Dear Sue, what a pleasure to read that you had such a great experience on the ghost walk. What you have described is exactly what we hope to convey - the dark atmosphere and chilling past of this spot which does not need any manufactured drama to have the effect - it speaks for itself! I am glad that you... More

My daughter and I love all the haunted TV shows and thought it would be fun to do this. The tour guide was fantastic, so enthusiastic and his knowledge of history and stories was captivating. A very well organised and interesting evening. We did the longer tour and it went so quickly , it is worth every penny for an... More

My partner, myself, our daughter and her friend went to the Llandaff ghost walk last Saturday night. James was excellent, he was very knowledgeable about what had gone on in this area - his talk was extremely interesting. The actual area was very spooky at night time! We would go on another of James' talks as we had a great... More

Thanks so much for your review. I am really pleased that the experience had the desired effect on you all. It really is a very atmospheric location at night for the ghost stories, and I am glad that you felt I was able to do them justice. Hopefully we can see you on another tour soon!

me and a couple of friends had heard about these ghost walks so thought why not. we came prepared with torches, though you generally only need them for seeing where to walk. when you stop you generally in blackness for the atmosphere , this does add to the fear. The stories make you very jumpy and get you into the... More

All the ghost walks I have been on prior to this one have been fun and it has been obvious that all the stories are entirely fictional. This one is very different! Walking around in the dark on a windy and rainy night with torches and then coming to the middle of a field to hear chilling stories with such... More

My 2nd time doing the Llandaff ghost walk and my 4th walk with this company overall (Llandaff, Margam park, Cardiff castle and St fagans) Fantastic storytellers especially James and John! Highly recommended to anyone interested in both history and ghost stories! My partner does not believe in ghosts but he still finds the walks very interesting!

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
