Visited Cardiff for a long weekend, was certainly not disappointed. Was plenty to see and do and everything within walking distance. Loads of shops, pubs and restaurants - was difficult to make a decision on where to eat. People are friendly too. Got extremely busy on a Saturday night and got a little messy, but most places do over the... More

We booked online before the tour and met our guide. He was very friendly and clearly knowledgeable about the city and area. We asked lots of questions and he was able to give great answers to all of them - he clearly knew a lot about the history. The tour gives a great introduction to Cardiff and lasts just under...

This is a great way to get a sense of Cardiff , both past and current. Nigel does a great presentation. He is knowledgable and enthusiastic about his topic. He gave some great advice about getting last minute tickets for the Rugby and except for Wales losing it was a great experience. The tour is very reasonably priced and departure... More

Thanks for a great review and I am glad that you enjoyed the Essential Cardiff Walking Tour. I hope you managed to see rugby match; it was a pity that Wales didn't play better. More

In a walkable city with a rich and ancient history you need context, orientation and insight. Nigel delivers with great good humour, deep knowledge and a passion for his hometown. The 1.5 hour tour was VERY reasonably priced and worth every minute.

A very mixed group of twenty somethings (and over!), teens and tinies were informed and entertained by our excellent guide, Nigel. He really brought the history of Cardiff to life and was able to answer all questions, even the odd ones! A jam packed two hours with recommendations for lunch and other attractions if requested. This is an essential part... More

We took a PRIVATE tour with Nigel a few weeks ago.. I am so incredibly grateful for the knowledge he so generously shared with us as we meandered all over and through Cardiff! We were so taken by the ANCIENT history and the beautiful stories that Nigel shared with us in passionate detail that, when we were finished, we looked... More

This is an excellent walking tour of Cardiff led by Nigel whose knowledge of and passion for the city is evident. He uses the city's main buildings and points of interest as a backdrop to a brief history of Wales. This is a great tour for a first visit to Cardiff. The guide is attentive to the interests of the... More

What else could you ask for in a tour guide?! Nigel was a wonderful ambassador for Cardiff. He had a knack for storytelling AND was able to answer all of our questions. After the tour, when we asked for a lunch recommendation, he steered us in the right direction. Highly recommended! We love supporting local guides.
