Our walking tour takes in some of the famous colleges and historic sights of the city as you meander down quaint alleyways and tread the cobbled streets. You will hear quirky facts and stories of the colleges and their colourful alumni, all set within the context of English and world history, plus many fascinating tales of city life through the ages not generally mentioned in the guide books. We will take you to a church 1000 years old and reveal it’s hidden secret, down side streets to places of interest visitors don't normally see. You will go back in time to medieval Cambridge to discover how the University all started, visiting colleges over 700 years old and hearing their history. We will show you what it is to experience life as a student in a Cambridge College. All our tours are unique as we specialise in small groups and encourage interaction and questions

    As well as details on how Cambridge System relates to the students - famous alumni and Nobel prizes - the purpose of various sharp spikes - and Diddy Doors and Night Climbers - the expected details of the most and lesser known colleges were comprehensive. The guide was friendly and willing to accommodate the any requests of the party members.

    Tim our guide was a wealth of interesting knowledge of the history of Cambridge. Our walking tour was informative and at times humorous. We would certainly recommend him.

    We enjoyed all of it from start to finish. It was great value for the money. Our guide arrived in good time. He had a great sense of humour and he brought the history he was describing to life.
