About
Our tour takes in three of the principal castles of South Wales, beginning with a drive around Cardiff castle, a site of historical strategic importance. We then visit the enchanting ‘fairytale castle’ Castell Coch, followed by Wales’ largest castle, the imposing Caerphilly castle. The tour then continues with a drive through the mountain scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park and a chance to explore the market town of Brecon. This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to explore some of South Wales’ finest castles, enjoy scenic mountain views and experience a historical market town.

An enjoyable day
Jul 2021
Having booked during covid restrictions we were half expecting the tour to be cancelled at the last minute due to lack of numbers. However, we were very pleased when Jim turned up to take us on our tour. We were the only 2 people on the tour & Jim was an excellent guide. He made us feel very comfortable & enthusiastically told us some great stories of Wales & the castles. We were given plenty of time at each stop to explore on our own. An extremely enjoyable day.

Excellent customer service
Jun 2021
Due to the changing opening times of Caerphilly castle, our tour was moved to 9:30am instead of 10am but the email went into my junk folder so I didn't know.
The tour company had one of their drivers arrive at 9:30am and wait for us in case we showed up at 10am, which we did, and we ended up getting a private tour!
So considerate and very much appreciated.
Our guide was funny, friendly, knowledgeable and a safe driver!
We saw two castles and the gorgeous Brecon Beacons.
We even got to stop at the Penderyn distillery and got a free packet of Welsh cakes at the end!
Excellent customer service and a great start to our trip in Wales.

Great way to explore what Wales has to offer
Mar 2020 • Solo
Had a great day with a wonderful guide. Try to go a bit “off-peak-season” as the travel company is small. Lots of time to ask questions and walk around all the sights you visit.
This tour takes you to some of the key spots in (in my case only South) Wales and gives you an idea of what more Wales has to offer.
Great value for money and I would warmly recommend it to anyone.
