Meet your guide - Andrew
Hello I’m Andrew. I’ve been involved with Real Wales Tours since the early days, and I’m excited to be joining full time as a guide from the summer of 2019. As well as guiding on sightseeing group tours and personalised tours, I’ll be leading and developing the small group cycling tours which are new to Real Wales Tours this year.
I moved to South Wales at the age of four, and grew up in the countryside just outside of Cardiff. I’ve always enjoyed being outdoors and making the most of the amazing playground we have here in Wales.
I love to travel and have spent time in Asia, Central & South America, and Australia & New Zealand, as well as many places in Europe. I love meeting new people and making connections across all different cultures, and I love to try my hand at any adventure activity that is on offer. I’m also always keen to try the local food, the stranger the better!
Cycling is one of my main passions and I recently took part in the Lands End to John O’Groats cycle event, riding 1,000 miles from the furthest south-west tip of England to the furthest point north on mainland Scotland. I also love to take part in triathlons here in Wales, which have taken me to some amazing parts of the country; abandoned slate quarries in Snowdonia, sand dunes on the Island of Anglesey, and fishing harbours in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
My favourite thing about Wales is the huge variety of places to see and things to do in such a small country, with history around every corner. We have mountain ranges, miles of varied coastline, hundreds of castles, and historic towns and cities.
I look forward to exploring with you on a tour soon!
