Kevin Bate, founder South Wales GeoTours

"Geo Tours is a really good day out with an experienced and well-versed Geologist. Kevin really knows his stuff and can answer all yours questions. The day I spent with him I thoroughly enjoyed and I learnt so so much. I would recommend a day out with Kevin to any one who has an interest in geology or just wants to know more about their local area. Kevin caters well for all ages and welcomes anyone from 0-400 million years old" Atlantic College staff member, April 2019

“Wondering what do to with the kids during the school holiday? For a fascinating day out we, that is me and my two primary school palaeontologists, went searching for dinosaurs! Undeterred by the rain and the wind the kids were totally engrossed with the tour so ably led by Kevin. With his wealth of knowledge and experience Kevin pointed-out the fossilised dinosaur footprints and brought them to life with his descriptions of how they were made and shared in the kids, and my, excitement of finding “our own” dinosaur footprints and imagining the landscape alive with beasts. A grand day out!” Father of two, December 2018
