About
Our walking tour takes in some of the famous colleges and historic sights of the city as you meander down quaint alleyways and tread the cobbled streets. You will hear quirky facts and stories of the colleges and their colourful alumni, all set within the context of English and world history, plus many fascinating tales of city life through the ages not generally mentioned in the guide books. We will take you to a church 1000 years old and reveal it’s hidden secret, down side streets to places of interest visitors don't normally see. You will go back in time to medieval Cambridge to discover how the University all started, visiting colleges over 700 years old and hearing their history. We will show you what it is to experience life as a student in a Cambridge College. All our tours are unique as we specialise in small groups and encourage interaction and questions

A Walking Tour de Force
Sep 2021
An informative, engaging and all round thoroughly intersting tour of Cambridge by Tim. On meeting he talked to everyone in the small group individually to see if they had any specific interets / time constraints and adapted to these as needed. The tour was interesting without being overwhelming and filled with lots of details about the colleges. Highly recommended!

A wonderful and informative tour of Cambridge
Sep 2021
What a brilliant way to see Cambridge! Tim was a very interesting and knowledgeable guide. He told us many facts but in such an engaging way it was easy to take it all in.
Tim was very humorous and mixed in anecdotes and jokes with the history, two and a half hours flew by!
He keeps the groups small and is very careful to keep his group away from too crowded places, we felt quite safe even though there were graduations occurring and quite a lot of people about.
I would highly recommend Tim and if you want to see Cambridge, he is the best guide to do so with.

Fantastic tour, personalised to take into account our interests.
Sep 2021
Would highly recommend a tour with Tim. Firstly we got nearly 2 1/4 hours packed with facts, anecdotes and history, so terrific value for money. Secondly the route and tour were adjusted slightly to take into account the particular interests of those on the tour. Not a whole scale change I should emphasise, just adjustments that made you feel valued and important and the reason why the tour was happening!

We were never rushed and we certainly never felt we were hearing a pre-prepared script. Cambridge is clearly a passion for Tim and it’s a privilege to spend time with such a personable and knowledgeable guide.

Aug 2021 • Friends
Tim has so much knowledge and a way of making it all very interesting and fun. This is the second walking tour we have done in Cambridge and wow this tour with Tim was the best. How to make a couple of hours just disappear hanging onto his every word. Fantastic don’t hesitate to book it’s well worth every penny.

Thank your comments, but in all honesty I have to inform you you did not come on a tour with me, so I can't take credit for your generous review and your kind words. I hope they find their rightful owner

Interesting and Fun
Really interesting couple of hours spent today walking around the colleges of Cambridge. So much history over such a short distance and so many centuries. Plenty of tales about the students and fellows of the Cambridge colleges, interspersed with the history. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Lovely way to learn about the city-a great tour
Brilliant trip- really great information. Tim kept in touch before and during the tour was very friendly, he is very knowledgeable about the historical facts and stories of the city but brings them to life in a very clear and interesting way. Very up to date on changes happening at the moment and his recommendations were spot on
