Lovely tour on a sunny day

Our motivated and very lovely tour guide showed us the "must see spots" and gave us a good impression of the Welsh capital. It was a lovely start into a nice weekend in Wales.

Nigel is funny and informative. I really enjoyed the walking tour. He has lots of fun stories and history to share, and gives good suggestions for other trips/journeys outside Cardiff as well. At six pounds per person, a great bargain. I highly recommend this to you. Book ahead if you want to be sure you get on a tour.

I really enjoy city breaks and walking tours are a great way to get to know a city better and build an appreciation for what it has to offer. For the Cardiff on Foot tour, I thought Nigel did a great job, despite the rain, and even came prepared with spare umbrellas. Very informative and lovely tour.

My wife and I did the walking tour on the water front. We found it very good. Take an umbrella and a comfy pear of shoes.

I had a great time on the tour, even though the day started off a little wet. Nigel was friendly and very informative, even tailoring his commentary about Cardiff to address topics the group was interested in. He made me feel very at ease and had some great recommendations for other things to do in the city. Thanks Nigel!

He has a clear and distinct way of talking so that you could listen to him forever. The tour lasted 1 3/4 hours and covered about 1,5 miles but it felt very short. Contentwise, Nigel gave us...

It was a fantastic tour. Nigel certainly was very knowledgeable. We saw sights we probably wouldn't have seen if we we're doing on our own. Would highly recommend it.

We had a great time doing this walking tour. It was just the right distance and length of time and Nigel was entertaining and kept us engaged the whole time. History which can sometimes be a bit dull got a whole new life and we learned some funny little facts here and there. Would definitely recommend as a fun, different... More

This tour with Nigel was the perfect introduction to Cardiff. We walked around the major sites while he presented us with information about the city's past. The weather was beautiful and he was happy to take his time and to chat with us. A definite recommendation!
