Taxi service from St Fagans to Tintern

 After spending a half day at St Fagans, we are hoping to book a taxi service to Tintern Abbey (and time permitting - bit of the Wye Valley)  in early July. Can anyone please recommend a good service for this? Plan to leave SF at 2pm and drop the taxi at Newport/Severn Tunnel Jn at 6 pm.

Also read that the indoor gallery and celtic village of SF are undergoing renovation. Hope it's still worth a half day with an 8 year old inquisitive kid?

I use Gez Taxi's, a local taxi firm in South Wales. Phone number 01443 224777. Gez is very reliable.

The Celtic village was only a small part of St Fagan's! There is plenty to see there

Welshtraveller111 - I will try out Gez as you suggest.

KnowAll - glad to know SF continues to delight despite the renovation.

Thanks both for your help.

Welshtraveller111 - I spoke to Gez today - unfortunately he recommended that we try with a Cardiff Taxi Company as they don't do pick ups from St Fagans. I found Capital Cabs online, but they appear to be more geared towards airport pick ups and drops. Have you had any experience with them? Else, could you recommend any other taxi service? Thanks a lot.

I have not used them to go outside Cardiff but within Cardiff have always used Dragon Taxis and have found them to be prompt and very informative.

Have you considered getting the train from Cardiff Central station direct to Chepstow (about 40 min journey) then getting a local Chepstow taxi to take you to Tintern (about 15 min drive)?
