June (our guide) was easy to find in front of King's College and after a quick intro was off to tell us lots of great facts, stories, conspiracies and interesting information that only a student who actually studies at Cambridge could know. He was a natural and hit the perfect tone, not patronising, adapting to questions from adults and children and was incredibly fact, all the blue shifted staff were amazing. No question too small and despite the amount of groups we bumped in to, we never felt rushed or crowded.

Good comprehensive guide; Jude. Jude was very personable, friendly, and informative with a sense of humor. He spent time talking to us and asking where we came from and why I wanted to come on a university tour. I was able to ask questions as I felt he was amenable and interested. Jude provided some quirky and off-the-cuff information about the different colleges which comprise Cambridge university which made me feel privileged to attain and that wouldn't have been gotten from any book or guide.
