About Fogo

Despite being a native Irishman, I have developed a love and fascination for the underappreciated cities of Cardiff & Swansea, as well as Wales as a whole, during my time living here.

As a historian, journalist and long-term tourism professional across multiple cities, I have developed a passion for history, travel and culture, and sharing information about my adopted home to inquisitive visitors on these walking tours of Cardiff, Swansea & Cardiff Bay is a perfect way to embrace these skills and interests.

Following a challenging year or so due to Covid-19, we at Fogo's Free Tours can't wait to return to regular touring and sharing our love of Wales to the world once again. 

Free walking tour Cardiff
Teresa, Lisbon, Sept 2020

t was really nice spending the day with Eugene in Cardiff. Two tours which helped  us understand the city, its past,  and its present. Eugene has great knowledge of the history and culture of some other countries and could easily make links to local characteristics.

Joanna, London, August 2020

Having done city tours across Europe, I thought this stood out because Eugene made a real effort to be personable and engaging: taking the time to speak to everyone in the group, linking his information not just to Cardiff but to wider Welsh history and it was also very obvious that he took time and effort in keeping his information relevant and up to date. 

Graham, Sheffield, August 2020

Eugene was extremely welcoming, friendly, knowledgable and came across as a really nice guy. He definitely added so much to our Wales visit.
