Itineraries are all lovely and absolutely enjoyed every minute! Thanks again Shelly for the wonderful tour!

I had a great time on my day trip to North Wales in September 2021. Our guide was great, and I loved all the stops! It was so beautiful and we got to see a lot in just one day. I felt like I had a good amount of time at each spot we visited, but now I'd love to come back and see more of Wales! The trip felt like really good value for the money. The minibus was comfortable and there were a number of single seats so as a solo traveler I was happy that I didn't have to sit next to anyone :) I booked as part of a visit to Liverpool and would absolutely recommend the day trip for anyone wanting to see a bit of nature and some towns in Wales without too much time or their own car.

An unforgettable journey visiting the North Wales. The itinerary is well organised. The beautiful scenic spots of nature, historical site are impressive. Most of all we have Adrian be our guide / driver. The wonderful song “Ferry cross the Mersey” was played when we were crossing the Mersey River Tunnel that kicked off the day’s journey. What a wonderful arrangement! Adrian is knowledgeable, humorous and finds various ways to interact with group members, and he cares about the needs of group members. Will recommend this trip to my friends.

Our tour guide was Shelly and she was just amazing, she was very knowledgable and funny. This was the first time using busybus and I will definitely be using it again and hopefully with Shelly. She made the tour that much better, you could really tell she loves what she does. Thank you Shelly!

A great day out, excellent, personable, entertaining guide, saw loads. An ideal way to see a lot of things in a short while as no time wasted deciding where to go or trying to find parking. Recommended

A fantastic day out in Wales and a friendly and knowledgeable driver/guide.
