This was our first time with a private guide. Noel Clawson made us want to travel this way more often. He was pleasant, knowledgeable,and always gave us some alone time every day to enjoy places on our own. Wales was amazing--scenery on the coast was jaw dropping, Mt. Snowdon breath taking, accomodations great, people welcoming. Go!

Though it was a foggy and rainy, I had a great day. Noel tailored my trip in the hopes that when we hiked in Brecon Beacons later, it would be clearer. Noel was very knowledgeable about Wales and its history. Our first stop was Caerphilly Castle, my first of many castle visits in Wales. I will always remember the leaning... More

This is the second time Rich and I have toured with Noel. When we decided we were going to visit Wales again there was no question that we would contact Noel to do the N Wales three day tour. We learned a lot about the history and geology of the area while having a very nice time. We did a... More

SWPT looked after arranging a trip to Treorchy to see the male choir. We were picked up on time and given a very fine experience by Mark and James. Thanks to Michelle and Noel and to Mark and James. For a lovely evening

In 2015, SWPT arranged and excellent tour to the hometown of one of my ancestors, who had emigrated from Newtown Wales. When my cousin and I were in London two years earlier, we had tried to go there with no success. This year when we visited Bath, we discovered SWPT--Noel and Michelle's company--who provided excellent advice about planning the visit... More

We toured Wales for six days with South Wales Personal Tours. Owner/guide Noel is one of the finest guides we have ever had over years of travels. He combines mastery of every aspect of his country with sensitivity to his clients, flexibility and a good sense of humor. Our own preference was to avoid the cities and stick to country... More

This was our first trip to Wales and really wanted to see everything with no idea of what that meant. From the first email, Michelle was responsive and a delight to work with. We arrived to Heathrow an hour early and cleared immigration and customs in record time, well before our flights original arrival time, but there was Noel waiting... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and our time in Wales, not only because of the character and culture of the country, but because of the character and insights of Noel. Extremely knowable of attractions, food, history, and more, his calm and genial demeanor made the days that much better and more enjoyable. As a mother traveling with her young son... More

We were lucky to find SWPT on the internet just before we left Finland. Despite the short notice our friendly guide, Noel, managed to arrange us a wonderful day tour to Caerphilly Castle, Brecon Beacons National Park, Hay-on Wye and the Brecon Canal. Noel picked us up in Mumbles, which was a very comfortable start for the day. We enjoyed... More
