Full description

Leave the bustling city of Manchester and travel to Wales on a 90-minute fully-narrated journey arriving at Llandudno. Visit the 12th century hidden chapel of St. Tudno on the Great Orme. Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed in 1283 with a fabulous 3/4-mile wall circuit. Go inside Conwy Castle, a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with the french Richard The Engineer.

Head into Snowdonia National Park using carefully-selected, off-the-beaten-track routes with a stop at the “capital of North Wales”: Betws-Y-Coed prayer house in the woods. Finally, take the unique opportunity to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford in between 1795 and 1805. Prepare to be entertained and informed from your experienced guide and driver.

Such a lovely experience. Frank was an incredibly cheerful, witty, knowledgeable guide and driver. The trip was full of stunning sites, ample time to explore in each place, and overall happy experiences. I would highly recommend anyone do this to get out of the bustling town of Manchester and explore the mountains, countryside and charm of Northern Wales, we could not have chosen a better trip for our day. 5/5 especially for Frank - we highly recommend!

I had again a more than relaxing, interesting and perfectly organized trip, like every time I book a trip through GetYourGuide! Our driver and guide Frank from BusyBus was awesome! Super funny, totally animating, provided us with important historical facts, seemed very competent and made the excursion more than comfortable! Always happy to do it again and again!!!

I booked this tour for me and my partner, at the last moment without glancing over any reviews, and surprisingly it turned out to be the best decision for a day trip. The tour bus was spacious and the driver james got some really nice driving skills. The tour guide for the day was Aderine (hope i am spelling it correctly). He was full of energy, he was constantly cracking jokes, throwing some useful facts and figures.
