Darren certainly knew his way around, but for a local, he knew very little about Cardiff's history. He was unable to respond to basic questions about the history of Cardiff and its primary landmarks.

He also basically ignored our three children, ages 12, 10, and 5. We specifically requested a family-friendly experience, but I felt like he was paying attention mostly to me.

We feel like we need to return to Cardiff just to get another chance to get to know the city. We fell in love with this city, no thanks to this tour.

Tony was very knowledgeable about history, culture, language, and everything related to Wales and Cardiff. Easy to talk to and he was ready with plenty of suggestions for what to do with our time in Cardiff and elsewhere in Wales. Took lots of pictures and was easy to communicate with by text. Diolch, Tony!

My husband and I had the pleasure of booking a tour with Lokafy and were lucky enough to get Tony. We spent a delightful 2+ hours touring downtown Cardiff, including several "secret" spots, unknown to many of the locals. He even included quite a few "Dr. Who" locales, which pleased my husband immensely and hadn't been on our itinerary. Tony was a wealth of information and a delightful host! What an introduction to this lovely city!!! And, thanks to Tony, we have lots of photos to help us remember this very special day.
Thanks for everything!

Darren was extremely knowledgeable and professional with a very pleasant demeanor. We would gladly recommend him as a guide and specifically ask for him should he be available on a future tour. He is an exceptional representative for your company and Wales.

Our guide was a total delight and gave us insights that only a local would know. The fact that he spoke Welsh let us into places guarded by surly ladies that he could charm. He was also very responsive to on-the-fly requests to see areas that might not have been part of a standardized tour. Highly recommended!
