I was honestly shocked at how much we saw with Paul. The tour was just with me and my wife (I didn't realize it'd be only the two of us), but Paul gave us probably the best walking tour I'll ever take. We only had one day in Cardiff, but we showed us, like, everything. In the main area of the old city, he took us around Cardiff Castle's outside, through a lovely part next to the castle, though an old shopping arcade, through a newer mall, down the main streets, and past some old buildings. Then he surprised us by taking us into Cardiff museum, which is free, where we saw honest-to-god dinosaur skeletons, and also a ton of impressionist masters' paintings and sculptures. Who knew Cardiff has the biggest impressionist collection in Europe outside of Paris! Then we went a long walk away to the port area (the boats weren't running due to heavy rain the night before, but you could also do this portion on a bus if you're not young and up for miles of walking like we were), where we went into another free museum to watch a nice video about Cardiff's history. Then Paul shocked us again by walking us right into the Welsh Parliament building, where we spent five minutes watching the actual Welsh Parliament debate Brexit! With this tour, you can get the whole city in one day, and Paul is a perfect tour guide. Take this tour!!

with a group of older visitors Paul paced the walk brilliantly. his knowledge and passion for the city is obvious. we got to see some of the otherwise easily missed nooks and crannies of the city, as well as the bigger sites like the castle and market. would definitely recommend

I am a French teenage girl who visited Cardiff for the first time with my father and little sister. Since we were staying for a short time, we didn't want to miss the most important features in the Welsh capital and so, during my planning of the trip, I came upon "Cardiff on foot"... At first, I was afraid that my father would not understand anything since he doesn't speak English very well. But I took the risk and on morning 26 May, we went to the meeting point. We met guide Paul and realized that we were the only ones to visit that day. Paul was very understanding and our visit began. I do not regret my choice because we discovered some parts of Cardiff that we couldn't imagine or wouldn't have found by ourselves. Without that guided tour, we wouldn't have thought of going into City Hall to see its fantastic statues of prominent figures of Welsh history, for example. I do think that the most interesting thing about the Cardiff on Foot visit is the lot of little stories told by Paul : he is obviously passionate about his home city and wants us to share his interest ! Our walk lasted 2h30 but we soon lost track of the time spent. It was a warm and sunny day which made our visit even more enjoyable. Finally, my father understood the visit thanks to our super guide who never infantilized us. He was very generous, kind and smart. I obviously recommend Cardiff on Foot which makes people learn to look at Cardiff in a new way. Our experience proved that it is, on top of that, available to everyone ! You won't regret your choice, just as I didn't !

I would have to say that this is one of the best tours that I have been on. Our guide was Paul and he was superb. We had a small group but he kept everyone included and engaged. I learnt heaps on the tour and thoroughly enjoyed it.
