Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are the tours really free?
The tour is free to join for anybody. All that is asked is for guests to contribute what they feel the tour was worth at the end. You're promised the best tour of Cardiff possible, and your generosity allows this project to continue running for other tourists in the future and to grow further.
2. Do the tours take place in the rain?
Of course, the tour runs rain or shine. This is Cardiff and rain is always a possibility, so it's best to be prepared anyway.
3. Are the tours wheelchair accessible?
Yes, Cardiff is quite a flat city and wheelchair friendly. The Cardiff & Cardiff Bay tours don't involve crossing too many busy streets. The Swansea Tour involves a little bit more road crossing but is wheelchair accessible.
4. Where does The Cardiff Tour finish?
The Cardiff city tour finishes in front of Cardiff Castle, at approximately 1:30pm, give or take a few minutes. Unfortunately, entry is not included.
5. Where does the Cardiff Bay Tour finish?
The Cardiff Bay tour finishes in front of the Wales Millennium Centre, in the heart of Cardiff Bay, in the same location as we start the tour.
6. Are the tours suitable for children
Yes, children are more than welcome, there is more than enough interesting information for people of all ages.
7. Is there space for large groups of children, school groups or student groups?
Preferably, any large groups (e.g. school groups, university groups, children's sports clubs etc) will make contact in advance, as larger groups can not always be accommodated. In this instance, perhaps a private tour would be more appropriate.
We reserve the right to deny participation if necessary.
8. Does the tour include entry to any places of interest?
No, for example, entry to Cardiff Castle and the Principality Stadium is not included on the tour.
9. Do I need a booking for the tour?
If you are a large group, school group or sports team for example, please get in touch. However, otherwise just show up, everybody is welcome!
10. Where does The Swansea Tour finish?
The final location of the Swansea tour can vary, depending on the group and the weather. However, the tour usually finishes behind The Civic Centre overlooking Swansea Beach.
