Very good way to see a lot of stuff in Cambridge in a short space of time. Our guide Thomas was superb at providing lots of first-hand insight and detail, while being super friendly and approachable the whole time. Very much recommend that anyone visiting Cambridge take this tour to gain a better understanding of how it is to live there and attend the University.

Our guide Sum is super knowledgeable yet friendly and patient with us even though my wife was recovering from a fall recently and we had to walk quite slowly. We enjoyed the tour thoroughly and gained much knowledge about the colleges in Cambridge. Definitely value for money and worth joining the tour

We hadden een erg leuke alumni: Charlot: ze nam ons op een erg leuke manier mee in de achtergronden van de "Colleges". Ze wist er erg veel van en deed erg haar best om dat aan ons over te dragen. Het was haar eerste guide op 10-10-2022. Heel erg de moeite waarde.
