Nigel took us on a wonderful stroll around Cardiff, it is all very compact so not too much walking. He tells the history of Cardiff with passion. Our small group learnt a lot and got some good inside knowledge on where to get the best Welsh cakes.

Nice walking tour with a good history of Cardiff. The walk is not strenuous and takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes. A good walk to do in Cardiff.

Nigel was a really nice guide, he told us a lot about history and was always happy to explain some more facts when I asked him about it. The time was not too short and not too long and we saw some really nice places in the city. Nigel is a really good storyteller and it's enjoyable to listen to... More

Thanks to my friendly and knowledgeable guide, I was able to learn some interesting facts about the city. The National Museum, City Hall, University, Bute Park, Cardiff Castle -- each has its own unique story and history to tell, and Nigel the guide gave me an insight into it with a fascinating sense of humour!

A fascinating tour that provides real insight into the history and culture of Cardiff. The tour combines a broad view of Cardiff's past, from Roman to the present, with lots of little vignettes about the characters and events that have shaped the city. The guide was very personable and encouraged questions and discussion throughout. It was the clear highlight of... More
