We had a similar experience to another reviewer in that we had an excellent tour of Oxford a couple of years ago and expected similar in Cambridge. Our guide was good in as much as she was knowledgeable about the subjects and ensured the group (of approx 18) stayed together. However we spent rather too much time on a few... More

I'm sorry you felt disappointed with the tour but thank you for taking the time to leave a review as it helps us develop our service. The tour can seem expensive at £18 per person but it does include up to £11 in entrance fees making the 2 hour element of the tour just £7. As the entrance fees make... More

Took two walking tours - one of Kings and Queens Colleges, and the other of one of the libraries. The first was outstanding - friendly and very knowledgeable guide, who also brought her personal perspective. The second was also very good, although the guide wasn't quite as warm. Definitely worth it!

Though expensive this tour was well worth it. They get booked up early so if you want a specific time/date probably best to book online or phone beforehand. Morning tours tend to do Kings and Queens Colleges and afternoons Kings snd Pembroke. Beverley our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and Kings Chapel was amazing!

We had been on a similar tour in Oxford and were very impressed by the guide who was interesting and knowledgeable, in fact we would have liked a longer tour. We were therefore looking forward to learning all about the colleges and history of Cambridge. Unfortunately our Cambridge guide was vague, her delivery was disjointed and there was no structure...

Thank you for takin the time to leave your review, however I am very concerned with the contents. Our guides as in Oxford are trained for a year and examined thoroughly before they are awarded the City badge and should therefore be extremely knowledgeable. If possible can I ask you to contact me on tours@cambridge.gov.uk so I can discuss your... More

I took this walking tour on a day trip to Cambridge on the bank holiday Monday in August. Unfortunately it was an absolute downpour from beginning to end but the tour was so interesting that it didn't really matter in the end. I believe our guide was Helen, although I might be mistaking, and she explained very well the history... More

We went on a tour with Margot. A suspect the quality of the tour varies with the tour guide. Ours was sometimes difficult to hear and sometimes lost the thread of what she wanted to tell us. She seemed to tell us some quite unimportant details so that the tour overran. She didn't explain things that well - I ended... More

Our guide took us round all the sights and gave us a good insight into the history without going over the top. The tour was done at an easy pace and took in a lot of the city.
