    Absolutely fantastic tour with Josh punting on the River Cam. Fun and informative - really recommend. Comfy and enjoyable boat and an added bonus of the Pimms bar on the river while punting. Thanks Josh and the Cambridge Punting Co.

    Good overview of the central area. Easy walk for older travelers and families with small children. We had Charlie as our guide and they were lovely and patient with our questions. Especially good for families with kids interested in applying to the university as you have alot of time to ask specific questions of the guide…

    Tom was our guide and captain for the punting. Awesome views around the university and this a must do attraction. Tom guided the boat very well. Our seats were behind so we couldn’t hear Tom very well. I would suggest to take middle row seats for a better experience.

    Absolutely lovely!! The guy doing our tour knew loads about the local area and was very confident in what he was doing. Boat was nicer than the rest I’d seen. Highly recommend!

    We had a private punting tour this weekend as part of a hen do celebration. We needed two boats as we were a large party and they very kindly sent both our boats down the river together so we could still all chat as a group. The staff were really accommodating and lovely, and they couldn’t have been more helpful.
    On the punts our punters were hilarious, they really entered into the hen party spirit and made it so fun and enjoyable. We can’t recommend them enough if you’re looking for an amazing activity to do with a group!

    Brilliant guide, Johnny, who was very knowledgeable( answered all the questions) as well as having a sense of humour. We learnt a lot about the various places we stopped at which we wouldn't have know had we visited on our own.

    Very enjoyable & we would recommend booking this walking tour.

    Tony Rodgers has a passion for Cambridge which brings the City to life when he talks about it. The tour is both fun and very interesting. It is well-balanced, with a nice mix of serious history and stories of student antics. Tony is willing to vary the content to suit the interests of his audience. We live near Cambridge and have visited it for many years - we still learned things and saw things that were new to us. This is a very good way to learn a lot about the City in a short time. I strongly recommend it.

    Overall, our tour Oxford and Cambridge was pretty great. Both universites are so historic and worth a visit.

    We had a very attentive and helpful guide (her name escapes me but she used a yellow ducky umbrella to help us keep track of her in crowds). She had a smaller Spanish speaking group within our mainly English speaking tour group and she did a great job accommodating and helping both groups - including translating into Spanish for them.

    Regrettably, what was very unpleasant were the rides from London to Cambridge, Cambridge to Oxford and then Oxford back to London. We took a tour a few days earlier to Stonehenge and the ride was just fine. But on this visit to Oxford and Cambridge, our driver had a very "stop-and-go"/herky-jerky way of driving that made both my wife and I extremely uncomfortable and motion sick. Based on our other bus tours around London and other parts of England, this style of driving was totally unpleasant and distracted from both the countryside and the otherwise amazing aspects of this bus tour!

    Our guide was informative and attentive as we saw the beautiful sites around both historic universities and towns. The frankly horrible driving of the driver was the only portion of this drive that was not at all enjoyable. If you are someone who struggles with motion/travel sickness you may just want to ask your driver to keep that in mind.

    Lovely punting tour, a must do when in Cambridge! Slightly more expensive than other companies (£60 for two adults on a shared tour) but a proper dock to get on and off and better seating. Informative and fun.

    Really informative and interesting. Well exceeded my expectations. The guide had studied history at Cambridge and gave us lots of history about the various colleges. She was clear and concise and although we were a fairly big group she was very easy to hear and the tour flowed very well, action packed with snippets and interesting anecdotes. Would definitely recommend. Btw although its free, a tip is requested and I left a £10 as it was so good.

    We very much enjoyed hearing a number of interesting ghost stories by our tour guide Stacy. It was great to walk around Cambridge in the evening and visit unknown places like a haunted book shop!

    We think that this 5-day excursion to Wales and Yorkshire was perfect in every way. Well almost. There were a couple of cloudy, drizzly days, but nothing to dampen our spirits or make the countryside any less spectacular.

    Even though our group consisted of 14, leaving only two empty seats, the van accommodated us well. We 14 were ages 12 to 80 and hailed from Australia, USA, Canada, and the UK.

    We’ve taken similar excursions in the past and feel that a good driver-guide is all important. Russ way exceeds “good”. He is well-read, more than able to discuss UK past and present, and very entertaining. His humor and sunny disposition make for pleasant travel all around. (No doubt his modesty would beg us to stop here.)

    He created a comfortable atmosphere in which to get acquainted with one another. During longer periods between stops, he provided a delightful background of musical recordings. He was flexible in regard to our preferences and took the more scenic routes whenever possible. On the last evening together he planned a dinner for us in a spectacular moors setting.

    While our destinations were lovely and didn’t disappoint, Russ knew how to make each one much more than just a “place I’ve been”.

    Thanks, Rabbies for a great trip!

    We had made plans for a guided tour with Jo but she had to reorganize the tour with another guide. The communication with Jo was perfect: she gave advice and adapted to what we wanted to do in Cambridge.
    Our guide was very knowledgable. Her enthusiasm and her great knowledge made us experience a really memorable visit of Cambridge. Our teenage sons were impressed by the whole visit. We felt that time was flying.
