It's a fairy short circuit -- only 11 stops -- but nicely done, interesting commentary, and super friendly staff.

The city is just like any other city. We were in the bus only and so not much to see and do . Maybe Wales is more pretty if you go on the offbeat sector

It is the only way to see a lot of places in Cardiff. Naturally it is necessary also to see the city on foot, (eg its famous arcades). The combination of two manners is the best!
