We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, led by Chris. He gave us a clear history of Cambridge, in the context of how the university fits in. I would recommend this tour very highly.

We will never forget Tony. What an amazing chap, full of energy, knowledge wit and a touch of sarcasm! We absolutely loved the whole 90 minutes of his company, listening to gems and snippets of information and gleaning knowledge of Cambridge, that without him, we would never know. We particularly enjoyed sitting with him in King’s College Chapel. Hearing detail of this most special place from him will stay with us forever. Thank you Tony. You made a beautiful day a day that will stay etched in our hearts and minds forever. And Peterhouse and 31 and 1209 🤩

Thank you so much Pamela for a very informative and entertaining guided walk. From start to finish it was engaging and revealed aspects of ‘hidden’ Cambridge we would never have discovered on our own. We highly recommend anyone visiting Cambridge to seek out Pamela who is not only extremely knowledgeable but clearly loves sharing what she knows about this historic city.

Tony is a superb tour guide. His knowledge of Cambridge is vast and he always comes up with very interesting facts and due to his effervescent personality, keeps everyone engaged and interested at all times. Whether you are a visitor to Cambridge or live here permanently, you should definitely do a tour with Tony .

Our guide, Pamela, was so friendly, knowledgable and informative that despite some pretty miserably wet weather my wife and I both absolutely loved the tour. She collected us from our hotel promptly and explained what we would do. We had a reasonable idea about Cambridge and it’s history, or so we thought, but quickly realised that our knowledge really was quite superficial. The first stop on our tour was Emmanuel college and straight away Pamela was enlightening us about the history and origins of the colleges. We saw several colleges on our walking tour including Kings, Trinity, Corpus Christi, Downing, and Gonville & Caius, However Cambridge is not just the University. It has a been a successful trading town since Roman and Viking times and even before and everywhere we went she had illuminating knowledge about its history and evolution as well as the ‘gown and the town’ relationship. Rather than steal her or her colleagues thunder I will let you enjoy the learning experience. I heartily recommend this as one of the best things you can do when you visit Cambridge. Total tour time about 90 minutes, but a lifetime of knowledge..
