This private day tour of Cardiff is the perfect tour for anyone who wants to quickly get to know that Welsh capital. Together with a local Cardiffian (someone from Cardiff), you'll visit Cardiff Castle, St Fagans National Museum of History, Cardiff Bay, and more!
Starting at the oldest building in Cardiff, Cardiff Castle, you'll discover how the Welsh capital has changed through various conquests and occupations, and how it was first used as a Roman Fort.

The final stop of the tour is the beautiful Cardiff Bay, home to the Senedd (the Welsh Parliament), the Wales Millennium Centre, and Roald Dahl Plas, named after the famous children’s author who was born in the city in 1916.
