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.

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 :)
