Our day started off an absolute mess. Our cruise ship anchored, we passengers were ferried to Holyhead Marina, and at... every turn we were met with failure for our vacation. No shops to really speak of were located at the marina— we needed to go into town— and the couple stores that were there (and open) were a marina goods store and a food + beverage restaurant. The three taxis we did find at the marina were two vans already booked for a large party and one taxi that refused our services so he could accept the request of a man that interrupted us and threw a fit for the taxi.We walked all over the town square, begging a taxi service for a ride and offered to pay double or to pay for the entire day, and we were refused. We finally went back to the marina, and the two vans from hours earlier were still there— after waiting for a party that never showed. We offered to pay the driver for a day’s service since their party never showed up. One of the van drivers recognized us from two hours before when we’d asked him if he could take us but had to decline for the party. So he called his boss to report the time they’d been waiting for the no-show party, and he accepted our offer for a private drive and tour for the next several hours.This incredible man is Vernon with PR Taxis. Born and raised for 52 years in Wales.Vernon took us ALL OVER Wales, showing us areas frequented by tourists but taking us to places no bus or coach would dare attempt. We saw sights so magnificent it took my breath away. We enjoyed the picturesque landscapes of rolling hills and mountain faces, Ogwen trail and Snowdonia National Park, streams and waterfalls and lakes, “The Lonely Tree,” countless sheep, castle ruins, ancient cemeteries (though we did not stop to walk them), the world’s first suspension bridge (Menai) and Britannia bridge, Caernarfon Castle, and a replica of the Tyn-y-Coed horse carriage that traveled the 250 miles or so from Holyhead to London many centuries ago.Out of all the days and excursions we’ve had during this trip— heck, out of ALL the trips and adventures we’ve had, ever!— no others even come close to the wonderful time and experiences we shared with Vernon today.When we visit Wales again— because we will be back to visit— we most certainly will contact Vernon to drive for us. It was an absolute pleasure, and we look forward to doing it again.Diolch!read more
1st class service, booked a number of advance long journeys around a trip to NW Wales and also needed to re schedule... one at short notice due to ill health. Easy arrangements via email and advance deposit online. Professional polite drivers, all on time. Highly recommend. Thank you all office and drivers for your helpread more
Excellent service. I climbed Mount Snowdon and because of the timescale I would have missed my last bus back to my... place of stay..I looked up this company a couple of days prior. I spoke to a lovely gentleman and he was really professional. I called the company once again when I arrived at Snowdon to pre-book and thankfully the gentleman answered. He passed my details to a young lady who booked me in. She also was very professional with my enquiries.They were so helpful and I definitely would use their services again when I am up there again and if I need to. Thank you...🤗I think the guys name was Brandon...I think. I used the service on 21:05:2022. Thanks again.:) Guys.read more

We were a group of 9 lads doing the welsh 3000s and used PR taxis over three full days. This included pick ups and drop... offs from each mountain range, evening trips from hostel and travel to snowdonia from Manchester and Leeds at the start and end of our weekend trip. The service was 1st class, we were able to move times and plans around, always on time and we had a good laugh along the wayMy advice for trips to the snowdonia, especially in groups. Keep the car at home/or park at a local transport hub / train station and use these services. It’s very good value and hassle free and you feel better for not adding to the parking problems in the area.read more
We recently completed the Welsh 3000 and Paul and his team were our drivers over the full three days. Picking us up and... dropping us back off in Manchester.They were always on time and really flexible when we needed to move pick up and drop off times around.Parking is a nightmare in Snowdonia so they were life savers abs top lads.read more
I used PR Taxi’s twice whilst on a weeks holiday in Caernarfon. The first where I requested transport for 10. The vans... arrived on time for both the outward and return journeys. Not only did we have punctual service but a guided commentary of the local area. I also booked another taxi for 2 later on in the week and Vernon took us to the restaurant and back. Not only a punctual service but wonderful chat. Would absolutely recommend PR Tax’s if you are in the area!read more
Very hard to put into words what a fantastic experience we’ve had with PR taxis. We had a very busy schedule heading to... different Zip Worlds, Snowdon, Betws-y-coed, Restaurants & our hotel Hilton Snowdonia. Each time we were promptly picked up on schedule, very friendly drivers, flexible when we needed changes and excellent value. Especially Paul who was so friendly in the taxis, reassuring when we had a small issue with our deposit not going through and just an all round great guy and company. Highly recommended you can’t go wrong if you come to the area and use them.read more
Fantastic drivers. I fell off my bike at around midnight after a full days running on the paddy Buckley round, and had... bad injuries all over my knees. I also had a puncture that I was in no fit state to try to fix. After the car that witnessed me falling off drove by leaving me for dead, one of the PR taxi drivers came by and picked me up. Drove me to the campsite I was staying at, absolute legend as I would have been in a very bad way otherwise. Thank you to the driver which name I forget, but will always remember that night's rescue! Cheers!read more

What an amazing company. I was stuck in Wales after my car broke down. Vernon, the driver was so lovely and friendly... our journey back to Milton Keynes, taking 5 hrs was a dream. He arrived 20 mins after booking and made sure we knew what was happening all the way through.I even took a card so I can use them next time we’re in Snowdon, hopefully for more social reasons.Never felt so safe and well looked after with any other taxi companyThanks again to Paul but especially Vernon 🤩read more
