Tour description

Despite being one of the smallest European capital cities, Cardiff can boast of being a unique destination. Stroll through its old town and travel to the Middle Ages to discover Wales' history and its less-known secrets.

We will meet right outside Cardiff’s Castle main entrance, on Castle Street, one of the symbols of Wales. We will discover the Roman wall, the medieval fortress, and the Clock Tower. Continuing with our exploration, we will visit Bute Park, the green heart of the city. Spoiler alert: sneak some nuts in your pocket and squirrels may come to us! Then we will head to learn about the Arcades. Did you know that Cardiff is known as the “City of Arcades” for having the highest concentration of Victorian, Edwardian and contemporary indoor shopping arcades in the whole UK?
There is more... but you will only get to know the rest of it if you book this experience! See some of the stops in the map bellow.

Why take this guided visit?
Don't let Cardiff small size fool you. There's a lot to see and learn!
Expect tons of anecdotes, storytelling and fun facts. Did you know that only three country flags in the world have dragons on it and that Wales is one of them? Or that Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is the name of a town in Wales? I swear I'm not joking!

The tour is 2 hours long from the starting time which is 10 h.
Kindly meet your guide 15 minutes before the starting time.
The tour will finish in the city center.
We will departure punctually! Please don't be late!

No había nadie en el punto de encuentro, estubimos esperando un buen rato. Nos pareció muy mal que ni nos avisaran porque tubimos que levantarnos pronto y esperar un rato. Muy mala experiencia.

Mirko, first of all thank you for your kindness, I didn't know what to expect in Cardiff but now you showed me things that normally I would know or notice, you were great, and it was cheap compared with the quality of guidance you have, thanks!
