Description: If you want to discover Cardiff and enjoy a good walk then look no further...
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.

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...

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

I am delighted that you enjoyed both the City Stroll and Cardiff Bay Ramble. Taking both walks meant that you were able see the two important areas of interest in Cardiff, the city centre and Bay. Thanks for a great review. More
