Wonderful guide, and well structured walking tour. Only way to improve the tour would be to provide a small single page line drawn map of the old university area to each participant spas they can follow the route taken so as they can revisit any particular area after the tour concludes. I highly recommend this 2 hour walking tour.

Highly recommend this tour, guide was great and enjoyed the commentary. Tour gives context to the buildings and bring the Cambridge university story to life. We were late and thought we would miss the tour altogether but the office staff were very accommodating allowing us to catch up with the group. Great customer service.

Sonia was a very knowledgable guide. I enjoyed the information she gave about different parts of the university.

Great walk across the Cambridge main colleges and locations with a helpful and very kind guide.

Informative and interesting facts about Cambridge. Rowena was an excellent guide.
