The leadership was very good. The guide was very professional. Has explained everything exactly and also very understandable for foreign visitors. Also included some punchlines to cheer you up.

We had never visited Cambridge before so this tour gave us a lot of interesting information in a memorable way without eating into too much of our short stay.
