Owner description: If you want to discover Cardiff and enjoy a good walk then look no further than our Cardiff walking tours. 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.

Our guide Nigel knew his stuff when we went on two walks this week. He enthusiastically imparted interesting facts and brought historical events to life in streets we walk regularly and don't realise what stories they contain. Easy pace and with good humour, our appreciation of Cardiff and its history was enhanced.

My girlfriend bought me the essential Cardiff tour for my birthday and it was a fantastic morning out. Nigel is brilliant. He is very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable. We are both from the South Wales area, and I have a respectable knowledge of local history, but Nigel kept the interesting and surprising facts and stories flowing. We are definitely booking...

We are local to Cardiff and did the walking tour with my (non-local) parents. We did the "Cardiff City Tour" which was very interesting and informitive. Nigel was enthusiastic and knowlegable throughout the tour. I'd recommend this tour to locals and visitors as we learnt loads! Many thanks Nigel - we will be doing the "Cardiff Bay" tour next time!

Despite the miserable weather we thoroughly enjoyed todays tour. Nigel our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and humourous. We learnt many new facts even though we are from Pontypridd. The Fear and Loathing tour is next on our list.

My wife and I were on a long weekend break to Cardiff and booked a "City Walk" tour on 31st October. Our Guide was Nigel Bevan and he brought the history of Cardiff alive for us in a really informative way and took us to places we could easily have missed. His knowledge is extensive and answered all our questions... More

Thank you for a great review and I am delighted that you enjoyed the City Stroll walking tour. This is a good introduction to the city and I try to combine the main city centre sights with some less obvious places of interest. I am glad that you approved and I hope to see you again. More

What made my experience of this walking tour so fantastic was our excellent and knowledgable guide Nigel. He answered every question thrown at him and gave an interesting account of the history of the wall surrounding Cardiff. I can honestly say I learnt more of this tour than I've learnt on any other walking tour I've done in the UK.

We did both the City and Docks walk and learned so much more than if we had wandered around on our own. We saw places we would otherwise have missed and heard the history of the place and it's past inhabitants and masters that we didn't have the time to read about. Well worth the time and money. Thank you... More

This was a very informative tour around the Cardiff Bay. Nigel told us a lot about the history of it being the original Cardiff Docks. We purchased the tour through Groupon and the meeting point on our voucher did not tie up with the actual meeting point. Luckil,y Nigel our tour leader had warned us of this in advance and... More

Thanks for a great review and I am very glad that you enjoyed the Cardiff Bay Ramble. Apologies for the glitch about the meeting place. I make a point of trying to personally confirm the meeting place for each walking tour, which fortunately worked on this occasion. More

We have lived in Cardiff all our 61 year lives and still learnt lots of great information when on this amazing walking tour with Nigel Bevan.

I am very pleased to see that you enjoyed the City Stroll walking tour around the city centre, despite the rain. And did it rain!

Nigel has a natural style of explaining the current landmarks and history on the Cardiff Bay Walk. Very responsive to questions and welcomes comments from the walkers on their past experiences of Cardiff Bay. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with Cardiff on Foot.
