2016 marks WELSH DRAGON TOURS twelfth season, and we find ourselves wondering where a decade has gone. We may look a little older, a little grey here and there, but happily, Caernarfon Castle (a new viewing platform at The Queen's Gate) and Snowdon (The new summit complex) have barely changed since we escorted our first clients around the most beautiful region, in the most beautiful country in the British Isles. It still gives us a slightly guilty kick to hear the "oohs" and "aahs" from visitors, having been convinced (lets face it, by consistently good marketing) that their origins lie firmly rooted in 'The Emerald Isle', even if their family names are Jones or Williams! Of course, many of our visitors have always known of their Welsh heritage, have done their research, and it is very rewarding, and touching, for us to help someone locate their ancestor's last resting place, a former family home, or even a relative who is still in the land of the living, and they may never have met..
The natural scenery and terrain of Snowdonia and Anglesey provide some of the finest and most challenging outdoor activity in the World, and the sector should receive every support in continuing to meet the demand, but not everyone comes with hiking boots and a mountain bike. More and more people from overseas, who are looking for an alternative to the large coach vacation, enjoy what we do for them. They want to travel at their own pace, in a small group, or simply with their family, and, often, visit places of personal importance that are not covered by our standard itineraries. If this is their agenda, we build an achievable, first class programme around their priorities, with the level of accommodation they want, from the homely and informal Bed and Breakfast guesthouse to five star country houses, all of which are our partners in making our client's Welsh experience memorable for all the right reasons. From one to ten days, we have a tour for you.
