Excellent way to understand Cambridge
Lori_L

We enjoyed our walking tour. The guide did a good job of helping us with understanding the history and how the university worked. Some great stories that we still remember and have told friends. The punting tour was not included as the operator was not working so they gave us our money back for this portion.

Ari was an enthusiastic, humorous guide who led us expertly round the colleges. We learned many interesting facts. The weather was glorious which made the punt on the river fabulous. Our guide took us expertly along the river sharing his knowledge of Cambridge as we went. It was a lovely day, and a perfect way to see Cambridge.
