I really appreciate how our guide raise her voice so we can hear her clearly. It’s a crowded path along the way. We had a little incident that there’s a fire alarm going on at the chapel and she handled it quickly and took good care of our needs. We went in later on our own when that’s open again. Very satisfied with her efforts and care for customers. Thanks, Hannah!

Richard was a highly educated and interesting guide who happened to be completing post-graduate studies at Cambridge in history, so really knew what he was talking about. We loved listening to the history as we walked around. Punting and the visit to Kings Chapel were also brilliant. Strongly recommend!

Fabulous guide Katie who was knowledgeable and sweet. Lots of steps on a hot day but she made sure we found the shade. Worth doing for the history and the modern day take - Katie just finished her Masters.

Our guide, Rosa, spoke very clearly and ensured we could all hear her. She had a very good grasp of history of Cambridge and the university. She was engaging and attentive to her group.

Lovely walking tour of Cambridge and learning more about the university. Kings Chapel is beautiful!
