You know a place is good when even an iPhone can capture its beauty. I came to Wales almost on a whim–booking the tour was a last minute decision we made after realizing we would have a day to spare and would be in the area. To get the most out of the one day we had, we booked a day trip with Busy Bus. A lot of travelers will put down doing organized tours, but you can’t deny their convenience and efficiency if you only have a short amount of time to experience a certain destination. Plus, having a guide gives you a chance to learn about the sites you visit and take away some knowledge. Tours also give free time to explore on your own, so they’re not always the picture of tourists with fanny packs following around a guide with a microphone like you may imagine. Our day trip took us through Llandudno, Conwy, Llangollen, and more. I got to go into Britain’s smallest house, learn how to pronounce the longest railway station name in the world, walk across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, see the charm of Betws-Y-Coed, the moodiness of an overcast seaside resort, and the lush greenness of Snowdonia National Park. It was a fun-filled day of exploring, and I’m happy that Wales is now on the list of countries I’ve been to!
I used Busy Bus for this day trip! It was the Northern Wales Adventure Tour. Find them here: http://www.busybus.co.uk
