A very disappointing experience
, Jun 2021
The tour guide struggled to communicate due to her spoken English level. She was constantly struggling to find the words to explain something, but that's not the main problem. She seemed unprepared to give this tour and had very shallow knowledge of the city and its culture. The level of information she gave is equal to what you would get from the first 2 sentences of a Wikipedia article on the subject, and due to her poor English, we have to check Wikipedia constantly or read the information board of the historic buildings during the tour in order to understand anything she was talking about, if you'd like a clearer idea of what her presentation style felt like. Imagine an unprepared highschool student in a foreign language class struggling to find the right words while doing a presentation that he crammed for the night before school. She could not answer basic questions regarding the history of buildings and places in Cardiff that she included in the tour by herself. She said it's because she's rusty but I cannot believe that someone could forget so much of the history of a city and it does not feel right for us to be her training wheels when we paid so much money. If you are considering paying for this service, save your money and just walk around the city by yourself while looking things up on your phone. That is exactly what we did after our tour in order to get an idea about Cardiff's history.
Storm Dennis has nothing on Tony!!
, Feb 2020
We went on the tour Sunday, February 16, 2020. It was during Storm Dennis, wouldn’t you know it. Tony arrived on time, with his car and umbrellas!! It is a walking tour, but with the down pour of the storm, he brought his car to lessen the impact. We had a fantastic time!! Despite the rain and wind, we walked around the city, and the bay, learning about the history of Cardiff and seeing notable architecture and museums. He went above and beyond our expectations. We had tea and light refreshments and he took a lot of pictures of us. Very personable. He absolutely loves his city and it shows. Please ask for Tony, you won’t regret it.
Walk, listen, and enjoy...Gillian was spectacular.
, Jan 2020
Gillian was a genuine dream! Right on time, well prepared, extremely friendly. My wife and I could not be any more pleased ‼️ We heard all the little background stores and history of the area, and the makings of Cardiff. We had s pleasant walk, not hurried, and allowing for questions, and recommendations for things we did not have time to do on this tour, as well as restaurants not to miss. One of the best highlights was having afternoon high tea on the castle grounds. Too much to enjoy, and happy to have leftovers for our evening enjoyments.
We are sold on locals guiding tours!

Gillian was fantastic. You could tell she loved her city and country very much. She was very knowledgeable about the history past and present for the area. She know the back ways and places to visit. She had our time with her planned out as to not waste one minute. When we went into the markets she bought us a "welsh cake" to try which as delicious and very kind of her. She took us to a fun little shop where they make hand carved "Welch love spoons". We purchased on for us and our soon to be married daughter. They will engrave for free there, so it was a great suggestion for a souvenir. I highly recommend this tour and Gillian.
