North Wales Guided Tours
NEW Executive Transfers is a fully licenced, registered and insured travel company who create memorable bespoke or itinerary private North Wales Guided Tours for customers from across the globe.
Our driver/guides are all Welsh born and bred and passionate about all things Wales. With an intimate knowledge of the landscape, history and culture of Wales, we’re ideally placed to help you create your perfect bespoke North Wales Guided Tour.
Our driver/guides are licenced professional drivers in their own right. With many thousands of miles a year of commerical driving under their belts, you can relax and enjoy your tours whilst forgetting about the narrow roads and oncoming traffic!
Our owner and head driver/guide, Chris, has been lucky to travel the globe in his previous career and realised that Wales, with it’s unique mixture of stunning scenery, military and industrial history and diverse culture, could hold its head high against any other country in the world. Infact, visiting international customers of Chris’ previous manufacturing company loved their ”day off” North Wales Guided Tours so much that an idea was born and NEW Executive Transfers was created!
North Wales is an ancient and unspoilt Land where History meets Legend, Mountains flow into the Sea, Mediaeval Architecture meets Industrial Revolution, World Class outdoor pursuits meet 1st Class Travel and an ancient language and unique culture meet 5 start Hotels and a flourishing foodie culture.
Wales may be a small country but its packed with things to see and do – and all the main attractions of North Wales are within a relatively small area making it ideal for day trips from a central base. There are a number of fabulous hotels in the area which we can advise on.
North Wales also has excellent travel links. Manchester Airport is the largest international airport outside of London and is less than an hours drive from the North Wales border. Ferries from Anglesey’s Holyhead Port link directly to Dublin in Ireland and trains from Chester and Crewe, just across the border, link directly into the UK mainline rail network.
No wonder the Rough Guide voted Wales as one of the top 10 countries in the World to visit.
On a private guided tour of North Wales, our guides will make Wales come to life for you whilst you relax in comfort in our executive Mercedes Benz people carriers.
Forget about driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road, forget about the complexities of organising your own tour, forget about the narrow lanes and oncoming traffic and forget about finding somewhere to park – just sit back and enjoy the outstanding views whilst our local and knowledgeable guide tells you everything there is to know about this beautiful and ancient country.
And finally, your tour is private to you and your immediate family or group only. You won’t be asked to share with any other people and you can swap and change your itinarary as you go – even on the day.
We can help you organise your own fully customised North Wales Guided Tour with memorable experiences fully bespoke to you.
Or you can chose from one of our suggested itinerary tours that takes you to a selection of the best sites and experiences that North Wales has to offer. Or we can mix the two.
Single or multi day guided tours – no problem . Different accomodation each night – no problem. Fitting in a few days in Wales around a bigger tour of the UK – no problem. In fact , we can recommend our tour partners in other areas of the UK to help you continue your holiday in style or we can provide transfers to airports and railway stations to help you get to or from Wales.
Just get in touch to discuss your requirements and we’ll help create your dream North Wales Guided Tour. Remember, it’s your holiday and we’re here to make your trip to North Wales the best it can be.
Fully bespoke tours can involve almost anything you wish – we pride ourselves in being able to organise experiences out of the ordinary that aren’t immediately obvious on the internet or being able to help you put together the pieces of your ancestral jigsaw puzzle.
How about your own stately home with a Welsh celebrity chef for the weekend?? Or a visit to a working farm to see the sheep dogs at work and see how Welsh cakes are made. Or we could help you find the remote villages where your ancestors grew up and the churches they were married in.
Talk to us about your requirements and we’ll do our utmost to come up with suggestions to make your North Wales Guided Tour as memorable as possible.
