Full description
Explore the city with a friendly local who is passionate about their city and eager to share all the tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighborhood, find out about the best places to eat and buy groceries, the easiest ways to get around, and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel more comfortable with navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Once you've made your booking, your guide will get in touch with you to confirm all the details for the tour including the meeting place and time, language and your contact information, and also ask you some questions to get to know you better. Each tour is completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer (minimum: 2 hours).  During the walking tour you will have the option of taking public transportation or taxi to get around the city (at your expense). The guides are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travelers and share what they love about their city.  They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city.  Through conversations with your guide, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in Cambridge, learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.

Fathia is nice but doesn't know the city enough

We were disappointed and would have preferred to pay more but have a professional guide.

Very personable guide, but not well informed about local history, attractions, etc. The experience was clearly not what was advertised and we decided to conclude the tour early and make our way through town on our own.

Price-service not correct, too expensive, nice guide but not very credible.

The guide was certainly nice but he was not up to the amount of the service, 105 € for 2 adults and 2 children, few initiatives and approximate or even erroneous knowledge. We were disappointed because we were counting a lot on this visit to discover the city of Cambridge where we only stayed for the day. The problem is either the price which for the service deserved to be halved or the service which should have had more cultural, historical references, anecdotes, visits ...
