It never rains in North Wales, well not often anyway. However, we are in a mountainous and coastal region, so for the day, you should bring a waterproof jacket (with a hood) and suitable walking shoes. If for any reason it is necessary for us to cancel a tour, we will refund any amount paid in advance. To reserve your tour, we will require full payment for short notice bookings (less than one month) in advance, with a 10% deposit applicable (non refundable) for bookings beyond one months notice, and the balance due 14 days prior to your tour date. We accept major credit cards (regret not Amex) or international bank transfers for bookings beyond one months notice. We carry full insurance, but recommend that all our visitors take out comprehensive travel insurance prior to their vacation.
