I booked the 10 day/ 11 night package with Angelsey Walking Holidays (Gillian and Eurwyn). The service that they provide is quite unique and execptional - over and above anything I've experienced before with similar companies. All the reviews here are in no way exaggerated:-)

All the logistics (pick ups, drop offs) were faultless. The day packs invaluable, both in terms of detailed descriptions of the route and interesting things to do and see along the way. The B&B's all different, charming and comfortable. With great breakfasts.
Gillian and Eurwyn were genuinely concerned that I had a good holiday, were very flexible and "available", providing extra help (eg booking me into restaurents in busy towns!).

As a solo walker (walking in a heat wave!) this gave me all the help and reassurance that I needed - the only thing I had to do was walk!
Angelsey and the coastal path are just wonderful. Each day was different and varied - beautiful, isolated coast, golden beaches, empty coves, lots of wildlife and birds, quaint seaside towns and interesting historical sites.
I felt taken care of every step of the way - I couldn't have had a better holiday.

Eurwyn and Gillian from ANGLESEY WALKING HOLIDAYS couldn't have been more helpful organising our 6 day walking trip round Anglesey coastal footpath, especially as we had to change the dates of the trip at short notice. Nothing was too much trouble. We met Eurwyn at the Anglesey Arms and were impressed with the maps and notes he supplied to assist our walk. The care shown by them during the walk, checking we were safely where we should be etc was much appreciated.
The footpath is very well maintained and the scenery spectacular.
Thank you for a great trip

For our first attempt at an independent walking holiday, my wife and I chose the Anglesey Coastal Path. Anglesey Walking Holidays arranged all of our housing and transportaion and provided us with detailed information and maps for each walk. Eurwyn Williams provided excellent service throughout our stay. The B&Bs were all excellent. Our bags were always waiting for us when we arrived. The walking directions, though they often seemed quite cryptic when we tried to make sense of them in advance, proved very accurate and understandable when we were on the path. Whenever we needed transportation to the start of a walk or to our lodgings for the night, Eurwyn arrived promptly in his van. He even provided us with a phone so that we could contact him when we needed to.
We felt that having a local company providing our logistical support was a big plus. All of Eurwyn's advice about restaurants and things to see was excellent. He booked dinner reservations for us when they were necesary and provided many other small services. The cost our holiday was extremely reasonable.
We have traveled to Europe several times in the past few years, and since we don't have easy access to a bank in our small Alaska town, paying deposits has always been a big hassle, but Anglesey Walking Holidays gave us the option of paying with Paypal, one of the small but convenient services that made our walk the best vacation we have taken.
Our only disappointment was that Gillian was busy during our stay, so she remained a mythical creature.
The Anglesey Coastal Path provided a varied and often spectacular walk, and Anglesey Walking Holidays offered services that took the stress out of planning and logistics. I have no qualms about recommending Anglesey Walking Holidays to anyone who is considering an independent walking holiday.

Thank you for you detailed and generous review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your holiday experience with us and that we succeeded to help you accomplish a stress free holiday. Yes our island is spectacular, and it is good that you preferred to buy local. Just to assure you Gillian is definitely not a mythological creature, but unfortunately she was away on business during your stay.

Excellent walking area. We did the walking (me and daughter) Anglesey Walking Holidays did the rest. Standard of service, from booking and throughout holiday was excellent and clearly Eurwyn and Gillian are determined to keep it that way. Additional and clear advantage from booking with local operators.
Highly recommended

My husband and I are active sixty somethings, from Vancouver, Canada ... and we've just returned from a superb 26 day walking holiday in NW Wales and Ireland. When on holidays, we prefer to view natural landscapes and visit areas less populated ... Anglesey Island, Wales and the Wicklow Way, Ireland, suited us perfectly. A simply marvelous adventure - arranged by Anglesey Walking Holidays' hosts, Eurwyn and Gillian. Other than booking our flight, providing the basic info re total number of walking days we had available, and sharing some personal interests of ours' (geology and art quilting), all arrangements and details were entirely and very competently organized for us. All we needed to do was enjoy our day walking the countrysides, say hi to the sheep, try to identify the unfamiliar birds, remember if we had put on our sunscreen, and decide on which pub or restaurant for dinner. We were transported to and from train or ferry stations, provided with well detailed maps and information about our daily routes, including historical features and highlights to be encountered while walking. All the B&B's were selected and booked for us; each clean, well appointed and very friendly. Their Full Wales and Irish breakfasts guaranteed to give you lots of energy for the day. Our luggage magically moved from stop to stop, while we simply walked with a daypack. Suggestions about local restaurants for evening meals was provided, even reservations made if our choice was known to be popular. And, quite surprisingly, a personal visit with a very talented local Art Quilter was arranged for me, and a book on local geology, was lent to my DH's as we had mentioned his keen interest on rocks ... absolutely everything was taken care of by AWH. Eurwyn and Gillian couldn't have been more helpful or better organized - they are definitely a First Rate company, and genuinely nice people. We highly recommend a holiday with Anglesey Walking Holidays, they do their utmost to exceed your expectations. They certainly did ours'. Jennifer C

What can we say after such a fantastic review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit to the Isle of Anglesey, Wales, and that you were able to experience our island to the full by means of our services. When we set up our walking tour company it was for people like yourselves, who enjoy and love to experience new things to the full. We loved to hear your daily tales and your amazement re our natural landscapes and ways of life. We are proud to be able to help you experience and enhance some of you personal interests - archaeology and patchwork quilting. This is something a local company like us can do. It was all a huge pleasure. Many thanks.
