The North Wales Adventure is a full-day (9-hour / 140mile / 225km) tour that takes you to places in Wales you thought didn’t (or couldn’t) exist. Your jolly driver & tour escort (no grumpy ones here!) will keep you fully informed on points of interest and general knowledge regarding the ever-changing panoramic views.

Your vehicle will be a latest model, purpose-built sightseeing specification with massive panoramic windows, full PA system, overhead parcel shelves, luggage compartment(s), reading lights and forced air ventilation. Some even have reclining seats but you won’t need those!

Every tour is unique, special and memorable and allows you to partake in as much (or little) as you feel comfortable with. You will never be put under any commitment or pressure to do anything that you don’t wish to. This is sightseeing the way sightseeing was written!

The North Wales Adventure tour is our flagship product with the first commercial tour done on 1st March 2003. Since then it has won many accolades and awards and entertained many thousands of happy clients including celebrities, dignitaries and VIP’s. We’ve been featured on TV all over the World!

After we’ve admired the amazing 2,000 year old City Of Chester, with its Roman heritage and ancient racecourse we’ll hit the road to the mysterious and legendary land of Wales in a 60-minute fully-narrated journey, navigating the spectacular A55 coastal road with its magical stories and mystical legends.  On a clear day you’ll see Liverpool with all those poor souls waving who decided not to join this tour!

Arriving in Llandudno, home to a magnificent Victorian holiday retreat, you’ll see the Great Orme and marvel at the views where, on a clear day, you can see the Isle of Man!  We’ll visit the 1,100 year old hidden chapel of St. Tudno with its Blue Window and Stigmata. Then it’s a stroll down the original wooden Pier out to sea is a must and this is the place to buy those Welsh souvenirs!

Then it on to the town of Conwy, constructed by the English monarch Edward I between 1283 and 1289 as one of the key fortresses in his ‘iron ring’ of castles to contain the Welsh, was built to prompt such a humbling reaction with its fabulous wall circuit of over 3/4 mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers. The first time that you catch sight of the castle you’ll know you are in the presence of a historic site which still casts a powerful spell.
Now, brace yourselves for what BusyBus has become known for (and, we modestly add, have won National awards for) the North Wales Adventure element of the tour. Into Snowdonia National Park using carefully selected routes and taking you well and truly off the beaten track to viewpoints of wonder! You’ll feel like you own Snowdonia in the tranquillity and ambience (and adventure) we’ve prepared!

No trip to North Wales would be complete without a stop at the “capital”, Betws-Y-Coed  (prayer-house in the woods). Interestingly, whilst right in the centre of Snowdonia National Park, an exclusion boundary has allowed this fairy-tale town to flourish into the centre of outdoor tourism in Wales. With its many shops, cafe’s, pubs and locals, it simply can’t fail to impress!

We will pass through Llangollen, the starting station for the famous and still fully-functional steam railway along with many other “claim to fames”.

You get a unique chance to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford in 1795 and still taking canal barges across the valley high above the ground.
