What you'll do

We meet outside the tourist information centre where I'll supply the receivers that you use to hear the commentary I'll be relaying through my microphone. That means you can socially distance and linger to take a picture and not miss a word. This is a history tour made interesting with plenty of stories for young and old alike led by a lady in traditional Welsh costume - tall black hat and all. We see the outside of all the main attractions in Conwy - the castle, the church, the walls, Plas Mawr, the gateways and of course the smallest house and quayside. All the time you'll hear about the doings of past and present inhabitants - real and ghostly alike. Your guide is a resident of Conwy so you'll get a real insight into what it is like living in the town today as well as in the past. There'll be plenty of time for picture taking and question answering. The tour takes about one and a half hours and is suitable for pushchairs and strollers though there are some rough paths.

I've been a Official Wales tourist Guide for 20 years taking clients on walks, hikes by the coast, on the hills and through the historic towns of North Wales. I know folks want at least an outline of the history of a town or castle but it is so much better when the experience is peopled with the characters of the past. Travellers want to know the legends and ghost stories connected to the buildings they are walking through. As well as the town's history I have researched and recreated an authentic Welsh lady costume- including the famous black stovepipe hat -which I wear on this family story and history tour which is designed to appeal to all ages.

We had a wonderful tour around Conwy with Amanda! Very knowledgeable and professional, telling lots of different stories about the towns history and a great overall picture of Conwy today, whilst making it fun and engaging. It was really valuable seeing the town from the eyes of a local, getting recommendations for places to get local products and other sites of interest. Overall great value for money and would definitely recommend.

We did this as a private tour as a family. It was a great experience and our 2 Boys were engaged in the walking tour.

This tour with Amanda was wonderful! She is very knowledgeable about Conwy, and how to run successful walking tours, so I knew we were in the company of an expert. It was great fun to learn about a mixture of history and time periods of Conwy, and it was personalised around things Amanda had learned and found interesting in the area, meaning it was told with passion and enthusiasm, and would likely be a different tour every time. We were very impressed that she had even researched and made her own costume, which added an extra element of 'realness' to the flavour of life in old Conwy. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the town, especially if you don't have much time and want to see as much as possible (like us!). Thank you Amanda 😊

This was a great trip, far better than we ever could have imagined. Amanda was friendly, knowledgable and looked amazing!! (she made the out fit herself!). In our opinion there is nothing better than seeing a new place through the eyes of a local and that's exactly what we got. We heard so many stories from the quirky history to top tips on where to eat. We loved it! Amanda is a true professional and will make your tour amazing! This tour is incredible value, go enjoy and don't think twice... and tell Amanda we send our love. x
