It was very interesting to see the students` life.We visited Pembroke College, Trinity College, Queen`s College.Also it was funny to see a tour on punt during the rain(we were on the bank).At the very beginning of the tour we saw an original clock with a monster eating the time. The rain was the part of our tour.It was an excellent experience to see Cambridge though the eyes of a native.Thank you very much.

An interesting walking tour giving highlights of Cambridge University and a good insight into the life of a student. Should have been 90 Minutes long but we overran by at least 30 Minutes which was not a problem at all. Some people did leave early as they had other things planned. Our guide was very informative and friendly.

Really nice and informative tour. The visit is a walking tour in and out of several Cambridge Colleges. Our Student guide, David, was very knowledgeable and punctuated the visit with interesting facts about student life in Cambridge. The sun was out and the autumn colors made things even better. We all really enjoyed David’s tour and Cambridge. We strongly recommend this tour.
