A friend and I went on the Where When Wales Gower Explorer tour and we absolutely loved it! Not even rain or hail ruined our experience. Jon and Jan were so lovely and really know a lot about the area, the information was all interesting and relevant and I feel that not only did I see some absolutely beautiful landscapes I also learned a lot and met two very nice people. I would absolutely recommend doing the Where When Wales tours for anyone wanting to see how beautiful Wales is in great company!

My wife's ancesters coming from Wales, so we wanted to see the Wales countryside when visiting Cardiff. We were most interested in visiting Roman sites and castles. I looked at all the tours from different tour groups and found the Wye Valley Tour from WhereWhenWales that included everything we wanted to see. I was impressed with their high rating from Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet and booked the tour online. Jan the tour guide responded right away.

Jan and her husband John, who drove the very comfortable Mercedes Van, left right on time. We have been on tours all over the world and this is one of the best tours we have ever been on. Jan and John were wonderful, friendly, informative guides. Their knowledge of all things Wales was impressive. We learned so much about Wales and Welch history. They gave us helpful hints for tracking down my wifes ancesters. We can't wait to return to Wales to take more of their tours. If you are planning to visit Cardiff, this is the tour company to use.

Yes, WhereWhenWales team deserves a big round of applause !!! :-)
We, a group of 4 friends from Bangalore, India, booked the Gower Explorer Tour couple of days in advance. We started from Bristol early in the morning and reached Cardiff at 9:45 am. Jan and John welcomed us with sheer warmth and zeal right at the place we got down at Cardiff. They even adjusted the start time of the tour according to our convenience. The transportation was a well-maintained and luxurious mini coach.
From the moment the trip started, Jan delved us deep into the history and geography of Wales, the Welsh tradition, the origin of Welsh language and what not. With her broad knowledge and accuracy of facts mixed with a lovely voice and charm, she made the description so interesting and lively that one could hardly give it a miss.
We covered the National WaterFront Museum, Langland Bay, Caswell Bay, Rhosilli Bay and the Welsh country side. Each site was beautifully scenic and also breath-taking. For us, though the whether wasn't very suitable with cloudy and rainy patches all through the day, we enjoyed a lot at every spot. Jan and John gave us enough time to view, admire, capture and live for a few moments at every spot.
Its said that, the value of a place is not only due to its beauty, but also due to the people whom you visit the place with. And it is because of Jan and John, that we brought back with us the best of memories from Wales.
Highly recommended.
Jan and John, it wasn't just a tour, it was an experience... an experience worth cherishing !!! :-))
