Great way to see the best bits of Cambridge

On the down side, this by tour is fairly expensive and we had trouble with quite a few of the headphone sockets for the audio and had to move several times. On the plus side... read more

We were visiting for two days so it was ideal to get on a tour bus, we went round twice then decided where we wanted to get off

We've done many hop on, hop off tours and find they provide a basic introduction to get acquainted with a city. This one does just that, but often from afar as a lot of the downtown portion is not on the actual travel route. Also, we would have preferred a little more historical or local information rather than the abbreviated... More

On the down side, this by tour is fairly expensive and we had trouble with quite a few of the headphone sockets for the audio and had to move several times. On the plus side, this is probably the best way to see the sights of Cambridge, get your bearings and learn a bit about the cities history. The full... More

We have been on several other city sightseeing tours in various cities so decided to go on this one as a way of getting to know Cambridge and you can get off and back on later at stops. We got a reduction for a combined sightseeing and punting tour and lasts as the bus ticket is for 24 hours we... More

A "hop on, hop off" guided tour. Well organised. Each passenger is given their own set of earphones (no extra charge, included in the ticket price) to plug into the sockets next to the seat for a running commentary along the tour. Started off lovely weather but suddenly, part way round the city….POURING RAIN!!! DELUGE!! Was unexpected so all top... More

You can pick the bus up from so many locations and the bus takes you to 19 different stops. The bus does have the tour in 8 languages but I did feel sad that there wasn't an actual tour guide like Liverpool or other cities. It is head phones only. The ticket is valid for 24 hours so it is... More

I don't think it is worth the money. It is ok and it does take you all over, but Cambridge is a city better viewed by foot.

My wife and always take these red bus tours, I think they are the best way to find all the interesting places to visit later. This particular tour was approx. 1 1/4 hour long, and went a little way out of the city to the American Cemetry, as well as all around Cambridge. Well worth doing.

Thank Aljen
