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

We went to Cambridge just for a day and we decided to take the walking tour which included the Queens and Kings college. We were very lucky with our tour guide, Tony. Really funny, huge amount of knowledge, I could hear him telling stories about Cambridge the whole day! Recommend highly Sofia and Bas

I took the official guided walking tour of university on Easter Sunday. It was very crowded because there were many other visitors, but the tour guide Helen was very gracious and did an excellent job of explaining different buildings and the history of the town and the university to us. I booked the tour online, however, you can simply go... More

Last week we booked a 2 hour tour of Kings and Pembroke. Our guide was very knowledgeable but although to hear a brief history of Cambridge was good I did not enjoy the lengthy part about the admission process for Students etc. And when the guide said he'd tell us something about himself I did despair a little. All this... More
