Nigel made our walk both informative and interesting - the humour went down well too! We learnt more about Cardiff in 2 hours than we would have studying tourist information books for a week. Excellent value and the best bit of our 4 day stay in Cardiff (with the possible exception of Charlton winning!). Well done, Nigel and many thanks.... More

I have lived in Cardiff all my life and walked past some of the points of interest many times without noticing them or understanding their significance to the history of the City. Nigel our guide was very knowledgable and made the tour interesting catering for every level.

Nigel was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He is a Cardiff local and has a lot to share about the city. Amazing value for the price. You'll learn all you ever wanted to know and more about Cardiff!

Nigel made us feel welcome from the off and imparted his local knowledge in a humorous and informative way. Im sure no 2 tours are exactly the same as Nigel is able to go into more or less detail depending on your particular interests in the city. Excellent value for money!

Very enthusiastic guide who clearly loves the city and had a lot of knowledge about history/politics. Gave good recommendations for places to see on our own as well as places to eat/drink.

The rain didn't stop it. Despite the weather, the tour with Nigel was really enjoyable and entertaining. He has an extensive knowledge of Cardiff and it makes the experience memorable. He shared lots of information about the local history, making it easier to understand why the city looks like it now. I'm very passionate about facts and legends, and Nigel... More

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...
