My uni tour was led by Joe, it was a good experience getting to know the lesser known facts, fun stories and history of the various places we visited as part of the tour. I would suggest everyone to go for a guided tour around the city by a student who will have such detailed information of the places and give you a sneak peek of the student life.

Highly informative and highly enjoyable. Our tour guide, Emma, was incredibly friendly and answered our many many questions with great enthusiasm and detail. Would highly recommend the private prospective student tour to anyone keen on applying to Cambridge University, and we cannot thank Emma enough for her excellent guidance and service.

Highly recommend this walk + tour! Chris was an excellent guide, and was full of fascinating information about Cambridge. The punting tour was a great way to end off the day. The hot water bottles were a great extra touch!

Sum was great! She gave us insight details about key buildings and interesting stories! She was also very friendly and welcoming. I'd recommend taking the Kings College tour; it's worth seeing this from the inside!

Informative, welcoming tour!! Francesco was a consummate, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Highly recommended!!
