What people are saying about Cambridge, England

Excellent tour run by graduate student. Moved along quickly as lots to see but enjoyed immensely and got a good sense of the college. Boat tour was amazing! Buy the extra ticket to see the chapel - well worth it.

Well organised company. Our guide and punter Daniel was so knowledgeable we learnt a great deal about the history of the colleges. He was funny, kind and very polite. Would do it again any day.

Punter Chris was a pro. The whole journey was both informative and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you Chris!

Nice little trip on the cam. We’ll worth doing at least once. Probably best not to do a self drive.

Amazing guide! Boat was clean and everything was very efficiently dealt with.
