Laura was an amazing tour guide for our trip to Greenwich and Cambridge! I’m a student at the University of Sussex and my mom, and a family friend, had travelled from Canada to visit for my graduation. Despite the trip including 25 international summer school students, Laura kept everyone on track and engaged. She was incredibly informative with personal stories and about life in Greenwich! She knew a lot about Cambridge and directed us around the city. Her walking tours were a fantastic pace and not to difficult for my adult travellers! The punting was an amazing experience and I’m glad Laura encouraged us to take the trip. It was another mini tour and super relaxing! We will definitely be signing up to another Discovery Tour if we’re back in the UK one day.
