  • Better things to spend your money on.... ice creams. rides on trains. food. parking tickets. your wife. etc. Thought the whole idea of getting on the coach driving into the mountain. was going to be a cool experience. However driving into the mountain approximately 20 seconds we stopped and got out to look at the generators for about 30 seconds then walking into a room with no windows to watch a video that went on for at least 40 minutes which we could have just watched on the surface. And as most probably better explained on YouTube. That was the end of the tour get back on the coach and come back out total waste of time and not cheap either. Be better spending the money on your own electricity bill.
  • Very disappointed. We had booked onto a tour as we passing through Llanberis. We arrived 15 mins before our tour was due start as requested, locked away our belongings in the lockers provided to be told the tour was now cancelled. In the mean time the tour before ours arrived back all happy and were saying how interesting it was?? We were offered a full refund but felt let down as we were unable to rebook for the same weekend as it was all full.
