Very good way to see a lot of stuff in Cambridge in a short space of time. Our guide Thomas was superb at providing lots of first-hand insight and detail, while being super friendly and approachable the whole time. Very much recommend that anyone visiting Cambridge take this tour to gain a better understanding of how it is to live there and attend the University.

Highly informative and highly enjoyable. Our tour guide, Emma, was incredibly friendly and answered our many many questions with great enthusiasm and detail. Would highly recommend the private prospective student tour to anyone keen on applying to Cambridge University, and we cannot thank Emma enough for her excellent guidance and service.

Our guide Sum is super knowledgeable yet friendly and patient with us even though my wife was recovering from a fall recently and we had to walk quite slowly. We enjoyed the tour thoroughly and gained much knowledge about the colleges in Cambridge. Definitely value for money and worth joining the tour

Sum was great! She gave us insight details about key buildings and interesting stories! She was also very friendly and welcoming. I'd recommend taking the Kings College tour; it's worth seeing this from the inside!

Chris was enthusiastic, patient, knowledgable and humourous we enjoyed how professional the whole experience was. Thank you
