very interesting day trip

Very interesting day trip to Oxford and Cambridge, each with a 20-30 minute tour of the city centers and 2 hours each for free exploration. Highlight entry to Great St. Marys in Cambridge with ascent to the tower. Fantastic view of the city. Very friendly driver and very friendly guide or friendly tour guide. The tickets were not needed, we were on a list of the tour guide with full names and were picked up at the station on time.

This was a wonderful tour where we got to see two amazing university campuses. Both towns were beautiful and the tour guide Christina was very friendly and knowledgable. I'd highly recommend anyone who is interested in seeing either of these universities to take the tour. Be prepared. It is a long day, and requires a great deal of walking. If you're up for the challenge, don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
