Very enjoyable and certainly lived up to expectations and was good value for money. Sophie was an excellent walking guide and is currently a 4th year student at the University so not only knew all about the historical side oof the various colleges, but also was able to offer a student's view also, which was fun. The walk was followed by a 50 min Punt in the capable hands of an expert "punter" and we were so glad we chose a guide, judging by the difficulties self-punters were getting themselves in. After a 90 min walk followed by a leisurely punt with similar but not the same, information, was equally enjoyable.

SOPHIE WAS JUST AMAZING! The tour was informative and funny. She gave a real taste of what student life in Cambridge can be. For someone with a son who is interested in applying it was just fantastic. Sophie is a real advocate for Cambridge University, a real treasure. The guide on the punt wasn't quite so good, but it was his first weekend, the river was busy and Sophie is a pretty hard act to follow. Some of the stories were similar and sounded very scripted and weren't always correct.

Francesco notre guide nous a fait visité la ville en nous racontant à la fois des éléments historiques entremêlés de quelques faits parfois humoristiques. Il répondait volontier à toutes nos questions. Je recommande. Merci Francesco! Johanne, Québec, Canada

We really enjoyed the tour Our guide Zara was wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable and explained and covered all the spots very well She resolved all queries Punting experience was memorable too

The Walking Tour was fun, and our guide was interesting and knowledgeable. Punting was a good way to see Cambridge from a different perspective.
