Our exclusive excursion takes us to see the sights such as Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Ogwen Valley in Snowdonia and a lunch stop in Conwy (own cost) with the castle as your back drop before finishing our day we drive past Llandudno to see the twinkling lights over the town!
Once back at the hotel dinner is served in the hotel restaurant and is followed by entertainment.
On Christmas Day we will have an opportunity to join a morning walking tour of Chester showcasing the more ‘christmassy’ side of this city. It is then time for the main event where we sit down to enjoy our Christmas Day lunch with all the trimmings!

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £10. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
