All of our Wales travel experiences have been created by us, from a lifetime of exploring our homeland and using our local knowledge of what works, along with extensive experience of world travel and knowing what travellers want.
We never lift itineraries from online or from other companies. We take our guests to the places we love and create our tours with heart. So you know when you're travelling with us you're travelling like a local and discovering the real Wales.
This photo is from yesterday, we were out exploring in our free time, visiting places for some new itineraries that we'll be offering from the spring - what do you think of this beautiful waterfall, would you like to experience this place?

A Monday morning post not about Cemaes, but rather its near neighbour Moelfre, tucked away in a corner of Anglesey. Believe it or not this photo was taken in mid January, proof positive of Anglesey's ability to turn out a deep blue sky, even in midwinter. As you descend on to the shingle beach and the sea and landscape opens in front of you, you would be forgiven for thinking that you had stumbled into a scene cut straight from a Canadian tourist board video. The sea is wide and flat and fringed with mountains. The walk around the headland is perfect for families and takes you past the small but perfectly formed RNLI museum and its moving statues to the courage of rescues past. #anglesey#moelfre#cemaesbay#cemaes
Do you enjoy hiking? Before I met Dan (aka @dubdubdan), I didn’t do ANY sort of hiking. None. Nada. Zip.
Growing up in the pancake-flat lands of northern Minnesota there wasn’t any opportunities to really hike — mainly just walking. (Which I am damn good at.)
Nowadays, after Dan has pushed and pushed and pushed me to get better (many times where I’m continuously complaining and moaning and loathing him), I’ve grown to really enjoy it! More than I ever thought I would.
This particular hike was quite the challenge. Though it doesn’t look like it, this trail — called Moel Morfydd in #NorthWales — featured 4 separate summits and a hike that was more like intense interval training, as you had to go up and down and up and down.
A couple years ago I would have looked at it and said, “Hell to the no! I am not doing that!” But I’ve gotten so much better and more accustomed to pushing myself harder and harder — and I’ve learned to enjoy the task of testing my body; seeing what it can do and how far I can go. ✊🏼💪🏼
Our Highlights Tour has spaces available on Tuesday and Thursday this week. Travelling in a small group from Cardiff, we'll visit Wales' largest castle, explore the scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, walk through woodland to a fairytale waterfall, and end the day on the dramatic south coast.
On the shores of one of Wales' most legendary lakes. It once held a mysterious floating island, which drew the attention of scientist Edmund Halley in the 17th century, and it's also the setting for an ancient tale of the Tylwyth Teg, the welsh fairy folk. This evocative location is going to feature in our Stories and Stones tour next year. We'll be releasing the details soon, please get in touch if you'd like to be the first to hear.
Although St David's is a city (in fact it is Britain's smallest city) in reality it is the size of a large village or small town. Pilgrims have been flocking to the Cathedral here since two pilgrimages to this site were declared equal to one to Rome by Pope Calixtus in the 12th Century. Situated in the centre of a beautiful peninsula, the city is equally popular for walking the Wales Coast Path, wildlife watching boat trips, and water activites as it is for enjoying the independent cafés, restaurants, shops and galleries.
Visit with us on our 2 day Into the West hiking tour, or 5 day Wales Wanderluster tour.
Did you hear — #Wales was named one of the top 20 places to visit in 2020 by the LA Times?! 😮🏴
And as a huge lover of this teeny tiny underrated country in the UK, I’m SO happy Wales is finally getting the recognition it deserves!
But, with that said, you might have no idea that Wales is even a country or great place to visit!
Don’t worry, I didn’t either before I visited. But to help you get inspired to visit this cool destination, I’ve put together a list of the 10 best places to visit in Wales! You can go find the new blog post link in my bio 🤙🏼

“I’m going in!”. A nice steep learning curve for the brave ones on our gorge/canyon trip, and I can imagine this little lady is showing the adults how it’s done. It’s always “you’re the brave one you go first”, I hear all the excuses down in the river 😂
Once you’re in you’re in. The trip has began and you swim on down the pool to find yourself at the next obstacle; the curtain slide.
Easter is on the way and provided we’re not having a snowy April (rare fortunately!), the canyon is still a good trip for families. We’ve got nice warm wetsuits, and we kit you out with all the essentials which includes wetsuit socks, gloves and a hat! There is literally no use being down there if you’re not having a good time, and that means properly geared up and warm enough.
We’re taking quite a lot of bookings now, if you’re interested you can either drop us email or book your trip in less than 60 seconds online on our website 💻 🤙
