Overview

Join a local historian and PhD student as we discover the story behind the birth of one of the world’s most famous universities, and what it’s like to be a student at Cambridge University! Take a city break from London and learn about 110 Nobel Prize winners that have walked the halls of this university.

On this private socially-distanced guide, we'll visit the most iconic spots of the city such as Trinity College, King’s College, and Great St Mary's Church. Walkthrough the architectural highlights and follow the footsteps of the famous alumni Prince Charles, Sir Isaac Newton, C.S. Lewis, John Harvard, and Stephen Hawking.

Learn about the various traditions (both familiar and odd), students' lives, and fun facts about past alumni, as you get a more intimate look at the culture, history, and soul of this beautiful picturesque town.

Bringing along young kids, I can’t always join more expensive walking tours as most of the time it’s too long for kids to stay focused. However this is just perfect for us to take our own pace, and the guide is really good in getting us intrigued about their school life, so thank you and will definitely recommend. I’d join their other tours!

Gave us a great insight to the history of Cambridge and college life. The punt was a lot of fun and gave a totally different perspective

Was nice but it wasn't obvious when I booked it that it was a do it yourself audio tour on an app. That should be obvious and clear at the outset so that it's an informed decision to start with. I was frankly expecting a guide when I booked.
