Great Tour With Great Host

Peter’s walking tour of Penarth was super informative and the views were great. He is very knowledgeable of the local area and provided context to Penarth that I would have otherwise never known. Peter is also super friendly and a fantastic host. My friends and I had a great time. Thanks Peter!

Amazing couple of hours - despite the rain!
Jan 2020
Even though we have lived in Penarth for nearly two years, we decided to go on a walk one wet and blustery morning with Peter to learn more about our local area. We were not disappointed! Peter was an exceptionally well-informed guide, whose personable attitude and friendly manner helped give us a hitherto unknown insight into the interesting history of Penarth and wider Cardiff.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend taking a tour with Peter. If you are a visiting tourist, or have lived in the area for some time, I'm sure that you will learn something new while having a thoroughly nice natter along the way.

Many thanks, Peter!

Enjoy Penarth History with a Great Guide
Nov 2019 • Solo
Peter provided a fascinating story of Penarth and how its history influenced Cardiff. It is a nice story of how people lived and worked and played. This is a walking tour with hills so be prepared, but you really need to do the walk to see the architecture. Penarth is physically and architecturally beautiful and Peter tells its story well.

A fascinating insight to Penarth history
Aug 2019
We moved to Penarth a few years ago and Pete provided us a unique insight and intriguing depth to the Penarth we had already grown to love. With a highly researched knowledge of the area and its history Pete showed us how Penarth was born, how it flourished and walked us by the key landmarks behind its rich and fascinating history. As new Penarth residents we now have a comprehensive understanding of where we live and a newfound respect for those who resided in Penarth before us. The walk took about 3 hours. Penarth is on a hill so there is much up and down but it was taken at a leisurely pace that even my 6 year old son was comfortable with. I highly recommend Pete's walk for newcomers to Penarth and residents who would like to learn more.

A first class guided tour of Penarth.
Aug 2019
Peter’s knowledge of Penarth is very extensive and his tour of just over two hours covered a variety of areas of the town, enabling him to relate information about their history and the events and people responsible for shaping their development.
Peter’s relaxed and friendly presence made the whole experience very interesting and we saw many buildings and views which we would never have found on our own.
Highly recommended.

Best value for money you could possibly find
An excellent and very pleasant 2.5 hours spent in the company of Peter who proved to be very knowledgable about all things Penarth. On the tour we saw places and views that we would have struggled to find on our own and learned much about the key movers and shakers who have shaped Penarth over the last 200 years. Best value for money you could possibly find as he does this for the love of it and accepts no payment. Highly recommended.
