The walking tour gives you the opportunity to explore the city's nooks and crannies, with a guide who is a font of information, anecdotes and stories about the various places of interest. Our guide Mary also speaks French, so tours are also available in other languages as well. Take a camera and prepare to learn a lot! Your starting point... More

We paid to go on a 2 hour walking tour with a local guide. It was booked and started from the tourist information centre for £18. We visited many places of interest and the ticket included entry to Kings College Chapel and Queens College.

We went on a guided ghost tour of Cambridge and of course the Colleges. Tony was funny and had a huge amount of knowledge. The tour wasn't too scary for those who might fright easily as there were a number of small children. I would reccommend as a must do for something a little different on your visit to Cambridge!

On 22nd October we took the walking tour of Cambridge with our very knowledgeable guide Dr Stephen, informative insight into the history and organisation of Cambridge University and its component colleges. Two hours well spent on a perfect sunny Autumn morning. Highly recommended.

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.
