A lovely day, and a perfect way to see Cambridge.

Ari was an enthusiastic, humorous guide who led us expertly round the colleges. We learned many interesting facts. The weather was glorious which made the punt on the river fabulous. Our guide took us expertly along the river sharing his knowledge of Cambridge as we went. It was a lovely day, and a perfect way to see Cambridge.

Great tour with Ari today. Lots of facts about the city and the university delivered confidently and with lots of appropriate humour. We then had a lovely river trip on a punt with Max. Very relaxing after the walking tour. I really recommend this combined tour.

My girlfriend and I had the best time! The walking tour showcased the main historical highlights of the university of Cambridge and its Colleges, as well as some hidden gems filled with anecdotes of infamous rumours of the Colleges. The punting was fabulous! Best thing we did in Cambridge - no better way to enjoy the city.

Both guides were really good and offered a lot of information and guidance about Cambridge. Not sure about the name of our punting guide’s name, but the walking tour guide was Becky.

Overall I’d say that the walking tour was an absolute joy. I got to see some beautiful sights in the city and learn some genuinely surprising facts about the University’s history. The punting tour was also great, getting me up close to the natural beauty of the River Cam. Both my tour guides, Olivia and Haiden, were fantastic. Haiden told some entertaining stories about Cambridge life, and Olivia was deeply knowledgable about the University, providing fascinating insight into a student’s life in the city. The tour itself was also well organised and the timing was great. For any thinking of attending, I’d highly recommend it.
