King Edward built a castle in Conwy, King Arthur slayed a giant in Snowdonia, and the Romans laid the foundations for the town of Chester: this part of the world is packed full of myths and marvels.

And on this tour, your guide takes you on a journey through the best of the must-see sights.

You explore Conwy where a castle watches over a bustling harbour town. You visit Betws-Y-Coed, a quaint village nestling amongst the stunning mountains of Snowdonia. And you explore Chester, a town that’s blessed with one of the most brilliant cathedrals in all of England.

It’s a day tour that’s perfect for anyone who enjoys a mixture of castles, beautiful landscapes, and curious towns.

I fully enjoyed every place we stopped. But the best part was the learning of Welsh history and music , the tour guide Chris was very knowledgeable but gave a modern twist to the folk stories, he and Ritchie were very personable and all on the bus had such a great day. Extremely enjoyable day. Many thanks Janet (Australia )

I thought this day trip was absolutely fantastic and our guide, Chris, was a huge part of making sure the day was a smooth one. I loved getting to see Conwy Castle and the small town of Conwy — including “The Smallest House in Great Britain.” Snowdonia National Park was absolutely stunning. I found the city of Chester to be a bit underwhelming, but it’s tough for anything to follow the sights of Snowdonia. Personally, I would have preferred 20 more minutes riding around Snowdonia and a bit less time in Chester, but I’m just being nit-picky. The trip included many sights and the commentary by Chris was superb. For an authentic Welsh meal, I would highly recommend the “Welsh Rarebit” from Alpine Coffee Shop in Betws-y-Coed. Just make sure you’re a fan of lots of cheese! Chris mentioned that we were running slightly behind schedule, but we made it back to Manchester at roughly 7:25pm. On a trip like this, it’s not possible to satisfy 100% of everyone’s preferences, but there was a clear effort to accommodate everyone’s vision for the day. Overall, it was wonderful and I recommend it highly.

Simon is a great storyteller and a very good driver. We have had a wonderful day in the castle, Snowdonia and Chester.

We personally would have preferred more time at Snowdonia national park to do a small hike over the time in Chester. By the time we got to Chester shops were closing

Rabbies as a tour operator with their smaller busses is a better option than the operators with the large coach busses. It is a much more enjoyable touring experience. Our driver Chris was knowledgeable and entertaining. He was more than a driver he was our host for the day. I am looking forward to my next tour with Rabbies.
