We welcome group bookings, and will work with you to tailor tours that fit in with your plans and suit your interests.
All of our guides are local volunteers who enjoy bringing the stories of Hay to life, many of which can be uncovered just by walking along the main streets of the town.
The project received start-up support from Brecon Beacons National Park, via the Sustainable Development Fund and Hay Chamber of Commerce. We are endorsed by various local organisations including Hay Tourist Group, Hay Tourist Information Bureau, Hay Town Council and Hay Chamber of Trade. Hay On Wye Tours also work in partnership with Hay Castle Trust to offer tours of Hay Castle.
Hay On Wye Tours is a community enterprise and all profits are put back into the organisation to cover its costs and ensure future sustainability.
