The thick mist we were surrounded in was very atmospheric. If I have one word of warning its that its very cold and dark (duh) so you should come dressed... More

Nothing special, obviously didn't see any ghosts, great stories but it did feel a lot like a school trip but for adults. Would love to have actually seen some sort of paranormal activity. Would recommend going just for the experience and stories. Gets you thinking and gives knowledge about spirit planes/realms and stuff. It did rain because it's Wales, so... More

Dear Samira. I am glad that you appreciated the ghost stories and the overall experience, and I am especially grateful that you recommend it to others. I am sorry that you were disappointed at not seeing any paranormal activity. If only we could so readily oblige! Sometimes, as the stories described, we have certainly had inexplicable incidents occur but we... More

We met at the City Cross, Llandaff and then proceeded to the outside of Llandaff Cathedral where our tour started. It was an eerie night as the mist rolled in from the River Taff as we stood in the field opposite with the grass frosting at our feet. It was great going into a cemetery not used for 60 years...

This is the second walk I have done from this company and it really was great! Completely different to the Castle walk (if you haven't done it and you like Cardiff history alone let alone anything paranormal!) but still brilliant! I would love to have gone into the cathedral but standing looking at it hearing the history was great! Wear... More

This is a properly authentic ghost walk - no special effects, no costumed characters etc. The atmosphere is provided by the darkness and the natural environment and the stories are fascinating and chilling. Be prepared to open your mind and immerse yourself in some particularly spooky parts of Cardiff history. Loved it, thank you.
