When my friend and I realised it was going to be a full moon on a Friday the 13th we decided we wanted to do something different and spooky. We found the Llandaff walk online and thought we would try it out. We both enjoyed ourselves a lot and definitely experienced things that neither of us could fully explain. The... More

We went on the full moon Llandaf ghost walk which started at 11.00pm and in true welsh form it was raining, this did not spoil the atmosphere though as we were made aware that water can help enable paranormal activity. We walked through the Cathedral grounds and surrounding areas, stopping every once in a while listenening to the ghost stories,... More

Dear Rhiannon, thank you so much for your great review. I'm glad you had such a good atmospheric and spooky time, even if the moon only made a brief appearance in the graveyard! If you found Llandaff spooky I am confident that you will love Margam! See you there in November! Jim Cowan More

While visiting Britain, we made a special trip to Cardiff for this ghost walk. We had the pre-walk dinner, which was quite excellent, and the tour exceeded our expectations. Well worth the trip!!

Hi Suzanne, many thanks for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you and Vic and taking you on the walk. It was a great summer evening's walk with a good group, deep twilight and lots of atmosphere. I'm so glad it exceeded your expectations. Best wishes, Jim More

I've been on this tour in Llandaff twice, once as a hen party group and once with friends as part of a mixed group. Both visits were brilliant, really interesting history as well as the atmospheric ghost stories! Very professional and highly recommended for Cardiffians and visitors alike.

Ours was an atmospheric evening in the dark further enhanced by a river mist. We were guided along the 'path of the past' besides the river Taff and through the churchyard attached to Llandaff Cathedral. Some wonderful story telling explained who may still be seen haunting the area and the reason for the bench in the path wall (it was... More

My friend and I were visiting Cardiff for the weekend and I had come across this tour online. Having been on a couple of ghost tours before in Edinburgh I thought it would be a lot of fun and a different way to spend an evening. I am not a believer in the paranormal but I have a very overactive... More

Thank you for your review. It is great to read that you enjoyed your ghost walk so much even if, as you say, you do not believe in ghosts. I am glad you felt the right balance of history and atmospheric ghost stories - the atmosphere can rattle the hardiest person - I get scared sometimes when I am guiding!... More
