Brecon Beacons Tours

Brecon Beacons Tours offers sightseeing tours, guided walks and holidays in the Brecon Beacons National Park of Wales and surrounding areas.

<p>After a few weeks away leading GeoWorld Travel tours in Scotland I was back in #BreconBeacons today and took 2 Americans on our ‘Heart of the Park and #Waterfall Country’ tour in the #fforestfawrgeopark. The weather was great even if the recent lack of rain left the waterfalls looking a little empty. #visitwales (at Brecon Beacons National Park)</p>

<p>A great 6th day on our Geology of #Wales trip. Our first stop in the #Preseli mountains of the #Pembrokeshire Coast #NationalPark was the quarry of the #Stonehenge bluestones. We then went to #PentreIfan burial chamber, followed by Rosebush quarry from where the roof of the #HousesofParliment came from. We then went to #Abereiddy found #graptolites and went to the Blue Lagoon. We had lunch in #stdavidscathedral Next stop was #Portyrhaw discovery site of #ParadoxidesDavidis #trilobite. Finally we checked out amazing #folds #faults and #ironstones  in the  #Carboniferous coal measure of #BroadHaven (at Pembrokeshire Coast National Park)</p>
