Our tour guide was very informative and it was interesting to see the different colleges at Cambridge. After the tour, our guide went out of her way to show us how to get our transport out.
Great trip, really interesting details and information, with a guide that both personalised and went the extra mile.....would highly recommend. Has fired me up to return to Cambridge, can't wait to discover more. Thank you.
Terrific walking tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Had overseas visitors with us who where retired professors. This tour was really interesting for them.
