About Cambridge Tour Guides
We provide fun and family-friendly walking tours of historic Cambridge. We are fully trained registered Green Badge guides. Only Cambridge Green Badge guides are allowed to take groups inside the Cambridge colleges. We offer tours ranging from one to three hours. The most popular length of tour is two hours, which allows time to visit at least one of the historic colleges. This might be the world-famous King's College Chapel, with its many great treasures. Queens' College is very picturesque and is a good example of how the early colleges were founded and developed through the centuries. St John's College and Pembroke are also very popular with visitors. On our tours you will hear about the many famous, and infamous, people that helped to make Cambridge what it is today. We will also tell you about the story of the townspeople and show you iconic buildings such as St Bene't's Saxon church (built around 1030) and the Eagle Pub, renowned for its Royal Air Force bar. Above all, we aim to make our tours entertaining and enjoyable for all ages and interests.
