Read up on history of Cardiff and even Wales in general, whether its small or lot that know of. I found the tour very rewarding and the guide Eugene very knowledgeable about the history of this city, which for me did know much at all before the tour and the tour only had myself and the guide, which was fine. Its an amazing place to go see at least once, there's so much to explore and learn from it. I would like to make as a recommendation that learnt from tour guide that if other tour companies such as Contiki and Topdeck which been on recently, should include Cardiff and Wales in general as not sure why they don't specifically, there might be genuine understandable reasons behind it but im sure any tour guide or even Eugene would love to have a travelling tour group, go on this.
