Thank you so much for your review, and I am glad you were able to experience the spooky atmosphere even if you did not experience any ghosts (if only I could make them appear to order!).

“Amazing night!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

When my friend and I realised it was going to be a full moon on a Friday the 13th we decided we wanted to do something different and spooky. We found the Llandaff walk online and thought we would try it out.

We both enjoyed ourselves a lot and definitely experienced things that neither of us could fully explain. The leader of the walk was very funny and we enjoyed all his stories along the way. We're now thinking of experiencing the Cardiff Castle Midnight Tour sometime soon.

Overall absolutely amazing night! Would recommend to anyone!

Hi Sophie

Thanks so much for a super review. I am heartened to see that you enjoyed the tour both times you joined it, as each one was led by a different guide bringing a different approach. I hope to see you on another tour soon (and, hush hush, don't let on but I hope to be announcing a brand new venue for ghost tours very soon!) Jim Cowan

“Great spooky night out.”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We went on the full moon Llandaf ghost walk which started at 11.00pm and in true welsh form it was raining, this did not spoil the atmosphere though as we were made aware that water can help enable paranormal activity.
We walked through the Cathedral grounds and surrounding areas, stopping every once in a while listenening to the ghost stories, it was very spooky with strange noises being heard, Jim the guide was fantastic very knowledgeable and a very nice man. We took plenty of pictures and there were some strange sights.
Overall the trip was so interesting we have booked to do another at Margam Park, I would highly recommend this trip if you want an unusual spooky evening.

Dear Rhiannon, thank you so much for your great review. I'm glad you had such a good atmospheric and spooky time, even if the moon only made a brief appearance in the graveyard! If you found Llandaff spooky I am confident that you will love Margam! See you there in November! Jim Cowan
