Suggestions for a Cardiff Tour Guide

We will be taking a R.S. tour in May that ends in Bath. We would like to then visit Wales on our own, but we will not have a car. We would like to take public transportation to Cardiff, and then have a local tour guide spend 2 days introducing us to southern Wales. Could anyone suggest a guide for Wales?

We did South Wales on our own. It is easy to do. Cardiff's main sites to see are the Cardiff Castle (in downtown), The Museum for Welsh Life, a bit west of the city and Caerphilly Castle (a few miles north of the city, take the train).

Also, we stayed two nights in Tenby, SW of Cardiff.

Thank you for the reply. We discovered that northern Wales is more heavily touristed than southern Wales, and therefore most of the guide/tourist industry is located in the north. We did not have luck in finding a local southern guide, and I am not comfortable in renting a car and driving in Great Britain.

We elected to spend extra time in Bath after the R.S. tour, and we may stop in Windsor on our way to LHR.

We are also looking for a tour guide for May 7-9. We are a party of 4. I went to the website but it seems that these are day tours.My brother was looking for someone to be our guide for 2-3 days for a tour in Wales to Newcastle Emlyn, Llandysul and Cardiff. He would pay to rent the car and for their hotel room. He has been researching our Welsh roots. Does anyone know who I might contact for
something like this?

Try doing a google search for Blue Badge guides in South Wales - you will find several websites ...

This website lists lots of guides but you will need to check their location.

There are two other names here.

Or there is this one

See Wales has already been mentioned.

A few other things to see in Cardiff are the National Museum, Cardiff dock and Bute Park. The outside of the Cardiff Millennium Centre also makes for a good photo-op. We went to Cardiff to see the Doctor Who sites but were surprised to see that it had some nice spots.

If you like Italian food, I can heartily recommend Casanova which is in the shadow of the stadium. Hands down the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy and run by Italians. Small menu but fresh.
