A walking tour of Cambridge is the perfect way for visitors to explore the this city, and to learn of its history. Our knowledgeable guide pointed out aspects of the city which would have been missed by anyone just walking around, and with access to Kings College Chapel included in the tour, it is strongly recommended.
