Sophie was such an amazing tour guide! I learned so much about Cambridge in just an hour :) It was my 4th visit already in the city but felt like my first time. Hope she can guide more tourists like me who are hungry for facts!! :)

Charlotte was our guide for the tour. We enjoyed the tour and got lots of interesting information and insights into the application process which was very useful. Charlotte was knowledgable, friendly and accommodating.

Our guide (Sum) was great and she knew a ton about the different colleges and the history of Cambridge! Prepare to walk quite a bit but we really enjoyed it!

Our guide Tommy was exceptional - just the person we needed to meet! Thank you to him for being honest and inspirational.

The tour was very interesting and Becky, our guide, was super nice, knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions!
