Visit Cardiff Bay and the Victorian seaside town of Penarth. Drive through the Vale of Glamorgan and discover ancient burial chambers and hidden villages.

Follow the Heritage Coast and don't miss the chance to hunt for fossils, or maybe take a dip in the sea. The tour finishes where it began in Cardiff.

Me and my girlfriend had am amazing time. Ricky is very knowledgeable and well informed on different topics regarding Cardiff and the surroundings: history, politics, customs, traditions, urban legends, geography. He was very friendly and accommodating and answered all out questions. The gorgeous places we visited were enhanced by having someone to tell us local legends and historical facts. We enjoyed every minute or our trip, from visiting the most important places in Cardiff to the gorgeous view of the bay, the visit of a ruin castle in a field full of beautiful, friendly horses, the ancient burial site, to the créme dé la créme, the absolute stunning beach that left us breathless with its unique beauty. Definitely wear waterproof shoes and pack a waterproof jacket just in case, we had beautiful weather. One of the best tours we have been on and the best outdoors activity of this year so far.
