I’m Mark Cole and I am passionate about West Wales - the land of my birth, my ancestry and of my ‘today’ and I’m keen to extol its many virtues to those who wish to indulge in its beauty and history!
Born and raised in Pembrokeshire, educated in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion and now living on the cusp of all three in Cardigan, I gained a BA and MA in History in Aberystwyth University. After a life of working in public facing roles, with regular interactions with local and national media, I have returned to my ‘first loves’ - history and communication!
I am an officially accredited ‘Green Badge’ tourist guide for South West Wales with the Wales Official Tourist Guides Association - the only guides officially recognised by Visit Wales and Welsh Government.
Fully bilingual, I love expressing my enthusiasm and using my skills to provide visitors with entertaining and enlightening guided tours in either English or Welsh.
Along with my wife Alyson, we will look after you and guide you safely around west Wales. So whether you want to explore our highlights or find our hidden gems, or delve into your own past by tracing the footsteps of your ancestors, please contact us here with your own unique requests, to allow us to help you to do so!
We look forward to hearing from you!
