This was the first open top bus tour that we had ever done,we got lucky as it was a sunny day for january. WE did the loop then decided where to get off, various points of interest for historic cambridge culminating in a visit to the american cemetary, which was very moving and the highlight. This tour is highly recommended. Allow at least four hours, do the loop, which takes you all around cambridge as the commentary is very informative, then do some stops which 'float your boat'

This is the perfect way to see this incredible university and city in under 2 hours. There aren't that many places that seemed worth getting off at, but having the narrated commentary sure beat walking around. There's more to see from the bus than you might expect, and having the option to go punting is an added bonus!

Good overview of the city and commentary interesting. Most drivers friendly and offered extra information to help us - e.g. times of last buses. However, our first driver did not stop at one of the stops we wanted to alight at he claimed there was no one waiting at the stop...but he had stopped at all the other stops despite no one being there! He did drive back for us and let us get off, but it wasn't a very positive experience

I had an unpleasant experience with the driver. He challenged issuing tickets as we had bought it from viator. He insisted that we should have bought it from their company website and went on and on about his company wont get money in a quite patronising manner. This was a bad start to our trip. Apart from this incident, the prices on viator are quite competitive and i had a pleasant experience with the purchase process on the website.

You should take this hop on hop off bus tour in Cambridge if you are for a day trip short on time and do not have own transport and are reaching Cambridge by Rail. Unlike Oxford, the railway station in Cambridge is a bit away from the city centre. The bus tour itself is good and comes with pre-recorded guide in english and some other languages. You may first get down on the nearest stop on river Cam to book a punting experience note you do get a li'l discount if you purchase tickets on the bus. Punting, IMHO, is the best experience on a day trip to Cambridge and should not be missed. Other attractions in Cambridge could be the Museum and the college/university campusses, obviously depending your interest, pace and time. cheers.
