Description: Do something different today. Truly the best way to explore this beautiful...
Do something different today. Truly the best way to explore this beautiful young city is by bike. Cardiff Cycle Tours wants to give you a unique experience of time and place, setting a leisurely bike ride within a historical context. This is a fascinating city, reflecting in many ways the history and future of Wales. We think Cardiff is rapidly becoming a great cycling city, and we want you to have a good time for a couple of hours.What can you expect to discover? We pass all the major attractions in Cardiff of course, but also discover some hidden spots in Bute street, Grangetown, by the old docks… We guide you from the Wales Millennium Centre for our standard tours, the Bute tour going from the Bay to the centre and back, and our Bay tour, taking in the stunning views of this rapidly developing capital. See our website for more details.

A friend of mine visited me from Scotland and we decided that joining a cycle tour of Cardiff would be a good way for him see the city. With us was another local from Cardiff, so it is a testament to Pol’s skills as a tour guide that despite having people that have lived in the city for years, he... More

We rang to ask about a group tour. It wasn't running that morning so we hired 2 bikes without a tour. Great value at £10 per bike from 10am until 2pm. It was easy enough to find the bike hire and a pleasant walk from the town centre (about 5-10 minutes from the castle). The hire shop is in a... More

The cycle tour is the ideal way to discover Cardiff bay.The route is completely flat which makes it a relax trip and the bikes are comfortable. During the three hour trip, we stopped at spots we would've never seen otherwise and got a really nice view from the other side of the bay.Pol, the tour guide is a very friendly... More

A very complete tour, worth every penny. Saw and learned amazing things. A must-do activity when in Cardiff, whilst guided by a very companionable guide!

I went on a tour of Cardiff in July 2014. It was a great time, with my very friendly tour leader. It was a fantastic way to learn about the city's history from a fun perspective. The bike was very comfortable, and the route flat. The route took us through a number of different areas related to the coal industry,... More

Unlike some of the others that have reviewed Cardiff Cycle Tours I did not go on an organized tour. However, you can also rent a bicycle for a 1/2 or full day and it is definitely worth it if you want to get some exercise and see the city or beyond. Cardiff is a very flat city so the cycling...

Having spent 3 years in Cardiff as students, we thought we knew Cardiff well - although it had been some time ago. How wrong we were! Pol took us to lots of areas we hadn't even seen - let alone knew anything about. Who knew that the first £1m cheque was signed in Cardiff! The bikes are great and Pol... More

We went on the 3 hr Cardiff bay tour with Pol. It was relaxed and interesting with Pol telling us all sorts of interesting things about Cardiff. The bikes were well maintained and the majority of the ride was off road. I would recommend it to any one.

We're holidaying in Wales for the week with a 1yo daughter. We LOVED Pol's tour Cardiff. The bikes are great, he had a great, safe seat and helmet for my daughter (even if she refused to wear it after an hour or so) and we could leave our buggy behind in a locked unit which was really good for us...
