Select a departure time on booking, and meet your private guide in central Cambridge. Then, set out into the graceful streets while learning about Cambridge’s rich history and prestigious university, the fourth-oldest of its kind in the world. Spread along the River Cam, the city is famed for its exquisite architecture, medieval colleges, and beautiful riverside collegiate gardens.

Inform your guide if there’s something you want to concentrate on during your explorations. Your tour is private, so your itinerary, from start to finish, can be personalized to reflect your preferences or themes of particular interest.

You may, for example, want to visit some specific university colleges. If so, your guide — many are involved with the university and can provide great insight into its workings and history — will discuss the options, and do everything possible to arrange it. All entrance fees to colleges and other landmarks are at your own expense.

Perhaps choose to visit some of Cambridge’s top draws, such as Trinity College with its grand Tudor gateway, 15th-century Queens’ College, or the 19th-century Bridge of Sighs, a covered stone bridge named after Venice’s similar landmark.

Alternatively, you may want to see inside magnificent King’s College Chapel and stroll through The Backs, the postcard-perfect college gardens along the River Cam, where punters drift along the placid waters.

Or, ask your guide to lead you through the elegant streets and passageways, passing the city's many honey-stoned colleges on route, and admiring sights like the Fitzwilliam Museum, the 17th-century watercourse of Hobson’s Conduit, and impressive Senate House, the setting for the university’s degree ceremonies.

After about two hours of exploring, your guide will bid you goodbye in the city center, leaving you free to continue your sightseeing.

This tour is perfect for a day trip to Cambridge. It takes you past all the most important sites and through the different colleges, and helps you understand the history behind everything you'd otherwise just be snapping pictures of. Our tour guide, James, was friendly and knowledgable, and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through Cambridge with him. We had great conversation, both about the tour and otherwise, and he happily took our questions throughout the tour. I would definitely recommend doing this tour if you have limited time in Cambridge.
