We booked a 2 hour walking tour with Sonja. It began with a visit to the stunning Chapel of King's College. Then we visited the exteriors of several other colleges and key buildings in the centre and walked along the picturesque Backs. There were only 10 guests in the group, which was the perfect size and quite manageable. It was an informative and enjoyable tour with a very knowledgeable, friendly and humorous guide. Sonja is a local woman and a scholar of Ancient Greek, so she could give us a lot of insight into university life and the history of the city. I would definitely recommend this tour.

This was a very good informative tour with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide (Sonya) who told us loads of interesting history and clearly loves the city. Admission into Kings College Chapel was a highlight and we were given plenty of time in there. The tour took in many colleges and also the surrounding area and was at a good but not too fast pace. Very good value for money
