5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a must if you want to learn about the city of Cardiff and its history. Bill, the guide, is extremely knowledgable and gives a remarkable insight into the history of Cardiff. The tour takes just under two hours but it is never boring. It's also excellent value for money. I echo the remarks made in other comments that it is one of the best city guides I have ever been on.

“Top Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We enjoyed a fab introduction to Cardiff, Bill really brings the city to life, and puts the history, architecture, and growth of this city and the country into context, whilst also entertaining us with colourful characters from the past. Bill has incredible knowledge, and his presentation is of top quality, bringing the past to life. My husband and I have travelled widely and this is certainly the best City tour that we have done. For anybody visiting Cardiff, this is not to be missed.

“The best walking tour ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We've travelled a lot worldwide and always try to fit in a walking tour of the cities visit. Can honestly say this is the best walking tour we've ever been on. Bill, our guide took on us a tour of the city providing information from the very beginning of Cardiff as a settlement to modern day all in two hours. His knowledge of the city and its history is remarkable and he kept it interesting for the whole time. Highly recommended.

We were walked around Cardiff by Dewi ( David ). His knowledge of the towns history is outstanding. He also took us to some great arcades full of old world charm that are easily missed by a day visitor. He also gave us some brief history of the origins of Dr Who but being more of a Torchwood fan he gave me clues as to where to find Ianto's Shrine.... Thanks David I found it!. I highly recommend this tour it is essential when visiting Cardiff.

Bill O'Keefe escorted my 30 visitors from around the UK on a 2 hour walking tour around Cardiff. The distance travelled was short but the knowledge imparted was immense.

The tour was just outstanding! Bill had an intimate knowledge of Cardiff history and presented it in a most entertaining and informative way. He welcomed questions and his responses showed an excellent in depth knowledge of his subject.

Many in my group said it was the best walking tour guide they had been on anywhere in the UK.

Without hesitation I would recommend this tour to any group or individual wanting an insight into Cardiff and its history.
