        We had an amazing time with Dick who was our group leader. He was so knowledgeable about the colleges, alumni and background history.

        Very informative tour. Well worthwhile.
        So much better than a map and a guide book. We had Dick whose local knowledge was outstanding. He was able to show and tell us things we would never have discovered ourselves. I shall be dining out on many of his ".....now, did you know?"

      Cambridge on Foot, and specifically Jo, were highly recommended by a very exacting friend who knows Cambridge very well, so I knew we would be in good hands. Jo was very responsive on email and helpful when it came to suggesting an itinerary that would give us a good idea of the geography and main sights of the city but also visit some specific places, including the area where some of my forebears lived. On the day, Jo was friendly, funny and a mine of information, great at taking photos of us in front of some of the beautiful architecture and excellent on the history of the city, especially the long struggle for women to be able to attend the university. Jo also made some great suggestions for other places we might like to visit after our tour, and through her we discovered Mill Road, with all its fantastic independent restaurants and the antiques shops on Gwydir Street, which are excellent for browsing. Thank you so much Jo for introducing us to this beautiful city.

      It was a pleasure to meet you both and to explore some of the lesser visited areas of Cambridge as well as the main sights. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your guided tour and the rest of your stay in Cambridge and I hope the punting went well.

      My husband and I did the tour as all the colleges were closed and we reckoned this would fill the void. We were not disappointed. Jo was knowledgable and had plenty of little stories to bring the history to life. When we booked we thought it was pricey but it was worth every penny as we learnt so much more than we would have learnt self guiding and it was a lot of fun too.

      My experience was awesome because our tour guide Olivia was great! She was confident, knowledgeable and witty. She made the walk memorable and made sure everyone was catered for she answered all the questions. She made occasional jokes so we can all remember the information she shared with us.

      My brother was visiting me in Cambridge for the first time and although I’ve been here for a couple of years, we both got so much out of the tour! With humour and authenticity, Dick shared a wonderful balance of history, culture and entertaining anecdotes - It was great to learn more of life in Cambridge, both past and present, and I’ve come to see the city under a new light. Truly tailored to our interests and questions, I can only praise and recommend the tour. Time flew by! Oh and be sure to listen out for the Cambridge student prank…
      Thank you, Dick, for such an engaging tour! Jen and Gui

      Outstanding tour tailored to our specific needs and interests. Jo is a phenomenal guide with extensive knowledge of the fascinating history and culture of the city. She is friendly and engaging and makes it all come to life in a thoroughly entertaining way. Whatever you hope to get out of your day in Cambridge, I am confident you won’t be disappointed if you choose this tour. It exceeded our expectations in every way!

      My son has applied to the university and, although we only booked the tour the day before we went, Jo was able to organise us entry to the college he applied through, even though it is not one that is normally on the route. She walked us past the faculty buildings where he will study if he is accepted, gave us specific information about the subjects he is interested in and answered all his questions. She is not only remarkably well versed in the history of the place, she is also well connected and up to date with what is current.

      We were a diverse group and, although she tailored the tour to my son’s specific needs, Jo also managed to make it relevant and exciting for the rest of us. Everyone had a wonderful, memorable experience.

      Jo was also very accommodating and helpful in practical ways. She met us at a place and time that suited us, gave me directions and parking suggestions and pointed out other places that might interest us after the tour.

      All in all a fantastic afternoon. I cannot recommend highly enough!

      Peter gave us a very entertaining tour of central Cambridge. He was very professional, answered every question and combined history with interesting facts about the city and its residents. I would highly recommend hiring Peter for your tour of Cambridge.

      We booked a private tour with Jo, who was a lovely person and made us feel very at ease. The tour was a good balance of city history, modern and historic anecdotes and university info and she brought everything to life for us in a way which made it all very digestible. Having a private guide was very relaxing, we stopped for ice cream and asked lots of questions. It was well worth the money. I also recommend booking two hours, or more, as there is a lot to see.

      We Toured with Jo. Beforehand we were asked whether we had a particular focus - we did, since our daughter is a potential applicant to uni, and open days were not available.Jo clearly tailored the review, brought some specific relevant materials and delivered a brilliant tour. The 90 minutes flew by and we could easily have filled 2 hours and more. Excellent value,

      Jo, our tour guide, is great! We got to Cambridge a little late and She waited for us so we could have a quick lunch. Jo is knowledgeable. We particularly like her showing us how to read the stories of the stained glass windows of the King’s college chapel.

      It was such a pleasure to meet you and exciting to have a Guizhou connection. King's college chapel is so special. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your tour of Cambridge.

      We did a 2 hour tour with Jo on a Saturday afternoon, it was absolutely fantastic! We were a family group of 4 adults who all live locally and found the tour to be fascinating. We learnt a great deal about the city we live in and were impressed with Jo's knowledge and the variety of topics covered. The pre-tour organisation was super helpful and I couldn't recommend this company enough for your tour. We will be using their services again in the future.
