We booked this guided walking tour before we arrived through the Tourist Information Office and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide Shirley, was very knowledgable and professional and made our walk both interesting and fun. We visited King's College and Queen's College as well as the Eagle pub and Shirley pitched the information provided just right. A little pricey at... More

Amazing walking tour with Stephen our fantastic guide. For two hours we were amazed with the his knowledge and learnt so much . We saw so much we would never have seen or learnt on our own. This "official guided tour" is very good value.

There are loads of ticket touts in Cambridge but would strongly recommend you ignore them all and book your tour through the information bureau. Our guide was Dr. Stephen Halliday, a lecturer at one of the university colleges. He was not only informative but also highly entertaining.

Took this walking tour after using the city sightseeing bus tour as most of the college’s were closed I thought it was a good way to get to Kings College chapel. The tour is approximately 2 hours and whilst I’d heard some of the history to Cambridge on the bus tour there was a lot of things I learnt on... More

Date of tour: 6 June 2015 Our guide was Dr Stephen Halliday. We enjoyed our tour very much. He entertained us with interesting nuggets of information that gave context to the landmarks and helped us better appreciate them. The 2 hours passed by very quickly. A highly recommended tour.

A 2 he walking tour if Cambridge, led by a local guide. Good explanation about the history of Cambridge, some of the buildings and about the colleges. Included a visit to Kings College Chapel, well recommended. Discounts for students and senior citizens, but still a bit expensive

Great knowledgeable guide who attended Cambridge a year behind Stephen Hawking and who served as a counselor to the students more recently. Two hour tour took us all over with lots of interesting information that helped us appreciate what was around us. Made our visit to Cambridge more meaningful.

This was definitely the highlight of our day trip to Cambridge. We arrived via train from London and immediately headed to the Tourist Information Center. Here we were able to book both our guided walking tour and a punting tour (at a special discount). Our tour guide, Nancy, was a delight: full of wonderful information about Cambridge and it's history,... More

A great way to see as much of the essence of Cambridge in as little time as possible. The super-knowledgeable guide pointed out plenty of interesting tidbits about the history and odd objects along the tour. King's College Chapel was a supreme top-off for the tour. Cannot be surpassed. If you have just a short amount of time or want... More
