Great evening out if you fancy something different, the guide dressed like Dr Who, though don't think it was fancy dress for him :) made the trip enjoyable and interesting learning of the local history.

Our guide was John and Jeff was the steward, John told some great stories and kept us on edge! Would recommend this trip, would like to do the St Fagan's walk next. Last part of the trip was in the graveyard under the yew tree, just as I thought nothing was going to happen it did! I heard children giggling... More

Wrap up warm, it's cold and dark out there! What a great reminder of the history on our doorstep, and whether you're a 'believer' or not, you cannot fail to be impressed by your excellent host and an exciting collection of tales to guide you through the darkness. We had tour guide 'John' who was engaging and answered all our... More

It was cold and it was dark, in some places very dark and scary. John our Guide was really good. One story in particular sent a chill up my spine. We were a small group which I think is better.

My friend and I decided to do the ghost tour one Saturday evening after dinner in cardiff, as something totally different. Neither of us particularly believe in ghosts and hauntings, but thought this would be interesting regardless. We arrived and found the small parking area near the cathedral was packed so need up in the car park round the corner.... More

Just returned from the ghost walk and really enjoyed it! I must admit I'm a bit sceptical when it comes to ghosts but when you're wandering around in the dark trying to see things your mind does start to play tricks, making for a fun night out! Our guide John did a great job, was really enthusiastic and interesting and... More

This walk is completely fab! It takes you right into the history of the area, the cathedral and the people who lived there. Loads of local history, with the awesome extras of the local stories of spirits and hauntings. IN the winter months, I can only advise that you wrap up warm. It's all outside and it gets pretty chilly..... More

The location of this tour is great, the cathedral, graveyard and surrounding areas, being one of the oldest parts of the city, is steeped in history and really does have a unique atmosphere. It was a fantastic aspect of the tour! The tour guide was confident and friendly and was clearly passionate about what he spoke about. The local history... More

Thank you for your comments on the Llandaff Ghost Walk. I am sorry that you felt the guide was being disingenuous by planting ideas in people's heads. That is certainly not our intention. Perhaps occasionally on a 2 hour tour there can be instances when things can get inadvertently referred to "out of order". As for the references to Hollywood,... More
