I took my three teens on a tour of Cambridge. We all found the tour interesting and informative. Our guide was lovely and welcoming and enthusiastic about Cambridge. She also showed an interest in future Cambridge students and gave tips on the application and interview process and what life is like as a Cambridge student which was great for my... More

Informative and well presented tour of Cambridge colleges by brilliant student Saskia who did a very good job despite group being somewhat larger than normal. This may have been due to tour taking place on a bank holiday Sunday. Saskia gave us a full 90 minutes, possibly slightly over in fact! Well done. Would recommend. Visited 24th May 2015

The tour was great. We got shown a huge amount and the tour guide was incredibly friendly and well informed. We have booked another one to take other members of our family who weren't able to attend this time around. A really enjoyable way to spend the day in Cambridge!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Cambridge Universities and I think a lot of that was down to our brilliant guide Saskia who is a current student at the university. She was very knowldegable of the city itself and all the Universities and was very happy to answer questions not covered by the tour itself. Even though I have... More

There were at least 40 people on this walking tour of Cambridge. The poor guide couldn't make herself heard and kept apologising. We saw lots of interesting places but with no chance to find much out about them. We assume there were so many people because they'd cocked up the booking, or a guide was off sick. Who knows? But...

The whole family enjoyed this including our children who are 10 and 12. Our tour guide, who was in her final year at Cambridge, was engaging and the content was interesting. At 90 minutes I'd say it was a good length.

Lauren's 90 minute tour of some of the key historical sites and colleges of Cambridge was a very enjoyable experience. It was both informative and good fun, Getting a student's eye view of life there from such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide was enlightening and refreshing. Made me long to be a student again! It was an eloquent and lively... More
