I went on a the Blue Badge tour entitled 'King's College and The Backs' on a cold but mostly sunny November day. The tour takes two hours but overran a little (though Jill, the guide, made clear to everyone that it wouldn't be rude to leave after the advertised time was up). Jill imparted real insight into the history of... More

Chris our guide quickly summed up our small group who already knew a bit about Cambridge and expanded our knowledge in a thorough but fun way. He was able to tell us so much about a large range of subjects and the two hours we spent in his company just flew past.

A good introduction to one of the Cambridge icons. Our guide, Gerald, was very knowledgeable, easy to understand, even when competing with the noise out on the streets, and passionate about the history of the College. The tour started with a quick visit to the Eagle Pub, a stop at the St Bene't's Church, and the old Cavendish Laboratory. The... More

We went to very nice areas on Cambridge but I think we could have more information on our walk. The guide took us to the pounting place and then went away. I didn't like the program and I think we could see/ know more. But it was good, I would do it again. The price was fair.

Although this tour was informative, I found the guide to be a bit on the dry side. She was not as upbeat as other walking tours I have taken throughout Europe. Regardless, I found her to be informative and the best way to see Cambridge in a few hours. Although it does have a cost, it does include sites that... More

This was the second time Cambridge Guide Liz Hodder gave my group of university students from the U.S. an introduction to Cambridge. She expertly tailored the tour and her introductions to colleges, chapels, pubs, historic homes and other landmarks to our academic needs while making sure that this was all done in an entertaining as well as scholarly fashion. We... More

I booked the King's and Backs tour last-minute, but because the King's College chapel was opening late that day, we toured Pembroke first, then the chapel, and a bit of the grounds behind King's. Our guide was Dr. Stephen Halliday, Pembroke alumnus (history major), former lecturer, and author! Guides who are history buffs are always great - and this was... More

We enjoyed our tour of Cambridge and the colleges. Lots of information on the history of the colleges and how the universities developed. The Kings college was so impressive and we had lots of interesting info on the stone work and the stained glass windows. A good tour for adults but I'd expect younger tourists might find it a bit...

Very good guide, very knowledgeable and very patient too. Even though our students were not very interested at first, she engaged them naturally and everyone enjoyed the tour. Thank you very much
