Bore Da/’ Mornin’ or Pnawn Da/afternoon! Originally from the West Country, I moved to Wales over 30 years ago and never looked back. I love my adopted country and have raised two Welsh-speaking kids here. I have been working as a guide and tour manager for 20 years, looking after all sorts of individuals and groups. I love showing off my Wales to all types of visitors - from academics to hikers. Join me!

Check out my website I have a variety of tours from walking tours around Conwy to full-day minibus tours which include a professional driver and executive vehicle Walk the Walls https://www.conwytours.net/walk-the-walls.html and tasty food tours https://www.conwytours.net/food-tours.html plus country hiking tours https://www.conwytours.net/hiking-tours.html and visits to the amazing Conwy Castle https://www.conwytours.net/town--castle.html.

If you want to book any of these tours visit https://www.conwytours.net/book-a-tour.html or contact me for group rates.
As to specialities I come from a rural background and have spent 35 years working as a qualified mountain leader so I love doing tours of the countryside whether in a coach or on foot. But I also have a history degree and have worked for Cadw, Visit Wales and local councils interpreting local historical sites and planning itineraries so that they are accurate but fun!
Being long in the tooth and also self-employed for many years, I have worked on many events and projects so with me you get the mixture of a lot of experience but flexibility and the belief that the clients’ brief counts! I project-managed the official opening of the Wales Coast Path and have planned and led many press trips and tour operator visits. I have worked with individual clients and full coaches both for a few hours or for over a week. As a qualified South West England Blue Badge Guide I take tours that range out of Wales through Gloucestershire, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall. I am also happy to start tours in London, Liverpool and Manchester and bring them into the regions I am qualiified in.

Book me and you’ll go away knowing more about Wales than when you arrived but also feeling happy and entertained.
There’s a posh Welsh word for fareyouwell but round about here we just say ta ta – see you soon!
