Start Times

Please note: we aim to leave promptly at the given start time. We suggest you aim to arrive a few minutes early to ensure tours can leave on time.


All the Hay Tours walks are designed to be strolls around the streets of Hay and immediate environs. These are not hikes, so are suitable to all ages and fitness levels. 

Children welcome if accompanied by an adult. Dogs welcome too, if kept on a lead.

The tours will go ahead in poor weather, unless conditions are exceptionally adverse.

Tour guides reserve the right to turn latecomers or those without an advance booking away.
