Mary Forster-Lewis was amazing. We totally loved her guiding us through the city, the information was given in an interesting, relevant, structured discussion type of guide, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Titbits of info about universities and the lives of the students current and past. Mary's vast knowledge of Cambridge meant the tour was interesting from the minute it started until the final minute. Hugely enjoyable.

I would recommend doing this trip at start of day as it helped me orientate myself and decide which bits I wanted to return to. Dr Sonja was a wealth of information and was able to answer all our questions. She also recommended some other things to do that we would have missed had she not recommended them. We came away feeling a lot more knowledgable about Cambridge and it’s beautiful colleges.

Claudia was a lovely friendly well informed guide who really enjoyed her job. We saw lots of colleges and sights of Cambridge centre and heard a lot interesting facts and information about the history and current state of Cambridge university. P

It was a lovely experience though it was raining when we had it. Our punting guide Thomas or Adam (forgot his name) was really so knowlegeable and with good sense of humour. Cambridge is very beautiful especially in autumn! A must try.

If you want to hear the commentary DO NOT SIT AT THE FRONT. Due to the plastic COVID protection screens in place you won’t hear a thing. I gave up straining to hear after five minutes. This applies to all tours and not just this one.
