BECOME A TIME TRAVELER In just an hour and a half, walk through a thousand years of human history: from an Anglo-Saxon church tower to a contemporary (and controversial) clock that doesn’t even tell the time properly. See the rooms where Newton wrote his theory of gravity and hear the truth behind the apple tree myth. Visit the pub where Watson and Crick announced one of the greatest discoveries of the twentieth century. Marvel at some of the greatest examples of Gothic and Neoclassical architecture in the world. Inspiring, baffling, and downright outrageous: Cambridge is a city full of stories waiting to be told. THE STUDENT’S STORY Cambridge is nothing without its students, and it’s the students who make our walking tours so special. Combining a deep passion for the city’s history and architecture with the knowledge and experience of an insider, all our tour guides are either graduates or current students of the University of Cambridge. You hear all about what the students really get up to – from “college parents” to lavish May Balls and the dreaded all-nighters in-between. Which college is the poshest one, and which is the richest? Which one has a communist flag in its bar? As well as hearing it all from the horse’s mouth, you get to see inside up to two colleges, with highlights including the beautiful Pembroke College Chapel and gardens. This is the real Cambridge as experienced from within the college walls. Our classic 90-minute Cambridge tour covers some of the following highlights: Trinity Hall College Trinity College The Wren Library Corpus Christi College Pembroke College Queens’ College King’s College Clare College The Senate House Gonville and Caius College St Catherine’s College Great St Mary’s Church The Eagle Pub The Corpus Clock The Round Church Famous town stories, and more… This is a shared walking tour conducted in English.

We have really enjoyed punting, it is the perfect way to explore the city and see all the main attractions. Our guide was very friendly and provided some really interesting facts throughout the tour. I would highly recommended it to anyone visiting Cambridge.

Very good experience, the guide was very informative. It was our first time punting and we would recommend it to others who are visiting Cambridge to get to see the area, and understand the culture.

Extremely flexible service and we couldn’t have wished for a more knowledgable and interesting guide
