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!

Nigel presents Cardiff in an amazing way, bringing forth the history of the city combined with interesting stories and amazing sense of humour. Highly recommended for the beginning of your stay/visit, you get an extremely good insight to Cardiff.

The sunshine only added to a fabulous day. Nigel brought the history of the city to life in a great hour and three quarters. My 3 children (aged 9 & 7) all found the tour great fun, and Nigel brought the stories of the city to life. The tour is a great way to get to know a little more... More

The day itself wasn't fantastic, but the tour was captivating enough to make us forget about it! Nigel was knowledgeable and friendly, and (as if that wasn't enough) he even offered us his extra umbrellas. Definitely worth it!

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 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.
