Went on the Golden Gower and Mines & Mountains tours on consecutive days. On both days our guide was Adrian, a wonderful guy who was warm, funny, knowledgeable and, most importantly of all, enthusiastic about his material. You'd think something like castle and church layouts would make for rather dull guiding, but somehow Adrian brought it all alive. Also, he has a great singing voice! We had a Tom Jones singalong one day on the way back to Cardiff. I liked that it wasn't constant talking, and we were left alone for some of the drives to appreciate the lovely scenery with some Welsh music in the background. The tour of Gower was really fantastic - beautiful scenery. There was a brief stop at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea, then time allocated for the leisurely walk from Langland Bay to Caswell Bay, and a fair amount of time at Rhossili Bay as well, before ending at Weobley Castle. The Mines & Mountains tour was less value-for-money in a way, because a huge part of it, the excellent Big Pit tour, is conducted by other guides. There was a photo stop for the Brecon Beacons, lunch stop in Brecon (a little underwhelming, I thought, but then again we didn't have much time after lunch to walk around), an informative stop at Brecon Cathedral and then a chance to climb up a hill for more views of the Brecon Beacons. Anyway, to sum up, enjoyable tours with a great guide. Thanks once again Adrian!
