Brilliant weekend, loads of places to eat and drink, we went to the Brewhouse in Cardiff, they had live music on and it had a great atmosphere inside. Loads of place to eat everything from Noodles to Steak houses. The only downside was the amount of beggars there was asking for money or cigarettes etc. There was also a lot... More

Jumped on to find that it would cost over £30 pounds for my wife and son to travel down to Cardiff Bay from the City Centre!!! Jumped off and paid £5 for a 24 hour family ticket on the Baycar! Very expensive for what you actually get!

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you didn't use our tour to explore Cardiff with the unique perspective of the top deck and didn't find it good value for money upon first glance. We feel that the tour is more than a way of getting down to Cardiff Bay as the price for a ticket is... More

I am a big fan of these hop on hop off city sight seeing buses. The latest one we used was in Cardiff. Great value for money as the ticket is valid for two days. We constantly used it to get to places around Cardiff and enjoyed listening to the commentary through the headsets - even our teenager found it... More

The Hop on Hop off bus is the best way to see any city. Both driver and guide were really friendly and the commentary en route was excellent. It was great to have an actual person doing the commentary. We used it to get from Cardiff Castle to Doctor Who Experience.

Cardiff isn't particularly very big, it takes 10 minutes perhaps less to walk the length of the city centre but the tour bus makes it look interesting giving very useful and sometimes exaggerated information about people and buildings. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the route of the tour bus is perfect as it will take you to... More

We took the hop on, hop off bus to get down to Cardiff Bay and then on to the Castle. Both driver and guide were really friendly and the commentary en route was excellent.

First time we have done a Hop On Hop Off bus and we felt well worth it as we had never been to Cardiff before and learning about the area and the history was well worth it. The guy advised us if we did the trip he could give us 10% off Cardiff Castle but we had just come out... More

For them that would rather travel, then bus service is good. The railway station is close by, and there are river trips.

When in the UK every 2 years from Sydney / Australia I always make an effort to visit beautiful Cardiff City & surrounding areas. I spent an entire day in Cardiff on 23/08/16 & eventually aiming for Eastbrook to meet an old friend. Cardiff City changes each time I re-visit with great shopping areas with some small interesting shopping arcades.... More

We visited Cardiff for 2 days and did the hop on hop off bus tour. We first had a chat to the staff outside the Castle as we wanted to go into the Castle first and they advised us to buy the bus tickets prior to our visit to the Castle as this entitles you to a 10% discount. The... More
