My daughter and I booked this tour and it was the best part of our visit of Cambridge. We were delighted to find that there were only 6 of us on this tour (February), as we really had the chance to ask questions and speak with our guide. Our guide, Georgiana, was very friendly and really connected with each one... More

We were pleasantly surprised to end up on our own personal tour by sheer luck. We decided to do the Medieval Colleges Tour as we had seen the backs and Kings College previously in the day. We were so happy with our choice as Sibella was so knowledgeable on all aspects. She made the tour personal and answered all questions... More

We just a tour of Cambridge (King's College and the Backs), and our guide (Sophie Smiley) was excellent. She was knowledgable, well-spoken, and talked with love about the city she grew up in. Would definitely recommend!

I went to Cambridge with 17 year old French students, not all at ease with the English language. Maggie has been a wonderfully dedicated guide, paying attention to their level of understanding and tiredness. She could gain their attention by telling pleasant anecdotes and balancing carefully the moments of walking and those of focusing on precise architectural or historical elements.... More

A very interesting and informative visit with a guide called Ian. Avoid a wet or windy day as much of this tour is outside.

We took one of the official walking tours of Cambridge that you book from the Guildhall. Our guide was Steve and he gave us an excellent explanation of the history and development of the city and a lovely walk around some of the main sights. He gave us great anecdotes and information that you would not possibly be able to... More

Steve Robertson seems to know Cambridge as well as his pocket (as we French people say), and his pocket is indeed full of detailed stories about every college or church or famous student or royalty of any kind in Cambridge. He's also of great assistance when it comes to tell the ever-fascinating legend of how a tiny group of schoolmates... More

Our guide, Lottie, was very informed and my Australian guests and I had a wonderful tour. We were lucky that we were the only people on the tour and being the start of January there was a distinct lack of tourists and students. King's College was fantastic! All in all, a great way to see Cambridge after so many years... More

We organised a private group tour days ago for 9 of us prior to a conference that we were attending. It was a rather cold and wet day, but our tour guide Steve was on excellent form, showing us Queen's College (a must see in my mind), then Pembroke followed by the history of the Corpus Christi clock, Kings College...
