What people are saying about Cambridge, UK

Great activity. The tour was very pleasant. Even though I understand the guide was involved feeding us with comments and anecdotes, we'd have appreciated some quiet time to enjoy the calm and beauty that can only be experimented fom the canal. Maybe not trying so hard and overwarming tourists with numerous Historical dates and names? Still deeply recommended. Thanks :)

Great way to spend an evening in Cambridge. We took a family member who was visiting from the US and we all thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Go during sunset- less crowded on the river and beautiful lighting!

We had a great time!!! Our guide was very good and also an excellent driver!!! It us must experience and from our point if view it seems to be the best place to choose from all they have in the area

Excellent 45 minute tour of the river with college on both sides. Our guide gave a useful overview of the colleges as well as some good insights into their histories. Extremely enjoyable overall !

This was a fantastic experience! I highly recommend!
