All About Me
I am an experienced Blue Badge Guide based in Cardiff. I am also a guide trainer and a trainer in customer service in the hospitality sector. My career has included working for many years in the tourism industry, marketing Wales in the UK and further afield. I am a Welsh speaker and have a lively interest in all things Welsh including the culture, traditions and the history of this beautiful country. I enjoy interpreting a Sense of Place to groups and individuals, sharing my passion for Wales so that their visit and the Welsh welcome they receive is truly memorable.
My specialities include walks in Cardiff City Centre, Cardiff Bay and along stretches of the Coastal Path of Wales; the castles of Wales particularly Cardiff Castle, Caerphilly Castle and Castell Coch; historic houses and gardens such as Tredegar House and Dyffryn Gardens; Museum and Galleries such as the National Museum and Gallery of Wales in Cardiff; National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as the Gower Peninsula, the Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire National Park; the Social and Industrial history of the South Wales Valleys. Wales is also the land of song and music tours are popular and opera-goers can combiine the Magic Flute with the magic of Wales!
I particularly enjoy introducing our guests to local Welsh food and drink and we have plenty on offer in restaurants, pubs and cafes throughout Wales. Sample Welsh wines, cockles and laver bread and the sweetest saltmarsh Welsh lamb.
Whatever the special interest of your group I can provide expertise in planning your tour as well as being a warm and welcoming guide for your groups.
I also work with a partner, Diana James, and you can find out more about us at www.cardiffwalesguidedtours.com
You can be confident that your group will be in safe professional hands and that your clients will really enjoy their visit to Wales.
