Cambridge colleges are all closed & you can’t see anything. Our guide enriched the experience telling us about the education system history of colleges at many stops, No worries about getting lost or knowing what to see. As a scientist I enjoyed the history of the famous Cavendish labs have . I thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

This was absolutely the best tour possible and (after seeing some of the other tours) one of the best available. We would gladly do it again just to be able to absorb the clearly delivered, interesting and enjoyably intellectual perspectives of our guide (Sybil). We highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to enjoy their walking tour rather than just attend an exercise routine.

The guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant and facilitative of all the questions asked. The back stories she shared were infused with fun knowledge and that made the history more interesting. The fact that she was a past student of Cambridge meant she could shared first hand knowledge of campus life then and now. The walk was timely so everyone could keep up.
