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.

Toby our guide was knowledgeable, polite and friendly. Gave us many insights into Cambridge college life and as he is a history student, he gave us fantastic historical insights about Cambridge. Told us funny stories about the trouble Cambridge alumnae got into as well.

Sonia was a very knowledgable guide. I enjoyed the information she gave about different parts of the university.

Great walk across the Cambridge main colleges and locations with a helpful and very kind guide.

Good tour and good value for money. Just the right amount of time.
