Walking tour - We were shown the special places of St Davids by St David himself, leading with his leak and Health and Safety Rug. So many interesting and funny stories all of which I am chosing to believe esp the one that included the porpoise.

Brilliant gem of a tour - Absolutely brilliant. 90 minutes of laughs and entertainment. A tour by the actual St. David himself (and not forgetting the brilliant Rug). Highly recommended.

A good place to take a leek - Our small group enjoyed this tour of St David’s by two brilliantly entertaining performers who managed to stay in character and engage with their audience as well as miscellaneous others who intervened as we explored the city streets and learned all about the famous Welsh saint. Most of the legend is there, the miracles, the monks, the violence and .. the leek. An excellent and entertaining way to start an enjoyable evening in our smallest city.
