About

Dragon Tours specialises in guided tours of Wales for individuals, couples and small groups.

The key to the Dragon Tour experience is flexibility with personally planned itineraries and services to meet your individual needs along with packaged options to suit all budgets.

Dragon Tours is owned and operated by Dr Mike Davies, a published historian and specialist in Welsh history and culture – his books include the Last King of Wales.

Mike was born, raised and continues to live in Wales. He has taught at the University of Wales and is able to provide a unique insight into the ancient land of his birth.

Mike started offering tours shortly after completing his first degree at Trinity College Carmarthen in 1990.

He offered a tour service during the summer months while studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Swansea University, a Masters in medieval Welsh history at Cardiff University and a PhD in medieval history at the University of Wales, Newport.

He completed his studies in 2000 and started offering guided tours of Wales as a full-time concern thereafter.

Mike is personally involved in the driver-guiding and loves to share his knowledge of Wales’ incredible history with his guests.

He has over 20 years of experience of guiding people in Wales.

Our philosophy is to provide tours that feel as though you’re being taken around by a family friend in a very relaxed and enjoyable way.

We are very flexible and do our utmost to ensure that all requests are met.

We specialise in tailor-made, custom tours and also have some packaged options for consideration.

We can arrange accommodation at a whole range of excellent properties to suit all preferences and budgets.

  1. We took the 14 day tour with Mike. What an experience. Mike certainly went out of his way to help make our accommodation’s just perfect. Until we looked at the map the Mike made we didn’t realize how far and many place we visited in Wales. We meet Mike’s lovely family and even saw his home. All the castles and beautiful places. With Mike vast knowledge it made everything come together like a giant storybook. We went on our adventure July 2016 and everyday pictures come up on our desktops and different PC’s throughout the house to bring back the great memories that we have. Would travel again with Mike. Best wishes to any of you travelers that take the Dragon adventures. Thanks again Barney & JJ. also our traveling mate Francis!
