    Lovely morning in Conwy
    We had a lovely morning walking around Conwy with Amanda who is so friendly and enjoyable to be with. She is also quite knowledgeable concerning the history of the area. Highly recommend spending some time with Amanda when in Conwy which is a lovely place to be.

    Lots of interesting history presented in a clear and engaging way. Not strenuous in terms of walking. Highly recommend. About an hour and 15 minutes or so long.

    Simply the Best.
    Amanda is simply the best guide I have had over my lifetime of travels. Words of praise and accolades do not seem enough to describe how wonderful this tour was. But to try: Amanda had comprehensive knowledge of Welsh history, and location history, but also of the natural settings of Wales. To this she added a natural story teller's knack of informing without over telling. She draws out the gems of the story. Finally, she had a great sense of what we might want to see, might want to know about, and the pace at which you could travel and absorb what we were seeing and at the same time when to let us explore on our own. We covered Celtics ruins, and Roman ruins, and, of course, castles, but also beautiful nature, and quaint villages, and yet, felt it was within our energy level and none was overdone. With her help, we created family memories we will never forget. In short, you can do no better, at any price, than Amanda.

    An experience that enhances your Conwy visit
    Amanda knows her history and tailors the tour to your interests. Experienced, knowledgeable, and a natural. Was great to walk with a local to give you inside information on other things to do too. Most enjoyable and informative.

    The Most Amazing Tour Guide Ever!
    I cannot begin to express how incredibly fortunate we were to stumble across and book a day tour with Amanda. I found her so accommodating from the minute we started working out a good itinerary for my elderly parents, my husband, and I. Her communications were prompt offering us various options. The suggested itinerary did not disappoint! Amanda’s recommendations were spot on, we enjoyed every minute of our day and created some wonderful memories that we will always cherish. I just can’t say enough about how perfect the day was - from the marvelous driver she secured, to her timings, and places we visited. Her knowledge of the area is just mind blowing and we all learnt so much - at the same time she was so attentive to my parents and mindful of their limited mobility. We could not have had a better time touring the Conwy area. Thank you Amanda - you really are amazing at what you do.

    Start you visit to Conwy with Amanda
    We had a delightful walk with Amanda in Conwy. Book ahead so you can see Amanda early in your stay. She provides a great introduction to the town of Conwy, including great food and drink recommendations.

    Perfect introduction to Conwy
    We booked this tour fairly last minute. We had good information from Amanda prior to the day, including clear instructions of where to meet and that the tour would involve steps and uneven surfaces (not a problem for us). Amanda was great, friendly, fun and had a wealth of knowledge not only about the walls but Conwy and the surrounding areas. She taught us a little bit of Welsh too. We throughly enjoyed this walking tour and would highly recommend Amanda’s services.

    Must do tour of Conwy
    When visiting Conwy I would start my trip with a morning tour by Amanda! She tells you all the amazing stories and hits all the points in history not only about Conwy but you learn about Wales and the amazing Culture. Her outfit is truly amazing too adding to the experience! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amanda to everyone and anyone, I learnt loads and got great bearings for Conwy so we could explore better later. It made us want to come back too!

    Conwy is a must see and Amanda is wonderful
    She was personable, knowledgeable, funny, and had many interesting facts and stories. She also asked us what we wanted to hear and tailored her tour to our interests. We ended up with one other couple and we made friends with them as a result of her tour!

    Excellent Guide
    While on a Viking cruise of the British Isles we went on a land excursion in Wales. Lucky for us, Amanda Whitehead was our guide. She is amazing, an expert guide. While super smart and funny, you also want her to be your best friend. I highly recommend the brilliant Amanda Whitehead. Greetings from Florida, Amanda. Ann Flynn

    A Walking Tour not to be missed
    Amanda was both knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed the Historical Walking Tour of Conwy immensely and would recommend unreservedly. The walking tour went ahead although there were only two of us booked on that day. Thank you Amanda

The experience was phenomenal!!

Amanda was so knowledgeable about literally almost everything. You ask a minor question and she has an entire background story and history to tell you all about it and bring the magical experience to life for you.

Imagining my visit without a tour guide now seems dull, flat and undoable thanks to Amanda 😊😊

We booked our guide, Amanda, through Tours by Locals and she was excellent, providing just the right amount of information about each of the sites we visited. Amanda was polite, knowledgeable and very helpful. The walking pace was ideal for a couple in their late 60s.

Amanda met us at our hotel in Conwy town centre. The tour included the harbour, the smallest house in Great Britain, Conwy castle, the town walls and St Mary’s church. Amanda also showed us the best places to shop for cakes, chocolates, cheese and pork pies n the town.

Highly recommended.

Incredible tour. Very knowledgeable and flexible guide who made the history of Wales and Conwy come alive for us. We toured Caernafon castle ourselves the previous day unguided and our teenage children were disengaged and uninterested. The contrast was unbelievable! Amanda spoke to all of us about Wales, Conwy and the history of Conwy castle in a way that invited questions and encouraged dialogue.

We had a lovely tour with Amanda. Our kids are quite young (5 and 7) but she adapted to keep them fully engaged for 1.5 hours around the castle.
It was really interesting and a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Peter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Amanda. It was a great start to our stay in Conwy to understand the history of the castle as well as points of interest in town. Amanda was very enthusiastic and informative. We would definitely recommend the time with Amanda, especially for the castle. We noted a few people saying there could be more info/guidance given at Conwy Castle.

Thank you Amanda!

My tour of Conwy Castle was far more interesting with my guide Amanda providing context, history and background for the structure itself and why it was built. My tour of the City and Castle was at a nice pace and made far richer and enjoyable eith my guide's obvious enthusiasm and depth of knowledge, A really nice day out!
