We had an absolutely marvellous tour with Lucy around Cardiff Bay. It was a tour full of history, architecture, socio-economics, all delivered by Lucy in a very light and deft way, and well illustrated by historical photographs which she brought along. The tour was full of contrasts; from the phenomenal growth of Cardiff to become the coal capital of the world, to the city’s decline as the era of coal waned, then to the redevelopment and regeneration of the Bay


Really interesting tour and Lucy explained everything very clearly at a good pace, friendly and would use again. Came away feeling I had learnt something about this new city I have moved into


Lucy is very knowledgeable and we had a great time exploring Cardiff with her! She is a lovely person and we really enjoyed the special touch that you stop together for a refreshment while on tour. She went out of her way to accommodate our requests at the last minute. We highly recommend doing a Cardiff walking tour with Lucy!

I thought I knew Cardiff but this tour gave me a much better insight into aspects of the city and was thoroughly enjoyable. Would also be an excellent tour for those new to the city or just on a short stay and wanting to get orientated, know, where to go and to understand the city.
