The tour was amazing! I went with my parents and we had a great time. Our guide was super cute and funny, he told us a lot of interesting stories behind the Cambridge University which made the tour even more awesome. Would recommend 100% and will definitely do the punting tour again!

It was a lovely activity & the guide Lewis did quite well to inform & entertain us with knowledge of the colleges. We were fortunate to be at the back so could hear well I’m not sure that people sat further away could though. Definitely worth doing though quite expensive at £75.

It was amazing, kinda wish it was more private- we assumed booking for 3 meant we wouldn't have to share but we still did with other groups It was still super fun, we're not really the type to usually opt-in for guided tours, but this one is a must for everyone. Our tour guide, Leaf was funny, he was interactive and wasn't the boring guided tour, instead made it quite fun sharing some exciting facts, that I surpringly still remember.
