3-Day Snowdonia, North Wales and Chester Small-Group Tour from Manchester

3-Day Snowdonia, North Wales and Chester Small-Group Tour from Manchester

There’s an old Welsh saying; “the best shortage is a shortage of words”.

And we can understand why.

Because when you travel through Snowdonia, the beautiful mountains leave you speechless. The Welsh castles’ battle-torn passageways are simply indescribable. And a lot of the destinations are as unpronounceable as they’re unbelievable.

So, on this trip, we let you discover the elusive beauty of Wales.

You enjoy the poetic landscapes and harbour towns that inspired Dylan Thomas, you venture through the inexpressibly beautiful valleys of two of Wales’ famous national parks, and you take in the history of Chester, an English town that sits by the border.

Let the sights speak for themselves and join our tour of North Wales and Chester.
