Really enjoyed the tour. Very informative it last around 1 hour 30 minutes. The guide was lovely. I think her name was Jess. I would defiantly recommend this to others. The only thing that was disappointing was my partner and I would of liked to have a tour in the colleges but unfortunately everything was closed.

Many thanks for your review, I'm not sure if this was one of our tours are they are generally 2 hours long and include college visits.

Additionally we were to be sent tickets via email which never arrived. When I... More

As you are booking a ticket at a specific time and date with a limited... More

We did the 2 hour walking tour of King's College and the backs of the colleges which was just outstanding. Our guide Irene was outstanding and highly knowledgeable. Even on a freezing day, she made it a lovely afternoon. Highly recommend this guided experience of a beautiful city!

My tour with Ms. Sibella Laing was one of the best guided tours I have ever had. She is knowledgeable, nice, bright and pleasant. She enriched us with information based on a rich and personal experience, and I could not expect a better tour.
