All our tours are private tours for up to 3 people (4 on our Cardiff City Tour), and unique to just you and your group. Our guides are licenced Cardiff Private Hire Drivers, who spend the rest of their working lives driving people around Cardiff. What better way to see Cardiff, and find out more about the history of the city, and the "go to" places than someone who spends their days driving around the city.
Our regional tours, and longer tours are ideal for those who want to see more than just Cardiff.
On a regional tours we can show you around Cardiff, then you have a choice of seeing the Vale of Glamorgan if scenery is your preference. If History is more your thing, we have the Cardiff & Newport Tour which includes some of the best preserved Roman Remains anywhere in Newport. If your a fan of Castles, our Three Castles tour takes you around Cardiff, before visiting Three Castles in one day.
Our Longer Tours, leave Cardiff altogether and show you more of Wales. Our "Off The Shelf" longer tours take in places such as Tintern Abbey. Market towns like Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Brecon, Builth Wells & Rhyader. As well as the dramatic scenery of the Brecon Beacon National Park, Mid Wales and the Afon Valley.
You can book an "off the shelf" tour, or contact us, and we will put together a tour specifically for you, going where you want to go and seeing what you want to see. Whether you are coming on one of our standard tours, or we are designing one specifically for you, you can be sure of an enjoyable few hours.

For this the customer will be charged full mileage rates 2.9 The driver for the tours is licenced private hire or hackney drivers and not Historical experts.
