Jo took my sister and I on a tour of Cambridge that suited our physical needs and we got to see everthing that was important to us and more. She was full of interesting facts and amusing anecdotes and as we were attending a wedding the next day at Kings College Chapel she made sure to get us entry tickets to look around the Chapel. So worth a visit, she showed us how to read the stories in the stained glass windows and pointed out some amusing things we would have missed if we had visited alone. We can't thank Jo enough for making the beginning of our first visit to Cambridge a complete pleasure. If you are visiting the area we highly recommend booking a tour. Just tell Cambride on Foot in advance the sort of things you are interested in and they will make it happen. Go to Cambridge. It is fabulous 😘

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.

I took my mum to Cambridge for her birthday. As many are still cautious of being in close confines an outside walking tour seemed like a great way to safely enjoy the city. Booking with Cambridge on foot was so easy, they were really quick to respond and confirm and made the arrangements to meet so straight forward for strangers to the city. Jo was a wonderful tour guide, knowledgeable and very keen to ensure that we were given any information on any topics we were particularly interested in. Jo even assisted in enquiring and securing our punting tickets ahead of our arrival which was above and beyond our expectations and really appreciated. The colleges were closed but you could easily attend this tour on multiple occasions focusing on different areas each time. We will be back to see the colleges when all re- open. Thanks jo and team we had a great day!! Victoria and Trudi

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!

Dick Matthews was our guide for today. I would definitely recommend Dick for his in-depth local and historical knowledge of Cambridge. Dick was very friendly and relaxed and gave us a contextual history lesson on the beautiful buildings littered around Cambridge. The weather was shocking, it poured with rain but Dick didn’t detract from fully escorted walking tour. 10/10 or 5 stars without a doubt

I am so pleased you enjoyed our "walk in the rain"!! Hard to believe that Cambridge is reportedly the driest city in the UK!. It was a real pleasure to meet you both and I hope you return one day so that we can visit the colleges and chapels when they reopen. Best wishes.

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

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.

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.

This tour was amazing. I learned so much from our wonderful guide. My friends and I had been at Cambridge for 3 months but did not know most things. Our guide was incredible and extremely knowledgeable. We learned about both the history of Cambridge as a town and as a university. We also visited King’s College Chapel and were impressed by all the information about it. In addition, some of the highlights from our tour were the Cavendish Lab, Corpus Christi Clock, the history behind women’s struggle for education at Cambridge, and The Eagle. On your tour, make sure to ask about cambridge night climbers! I left this tour feeling significantly more knowledgeable and recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about it, no matter how long you’ve lived here.

We were in a small family group consisting of 3 generations doing a walking tour of Cambridge with Jo. She made the experience very enjoyable despite the grey, chilly weather. We were taken through some of the lesser known and quieter areas of the town and university on a 2 hour tour and regaled with interesting and entertaining facts and anecdotes throughout. Everybody enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone.
