Overview

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

    We had a thorough and engaging tour with the excellent guide Tim, who certainly knew his stuff, and brought us on board with his personal enthusiasm for Cambridge and everything associated with it. He had been a student of Medieval History and shared some fascinating sights and stories. He even recommended an author he thought my wife might enjoy, and now she's hooked on that author's books.

    Our guide was very informative and I feel as though I learnt a lot from the tour. He engaged with us all and was clearly passionate and very knowledgeable about the city and its history. His enthusiasm was infectious and the time flew by a most enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Cambridge.
