With 13 participants, the group was a good size, so that everyone could ask their questions and also heard the questions of the others. Marina was an excellent guide: knowledgeable and extremely personable and polite. There were no questions left unanswered and interesting stories about every college. As a German, it was simply impossible to know the many prominent graduates from the various colleges.

A lovely all round tour, we was slightly late and I cannot fault the lady who guided us around as she made the call to ensure we was still going which I appreciate as some people may have just took off. So thank you so sorry I cannot remember the ladies name. Learnt so much about cambridge and would 100% recommend this tour to anyone, worth every penny.

Very comprehensive and informative tour. The price doesn't break your bank account. Our guide PhD student was excellent!

Superb guide. She took care of the group and was hilarious at times. Highly recommended.

Very Professional explanation of history of Cambridge. Love it.
