We were delighted to be in a small group of just 9 of us with Khai Khai. She was really well informed and taught us a great deal of the history and odd quirky snippets about Cambridge. We have been to Cambridge many times before but were delighted and surprised to learn so much. We would definitely recommend this to anyone even for those who have some knowledge of the city.

We did the tour today, a rainy Sunday in October, but our guide Catherine was truly excellent. She was engaging and gave our group a great understanding of the history of Cambridge and its universities. We visited beautiful areas around the universities and despite not being able to go inside at this time (due to COVID) it was a good experience. Catherine also shared some interesting facts about the universities and her own experience which made the tour even better.
Highly recommended, thanks again!

Francesco did a tremendous job for us. He obviously knew his subject very well and delivered it using humour and candour.
The only thing that was missing in our opinion was speakers because at times we were at the back and could not hear him...otherwise excellent...and we wish him the best with his Architectural studies

This was a fantastic guided tour. It was well worth paying for the walking tour, Kings College Chapel entry, and punting tour. Our walking tour guide, Francisco, was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us lots of great tips for further exploring the city after the 90 minute tour. Our punting tour guide, Archie, had lots of funny anecdotes that made the punt very enjoyable ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a humerous but informative tour of the exterior of some Colleges (Co-vid prevented entry). The buildings were beautiful but equally, were matched by descriptions of how students apply for, are selected and are accommodated within the Cambridge student community. Who knew Trinity College was top dog and also currently ranks 4th in landowning within the UK?? From the cost of a three course student dinner to the deliberate mix within allocated accommodation, it was a wonderful insight into the thought and care by the University into placing and supporting their community. A wonderful place to visit and we are glad we chose this particular tour. The second part of the tour was a punt on the Cam which was brilliant also. Fantastic value for money. Well done Ari!

Very enjoyable and informative tour today with Catherine (law graduate from Gonville and Caius). It was great to get a student perspective on the city and also loads of very interesting information about the colleges and the famous alumni. Would highly recommend this.

Good guide, shame that the price for Kings College Chapel is so high booking it through this company. Found out later booking it through Kings College website is roughly 10 pounds cheaper (nearly 50%). The guide from this company only shows you the entrance to the chapel, then leaves you by yourself - not worth the extra expense.

Really enjoyed this tour, have visited Cambridge often and usually go punting as the view along the backs never gets boring. The weather wasn’t great so we thought we’d try a walking tour instead. This was a great choice, we had Olivia as our tour guide and we were her first group. She did a great job, Olivia was really informative and interesting with lots of information and stories about Cambridge. Was great to be able to ask a Cambridge student all the questions I’ve often wondered. Would definitely recommend.

A really great guided walk with our guide Olivia . Nuggets of Uni history along with humorous tales of student life . Healthy disrespect for stuffy old traditions whilst valuing the legacy of the past . Great way to get to know Cambridge. Shame some of the college porters were so rude …. As we peeped through closed gates . Very good value . In this time of contactless payments make sure you have cash to tip the hardworking well informed guides .

I had an absolutely wonderful time on the tour of Cambridge led by Cristina! Her expertise and passion for the city's history shone through as she guided us through its enchanting streets and iconic sites. Cristina's engaging storytelling made the experience both educational and entertaining. This tour was a delightful way to immerse myself in Cambridge's beauty and culture, and I can't thank Cristina enough for making it such a memorable experience.
