It was a really nice experience with an exceptionally nice weather on a November month. It was my first time to travel to Cambridge and learned more about its rich history as the university town of UK. The tour guide, Rowena, was a natural. She really is knowledgeable about the university and looked after quite well with the group. I literally fell in love with Cambridge whilst on tour-such an amazing experience.

With 13 participants, the group was a good size, so that everyone could ask their questions and also heard the questions of the others. Marina was an excellent guide: knowledgeable and extremely personable and polite. There were no questions left unanswered and interesting stories about every college. As a German, it was simply impossible to know the many prominent graduates from the various colleges.
