Francesco was a fab guide, loads of interesting history with good delivery and a great sense of humour. I have been to Cambridge loads of times but this is the first time I’ve done a walking history tour. My husband and I loved it. Due to Covid we didn’t go in any colleges but there was plenty to see and hear about regardless.
