This tour was really beautiful. It is fascinating to see and learn about the buildings surrounding the river. Our guide, Josh, was very easygoing, knowledgeable and professional. I cannot wait to go back again in summer.

It was an amazing experience, best money I spent. The guide was so nice and explained perfectly everything. It was a 5 starts experience, I will repeat with all my friends and family.

The boat trip was the highlight of our stay in Cambridge. Our guide Ben was friendly, knowledgable and told us lots of interesting stories about Cambridge and beyond!

The tour is perfect. We booked the tour in the early morning so it will be only me, my partner, and another customer. The guide is very helpful.

Fantastic experience on the private tour and the best Italian tour guide.
