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.
