I've done ghost tours elsewhere, but they tend to be more funny than scary. This tour was actually pretty scary though, which was refreshing and a bit terrifying. Our host John took us through the history of the area near the cathedral, walking us around and stopping along the way to talk about accounts of strange/spooky ghost sightings and sounds... More

Our guide Jon was engaging and entertaining, an amazing story teller and scene setter. An alternative way to spend the evening, a perfect setting for a date with a difference and huge value for money! Will definitely be going on the other ghost walks in Cardiff.

Ok a slight over reaction but good fun with some great stories of Llandaff and its history. Not your typical gimmicky jump out and frighten you tour but the stories are very interesting apart from one I thought was a bit silly. I won't spoil it for the potential visitors though. The host was a good story teller though. Wish... More

Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you had such a good time even though you were cold. I am guessing but I suspect the one story which you did not like was the one "legend" we include, because it so old and established for the location. If you visit Cardiff in future I do hope that...

I throughly enjoyed the ghost walk. I learnt a lot about local history coupled with ghostly tales. I didn't dress warm enough and gave myself a headache from staring too hard into the dark shadows. But otherwise money well spent and you can have a drink locally afterwards, if you're not too worn out!!

Oh dear, sorry to hear that you found it too cold. We do our best to advise on the need to wrap up warm but people (including me at times) have often been surprised at just how cold it can get in places sometimes. I am glad that it didn't spoil your enjoyment though and I and the team are... More

Really enjoyed the walk on 28th Feb, if you fancy doing something different on a Friday night this is it! John was a great guide and kept everyone's interest, some interesting stories especially for my friend who lives in Llandaff and wasn't aware of half the history. I've already recommended it to my friends and I'm looking forward to doing... More

Dear Amy, thank you for a lovely and heartening review. I am delighted that you were drawn into the mood and atmosphere by John, and the added bonus that the ghost walk also revealed to some hidden aspects of Llandaff's elusive and turbulent history. I look forward to greeting you on the St Fagans Ghost Walk soon hopefully! James Cowan More

It's difficult to say what you expect from such an evening. The guide - John - did put a lot of effort in to describing events. However, in my opinion, he is not a natural storyteller and if he wants to engage his audience more, then he needs to structure what he says in a far more disciplined way. I... More

I am sorry that the ghost walk was not to your liking. I must admit I am a bit confused over your reference to a lack of structure. The walk has been carefully structured to build on the many experiences reported over the years. Where we do not have complete answers to some repeated incidents, we say so. The guides... More

The evening was a very interesting and enjoyable one. John (the guide) was exceptional in engaging the group, with stories of the past and present that brought a chill to my neck. With the surroundings depicting a scene from midsummer murders, combine with Johns role as the guide, it was difficult not to feel the chilly atmosphere.
