Such a well done tour. James was fab. A guy with a genuine passion and interest for area and the phenomenon. Created a fantastic atmosphere. The history and stories of the place are fascinating. Will definitely be looking into other tour from these guys. Will give even the biggest of sceptics a bit of the heeby geebies

Having done a few ghost tours around the world, this was perhaps one of the best. The location is simply wonderful. Our guide, John, met us on a lovely Summer's evening and as the sun went down we explored the meadow in the dark where the stories became more and more unnerving and terrifying. We had a small group of... More

Really enjoyed !! found the history talk very interesting - I actually live in Llandaff and had no idea of the gruesome history of the Cathedral. Our guide was John and he was a very entertaining. Going to book St Fagan next !

Many thanks for your review and I am glad you enjoyed the experience. Yes, Llandaff has a pretty turbulent history which, it seems, has left us with these dark and sinister ghostly tales! Looking forward to seeing you at St Fagans! Best wishes, James Cowan More

We traveled from Canada for a weeks vacation in Cardiff, Wales and this ghost walk was the first event during our fantastic visit to the UK. Our guide was a great storyteller and led us on a interesting tour of the grounds surrounding the beautiful Llandaff Cathedral. After a long flight over the Atlantic we may have been more open...

Thank you so much for a very informative and fascinating review. Your experience actually sounds familiar and consistent with what others have reported occasionally. As you say, there is no telling what exactly you experienced, but it is the intrigue of these repeated reports which I find thrilling, and on these tours we have tried to explain why such incidents...

Attended the Llandaff Ghost tour hosting by John. This is our first trip to Wales and we found it very informative and interesting. John kept your attention and really sucked you into the stories.

Dear Katie, well I am really honoured that you chose to do the Llandaff Ghost Walk on your first trip to Wales, and that it seems to have been such a positive experience for you. You are right, the ghost walk route is remarkably undisturbed and feels remote and full of atmosphere despite its urban location. I am really pleased... More

Went on this tour with my husband as it was something different to do on a Saturday night. Neither of us had visited Llandaff Cathedral and surrounding area before so it was great to learn about the history of the place, in the dark, whilst being told the stories of paranormal experiences that some people have had. The tour guide... More

Really enjoyed the stories and how they all linked up at the end. At one point a few of us kept looking at a certain spot in the clearing and felt like something was watching us. Spooky! Saw a few white feathers on our route as well. Highly recommend. Cardiff Castle one next I think!
