Full description
Explore the city with a friendly local who is passionate about his/her city and eager to share all the tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighbourhood, find out about the best places to eat and buy groceries, the easiest ways to get around, and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel more comfortable in navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Once the supplier receives your booking, they’ll get in touch with you to confirm all the details for the tour: meeting place and time, language and your contact information, and also ask you some questions to get to know you better. They hand-pick the right local for you based on your interests. Each tour is completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer (minimum: 2 hours).  During the walking tour you will have the option of taking public transportation or taxi to get around the city (at your expense). The guides are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travellers and share what they love about their city.  They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city.  Through conversations with your Lokafyer, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in Cardiff learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city`, you’ll be part of it.

Darren was exactly the guy for this trip. Very knowledgeable and helpful for my purposes to learn about life in Cardiff. Even though the weather was terrible, we made the most of it seeing the sites and even sharing some coffee and a meal when the weather got really bad. Highly recommended.

Tony Lloyd is the best local guide we had in this trip. His knowledge of the city is amazing. He turned our initial negative impression of Cardiff to a very positive one . My daughters adored him. He is witty, funny, fatherly, and went out of his way several times to make sure we had an enjoyable 3 hour tour of Cardiff. His being a tourist himself in more than 1000 cities around the globe prepared him to be this excellent .Me and my family will definitely recommend him to anyone who visits the city .

Gillian sat with me near the beginning of the tour and we discussed my expectations from the tour. Overall she was very nice and informative, and we even went on a book hunting to answer some burning questions I had. However, it was only later when she offered me to take me to Caerphilly Castle and back which very impressed me. It went on an hour past our appointment but she did it anyway. She is an excellent guide and if I had more cash on me after the shopping I would have tipped more. Totally deserved it.
