We went on the Llandaff tour yesterday evening and it didn't disappoint! We opted for the Twilight Supper. The price for a two course meal in Mulberry Street along with the ghost walk was an absolute bargain! The walk was very interesting but also very spooky. We were definitely freaked by the end. Each one of us hearing, feeling and... More

I guess I am not much of a believer in the supernatural since everyone else found this to be amazing. I accompanied friends on this on a visit to Cardiff. It was too over the top - the storytelling was too over the top. It did in fact start off strong with the history of the cathedral, which interested me... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy the experience. We try hard to deliver the stories of ghosts as faithfully as they have been reported, but it is a ghost walk after all, not a history tour, so the style of delivery has to reflect that, and feed the imagination...

So long as the weather is on your side (as the walk is outdoors) then it's one of the best tours in the city.. Bring wellies or boots for the field if it's been raining tho.. Jim is the best storyteller Cardiff has to offer.. 👍

Thank you so much for such kind words. I am so grateful that you enjoy the way I have developed this ghost walk. I hope in future, now that there is more than one guide, that you will find the standards equally high, regardless of the guide, something we have worked hard to maintain. Thank you for taking the trouble... More

Me and my friends went on the ghost tour and it was amazing, we highly recommend it, it was John Hutch's first time taking the tour and he did a fab job, he reminded us of Doctor Who and it was very fun, we got freaked out and we couldn't stop taking about it after, thank you very much and... More

Dear Shea thank you so much for your review. I am delighted you enjoyed the experience (even better that your boyfriend actually experienced some paranormal phenomena!). To give John credit where due, he was the one leading the entire walk for the first time that night (I was the steward at the back that night!). I am delighted that you... More

This 'Ghost Walk' was a real hoot - we went in the winter so it was cold and very dark which I imagine is the best time to go. Very interesting and engaging, not sure how much of the storytelling was based on fact, but it didn't matter - recommend this to anybody visiting Cardiff or even Cardiff residents!

Thank you so much for such a positive review! I am glad you enjoyed the walk. The stories are all based on fact - we try to get the balance right in their presentation to make them engaging but not undermine their credibility and everything is told faithfully, and as reported. Thank you once again for taking the time to... More

I recently booked this as I was back as I was back in my home city with my teenage son, while meeting up with friends also visiting Cardiff. We have tried a couple of times to try and do the walk, it was either full or dates didn't work. So with two teenagers who happened to mention a few dozen... More

Dear Wendy. Thank you so much for such a great review. I am delighted that you enjoyed the way John and I told the stories, which seem to have had just the right effect. Is Llandaff really haunted? Who knows! It certainly can have a very powerful atmosphere, and I am glad that the storytelling that night helped you all... More

This walk was a great night out. Ending in an old cemetery in the dark made for a spooky experience where your mind and eyes definitely start playing tricks on you! The two guys running the walk were awesome in the way that they shared the stories of the past. The Llandaff cathedral is beautiful to see at night too!... More

I went on the ghost walk with my daughter who is 16 and my son who is 14, trying to get my son enthusiastic about anything other than his x box is a feat in itself. The 2 guides that took us around were brilliant, building up the atmosphere, we were jumping at the slightest noise. Both of the kids... More
