visited the location a year before as we looked for them on the internet, but it's so much better on the trip as you get the info on the series.. The weather was brilliant.. Really hope the Dave coach keeps on running. Fingers crossed...

“What a cracking day in barry island!!! Xxx”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

Had such a great day on the Gavin and Stacey tour! Loved 'Sally from the valley' 'TIDY'.. Got to see lots of locations throughout barry which were used in filming and the tour lasted approx 3 hours long! Barry island is 'CRACKING' if you're lucky to get a sunny day and can have a nice weekend away! We stayed in Cardiff Airport Travelodge which is actually in Barry and is only about an 8 minute drive! Very cheap to stay there too!

Overall the tour was definitely worth the money! Although I'm not sure how much longer Dave's Coach will last seeing as we were told it's over 25 years old and it definitely struggled going up hills! X
