We did this City Sightseeing Trip on a damp day at the end of August. We left Cardiff Museum to pick up the bus right outside which was a bonus. We were a group of 2 adults and a 9 year old child and the cost was £28. (although it would have been the same price for a family ticket to include one further child) for this price you can hop on and off over a 2 day period, but we only had the one day available. We have done these trips in others cities, including Barcelona, Rome, Florence and San Francisco. The duration of the tour, quality of information and price paid I felt was not good value for money compared to tours in these other cities. Whilst the cost was similar, the tour was shorter and commentary far less interesting. We took two buses, one with a guide on a microphone, which was very difficult to hear, and the other with commentary through headphones. I would recommend taking a tour with headphone commentary if possible. Overall I was a bit disappointed.

We did the tour with live commentary; Heather was awesome. A depth of knowledge about Cardiff that was fabulous!! Would recommend live commentary tour of Cardiff to anyone going there.

We took the City Sightseeing HopOn-HopOff bus on a tour around Cardiff. It was a good way to see some of the highlights of the city. I like to think of it as "A Taste Of.......". It is not an in-depth city tour so do not have that expectation. We like to ride the entire route at least twice to get the lay of the land and decide which stops to visit. It is a good activity to do on your first day after crossing the pond from the US when you might be having low energy due to sleep deprivation.

Used the open top bus for a sightseeing tour of Cardiff. Excellent commentary; saw more parts of the city and dock area than I would have had time for otherwise. Really helpful and friendly guide and driver. Well worth the money.

Definitely a good way of seeing the city and finding out about the history of the places. We did this in October and enjoyed it so when we went with our daughter we knew we had to take her on the tour.
