Our guide, Mary, was excellent - welcoming, knowledgeable, engaging and she brought the city to life with her stories and experiences. Her genuine love of Cambridge shone through. She was very accommodating, and tailored the tour to suit our small group of four. Oh - and don't be fooled by individuals offering "unofficial tours". Cantab Tour Guides will be displaying their OFFICAL green or blue badges!
