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. It was great to have an actual person doing the commentary rather than the usual recording through headphones that you get elsewhere. We only used our... More

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

We have used the Hop On Hop Off bus service in several cities to provide an overview of the city and as an easy transportation link. Unfortunately, this one is not up to par. It takes less than an hour to travel the route, this with the drivers going very slow, with 10 stops, most of them in the Cardiff... More

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that your experience wasn't as good as the majority of our other TripAdvisor reviews would suggest.

This is an excellent way to see the key sights around Cardiff if time is short. There's an informative guide to point out the key sights and provide local insights into the city's history. Good value and the ticket has a generous time allocation for validity.

Loved seeing Cardiff city etc and getting all the information/history. The staff were brill. It's nice to get off certain stops to look around places of interest and then get back on the bus. Prices are very reasonable.
