Johnie was brilliant and so knowledgeable. He catered for all, looking at our expressions if he felt it not suitable to continue the event. I would thoroughly recommend the tour and would request Johnie.

Good tour but boring guidd

Very knowledgable but thought she came across as a bit boring showed no emotion when telling story and lacked a bit of excitment

It seems that someone has started posting fake negative reviews on our page. Fortunately, the wealth of positive reviews show the true picture. We are fortunate to work with some of the best guides in Cambridge. They are certainly not boring or lacking in emotion. It is a great pity when TripdAvisor is misused in this way. Chris Skilton.

Jonny was lovely and really easy to listen to. His facts and stories were interesting. Lots of stops but for a short amount of time, which we prefer. Me & my partner think it would be great if we were given a leaflet at the end of the tour, to summarise everything that had been spoken about as it's hard to remember it all!

By Tony’s own admission, he claims to be the worst tour guide in Cambridge, if not the world. However this was far from true. We spent a couple of hours with Tony and had a wonderful, informative, amusing and amazing tour around the colleges. Would highly recommended. Thanks Tony for a great morning
