On our recent trip (a group of 45 Year-10 students) we had 3 guides, one in Bristol, two in Bath and one Cardiff. Paul, See Wales cardiff guide, was hands down the best. He kept the group's attention until the last minutes of the tour. Paul was carrying this portable microphone speaker making himself audible throughout the tour. He even... More

Cardiff is an old city which is undergoing serious development while holding its old architecture. The Cardiff castle is beautiful and if you go in it will show all the twists and eccentricities of its owners. The Bude park is serene. The arcades are beautiful and if you are shopping freak chances are you can be lost in it all... More

We had our tour with Paul who was an excellent guide and the tour was the highlight of our stay in Cardiff. Not only did we find out a lot about the history of Wales, but Paul had plenty of good stories to tell which made the tour very enjoyable. Our group was very small, and despite people being from...

.Although I've lived in Cardiff for over 40 yers, I thought it would be interesting to participate on one of the Cardiff on Foot tours to see what it was like. I don't know what I expected but was very impressed with Nigel's knowledge and his easy and friendly way of imparting that knowledge. He took us to all the... More

Cardiff centre was surprisingly (to me) open and green, and Nigel clearly knew his stuff. I was the only visitor on my tour, which became two blokes having a stroll and a chat! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and learned a lot about Cardiff, Wales and the origins of the word "Welsh". Would recommend to anyone with an interest in the... More

very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Although I had to translate into French for my party, it was not a chore. Nigel's diction was perfect. This tour gave us a very good idea of the city's past and present. I can appreciate as I myself give guided tours of my home town.

This tour was great. Nigel was really knowledgeable, and able to answer any questions on anything Wales related that I had. The weather was atrocious, but the tour was interesting that I didn't mind!
