Francesco led us on the guided tour of the city and did a wonderful job. Not only did he have a lot of knowledge about the history of the city and the various colleges, he also had a great sense of humour. Francesco was a brilliant guide, we really enjoyed the visit with him. Everything was well organised and we felt well looked after. Would highly recommend

We really enjoyed our Cambridge Walking tour with the alumnus Claire! She was not only informative but a delight throughout the tour. I particularly enjoyed the parts where she talked about women education at Cambridge and it’s history. I also enjoyed some stories she shared being a student at this amazing place! Thank you, Claire and also thanks for this picture! My parents will have a great memory for India!

Nice walking tour which gives you a quick touch of all the key historic sites that Cambridge has to offer (colleges, chapel, bridges, etc.). I’ve given it a 4-star (well truly, it should be 3.5 stars) due to two reasons: first, I felt David was a little rushed to complete it all in 90 minutes, walking quickly, not stopping for photos, etc. Quick input - you’ve explained it, now give people 60s to click a picture and note down what they’ve seen to remember it or keep a memory. Even when he told people that we should click a picture at Clare bridge, he continued walking to the next point. Secondly, I believe that the group was too huge which eventually didn’t make it worth the money I’ve paid. There were close to 30 people on my walking tour. Agree it was the Easter Weekend; and hence the crowd, but when I’ve paid 21 p.p., there ought to be a smaller group, and some attention to detail. Alumni tours should limit the admissions in each tour to max 12-15 people, nothing higher. Cheers.
