We started on a bus with a live English narrator. He was quite good. After we hopped off we got back on with a recorded narration which was also very good - probably the first good recorded one I have heard in near 20 different...More

We bought a 24 hour bus ticket late on Sunday 1st November hoping to use it on Monday morning. The bus driver took our money but failed to explain that it was only good for a couple of hours and not 24!

Great way to see Cardiff and get your bearings. Buses run every half hour from Castle. Either with a guide or by using headphones. Comprehensive 50 minute tour and your ticket lasts 24 hours - very useful and good value for money.

With audio commentary and an open top bus, this is a great way to learn more about the history and culture of Cardiff. Lots of great architecture to see from an elevated vantage point and the ability to hop on and off at set stops...More

Unfortunately, we had a bad experience with this tour. Not only no live guide, but all the stops along the bay canceled, and a big traffic jam coming back to our departure point near the castle which delayed the bus by a whole hour. They...More

Usually if they're on a lead they are. We've never had a problem taking ours on a bus tour! Might be better just double checking once you're there or before you go though!
