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

This is a superb walking tour that allows you to get deep into the heart of the city and its history. It shows you the iconic buildings of Cardiff but also gives you the background by way of great storytelling. Our guide was fantastic with a deep knowledge of the city. I recommend it to everyone visiting Cardiff

I went on the City Stroll with my husband and we both really enjoyed it. We have been to Cardiff many times but a walking tour is an excellent way to find out more about all the places you pass by without really knowing their history. We even found a couple of places we hadn't been to before. The tour... More

The centre of Cardiff is so lovely, just a beautiful city. My family are from Swansea, which I love. But I much prefer the feel of Cardiff, has a bit of the old amongst the new.

Even though we have lived just outside Cardiff for a few years, we learnt so many new things about the city from our Cardiff on Foot tour! Nigel, our tour guide, has a very in-depth knowledge of Cardiff and presented it in a fascinating way as we walked around Cardiff. Would thoroughly recommend any of his tours, and hope to... More

Nigel is an outstanding guide, a special one. He gives you so many relevant facts and stories about Cardiff, and all of them are fascinating. And jokes! His jokes! I had a good laugh on both tours he ran. Highly recommended! Fairly cheap and definitely worth trying!

I was amazed by Nigel. He has the power to make you travel back in the time with all the details he gives about Cardiff History and events. He is really flexible and original: I traveled with my 5 year french speaking niece and he found solutions and adapted the tour to avoid her to be too bored. For example,... More

I moved to Cardiff from America over a year ago and knew very little about this new city of mine. A friend of mine came to visit, so I thought this tour might be a good introduction for us both. I was not disappointed! Nigel, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and mixed fact with humor in a very accessible... More

I brought a coach of people to Cardiff from London on one of the day trips events I regularly organise. We split the group in two. The tour guide Nigel took one group and Diane the other (they are a husband and wife team who run Cardiff on Foot). Both guides were exceptional. I was in the group with Nigel... More

What a lovely way to spend a couple of hours in a lovely city. Myself and my wife have lived near Cardiff for about 20 years but this tour made us se it in a different light. Nigel is a very good story-teller. He knows his stuff and responds to questions with confidence and enthusiasm. His stories are fascinating and... More
