What People Say
"I have been to Gower on numerous occasions mainly with family and never managed to see enough however; this time we opted to with Gower Tours who did what it says! My wife and I had a full day tour which took us around the whole peninsula and wow it was spectacular. There were many places I had never visited or even heard of beforehand. We experienced some real breathtaking views which was helped as it was a beautiful day.
Our highlight was the stop off in Rhossili which is our favourite place. We spent nearly 2 hours there which allowed us time for a cliff top walk and lunch.
Value for money we were not disappointed and have recommended to friends who are visiting later this year"
"A beautiful evening enjoyed with Gower Tours on their sunset trip. We were picked up by Swansea train station in a lovely and spacious VW Transporter then taken to our destination Rhossili.
The package included a packed lunch of bottle of bubbly which was welcomed when watching the fabulous sunset across the bay. If you opt for this trip maybe worth taking a blanket as the grass got a little damp late on!
The sunset at Rhossili is a must see if you are visiting the area or staying close by. This was surely a highlight of my holiday to South Wales."
"Had a trip round Gower today with Steve and Simon. Very friendly, professional service and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Great to have a local coastguard as a guide!"
"If you are visiting Gower then this is the only way you will see it all in one day. Public transport is few and far between and can become extremely crowded during school holiday time.
I came with a group of friends. We are an ageing walking group so a whistle stop tour was ideal and the opportunity to stretch out legs at numerous stops was enjoyable.
Our driver Simon was a character and really kept us entertained. He certainly knew the area like the back of his hand and provided us with many stories.
My only criticism if it can be of the day was that I wish we had more time to explore the north Gower coast.

"I have just returned from a half day, specifically tailored, tour. My guide Simon, very entertaining, knowledgeable and amenable. I saw parts of the Gower I only knew of, but had never visited, in the 42 years I've been coming here! Very reasonably priced. Worth every penny, and certainly worth doing. Simon was also able to recommend other folk that do other types of trips..so Gower Unearthed for walking and Gower Coast Adventures for a 'from the sea view' are getting contacted next! Thank you Simon and Steve for keeping up the contact and doing 'what it says in the blurb'!! Fabulous...now you've read this review..BOOK 'EM!!"
"Steve, one half of the family-run business, is the Gowers answer to Bear Grylls!!!!! Full of stories to keep you motivated, it's the only way to get up close & personal with this amazing coastline. I can't reccomend these guys highly enough. Passionate about the Gower, totally down to earth & Head of the local Coastguard (voluntarily) he's a true good guy and a brilliant Guide. Get yourself to Wales and give these guys a call. You won't regret it."
"My wife and myself went on a tour of the Gower Peninsula a couple of weeks ago.We were picked up from our hotel by Steve and then joined by Simon during the day. These guys are just very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do and we saw some incredible scenery during our whole day tour. Excellent value for money and most of all good banter. They do know this area like the back of their hand and told us all about not just the history but the present as well.
Thoroughly enjoyed our day
We wish you both the very best of luck for the future."
"I was with a group of about 15 today on a tour with Gower Tours. I can say with full confidence that this is one of the absolute best tour experiences I've had in my life. Steve, who drove the van I was in, was charming and *extremely* knowledgeable about the area. He grew up in the area and his love for the place and the people shines through with every story he tells. The place itself is absolutely gorgeous, but the local stories and connections that our guide shared with us really tipped the scales. We drove the coast and stopped to explore and take photographs at several points. Worms Head was absolutely STUNNING. We also had an incredible experience at Gower Salt Marsh Lamb. The grounds were unbelievable, the owners friendly, and the lamb burgers were a thoughtful and delightful addition. On the way back toward Swansea (where we are staying) we stopped for a final panoramic look at the peninsula and were absolutely charmed when some of the wild horses who roam the area came right up to us and let us interact with them.
The ride was comfortable, the hosts were exceptional, and you *definitely* want to take this tour. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
"Brilliant tour with our very kind, friendly and knowledgeable guide, Steve. Prices are more than reasonable for the amount that you get to see and do and the sites are downright breathtaking.
If you are in the area, this is a tour that you don't want to miss, be you a local, traveler, or tourist."
Gower Tours is the ONLY way to see The Gower. Steve and Simon made our trip something we will never forget. They were incredibly kind and knowledgeable and immediately made us feel safe and comfortable. We miss them already!!!
