We both enjoyed our walking tour of Cambridge on Saturday 7 May 2022. Our guide was friendly and informative and the tour was very interesting. She pointed our many things which we would have ordinarily have missed. The punt along the Cam was also a worthwhile trip with our guide providing us with lots of stories and interesting facts.

We had a great time with our guide, Elvira, an actual Cambridge student from Hungary with perfect knowledge of the complicated world of the Uni and it’s colleges. Definitely recommend.

I wish my English was as good as Francesco's! And I am English. He was knowledgeable, patient and very articulate, although made plenty of time to answer questions.

The tour was well guided with a lot of interesting information about the University and Cambridge. Also, the tour guides were really lovely and cool :)

Francesco was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It culminated in the Ponting trip was a great finale to the tour
