Carolyn, 1 year ago

Very good value and quality, but basically for old or disabled people. Some timings frustrating- not enough time on some stops/ too much on others. Should have included train up Snowdon. Hotel excellent food clean but too regimented. Bus driver excellent driving but no commentary.
