Cardiff on Foot specialises in walking tours around Wales's greatest city. We offer a variety of walking tours that will show you our rich city life, both past and present. Cardiff has a fascinating history going back 2000 years. Our Cardiff walking tours can introduce you to Romans, Welsh princes, Norman lords, martyrs, pirates and revolutionaries, marquesses, and of course King Coal. We like to keep our groups as small as possible and we believe that a Cardiff walking tour in the company of a knowledgeable local is the best way to discover our beautiful capital city. « less

A great tour! We organised an afternoon tour with Nigel as part of a University field trip to explore the Bay and its history. Extremely informative and we covered so much in the time we had. Also v flexible to fit in what ever you are most interested in. Thoroughly recommend!

Thanks for a great review and It is good to see that you enjoyed the Cardiff Bay Ramble. There is so much to see in that part of Cardiff and I always try to accommodate the interests of my customers. More

Well worth joining this tour. The guide knew his route well & gave a clear informative talk as we walked around numerous old & new buildings in the Bay. He had so much to tell but adjusted it to the needs of the group.

I am very glad that you enjoyed the Cardiff Bay Ramble. This one of my favourite walking tours, taking in the old docks, modern waterfront and the old financial centre of Mount Stuart Square. Thanks for a great review. More

Really interesting and insightful tour... Went at our pace and tailored individually to our group with an unscheduled tea and cake stop... Have to admit I unwittingly booked the same your I had done the year before and can honestly say it was even better... Our tour guide was so interesting and utterly endearing. Lovely way to spend a morning...

Thanks for a great review and I am very glad that you enjoyed both your walking tour and your visit to Cardiff. You are not alone in thinking that Cardiff is "great" city; a recent survey found that 99% of visitors would definitely or probably recommend the city to others! I look forward to seeing you again.

Just moved to the Cardiff area and found the tour on Amazon. I thoroughly enjoyed the stroll around Cardiff and the history. Our tourguide brought the past to life and I shall be booking the Fear and Loathing tour as soon as my daughter has time to do it. I very much recommend doing the Cardiff City Stroll.

Nigel, the guide, was brilliant; he was very well informed about all the places we visited and since there were two Australians in the group, he pointed out Australian connections with Cardiff, which were most...

What a great review! Thanks and I am very pleased that you enjoyed the City Stroll walking tour. A combination of visitors and locals always works well and I think that mixing the big history stories with quirky local detail is the best way to describe Cardiff. You can come again! More

We thoroughly enjoyed finding out more about our own city. Nigel was interesting, informative and seemed to be able to answer all questions anyone asked. The pace of the walk was about right, and we booked a second walk as soon as we got back from the first. Already planning when we can fit in the Cardiff Bay walk. I... More

Went on the Fear and Loathing in Cardiff and the Cardiff City Stroll tours. Both were extremely informative and interesting. Nigel led both of the tours I took- I would definitely recommend him as a guide!
