Highly recommend this tour, guide was great and enjoyed the commentary. Tour gives context to the buildings and bring the Cambridge university story to life. We were late and thought we would miss the tour altogether but the office staff were very accommodating allowing us to catch up with the group. Great customer service.

Wonderful guide, and well structured walking tour. Only way to improve the tour would be to provide a small single page line drawn map of the old university area to each participant spas they can follow the route taken so as they can revisit any particular area after the tour concludes. I highly recommend this 2 hour walking tour.

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.
