What people are saying about Pembroke College
Leah captivated us from the moment she began. With her clear tones, projecting beautifully above the surrounding noise, and a real sense of presence and authority and what she was saying, she introduced us to the University from the perspective of a student, but with the expertise of a Don! She has a way of putting things which makes them come to life, so that not one moment in her well-timed talks did my attention flag. It was also a very well shaped tour, with just the right amount of walking in between a well judged number of stops, in which people could also perch on benches or other places to sit if they were tired or elderly. Could not recommend this more.
We really enjoyed the walking tour. The places we visited were beautiful and our guide was really engaging and friendly. Unfortunately we had to leave the walking tour a little early to make it to a punting time that would fit in with our train home. The boat then left 15 minutes late because we were waiting on other guests - even though there were numerous boats free. That meant we had to run the whole way back to the train station to make sure we caught out train.... which was a little frustrating. Other than that - a good day out in Cambridge.
Highly recommend this tour of the colleges. Melissa is so easy to listen to. She was knowledgeable and added a few extras on the history as well as the entry requirements and some useful tips which was great as my son (16) was reluctant to visit and has now been inspired to aim for Cambridge and study Medicine. Yes, that's how good it was :)
We had a fantastic tour guide - Melissa - who was extremely knowledgable and took us to all the key sites in the city. Melissa made the tour entertaining and was able to answer all the additional questions the group threw at her. Would highly recommend this tour.
Our walking tour guide Eleanor was great. Very friendly and told us lots of interesting facts about places of interest on the tour, including anecdotes of alumni and the colleges, and insights into student life.
