Coronavirus (Covid -19) update – please read in full

Following Government advice, there have been no Cambridge on Foot tours since 12th March 2020.  We are permitted to resume guided tours for individuals, couples or small family groups from 4th July 2020.  We care about safety, and have put the following strategies in place to prevent the transmission of Covid-19:


  • We only offer private tours. You will not be mixed in a group with strangers.

  • From 4th July, until further changes are announced, we can only guide family members from the same household (bubble). Please ensure that all members of your group are allowed to share your ‘bubble’ according to the latest Government advice.

  • If you use a smartphone, we are trialling an App which will allow you to hear your guide clearly through head-phones, while maintaining your desired social distance. This will be available for the normal price of a tour until 31st August 2020 when the free trial ends.   You are not required to download the App it is an additional option that we are pleased to offer.

  • Guides will not wear face coverings but will remain at 1m+ distance from the group. Visitors are welcome to wear facecoverings if they wish.

  • Guides will not shake hands with visitors. Hand sanitiser will be available on request.

  • We ask groups to cancel in case of diagnosis with Covid 19, if you have been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid 19 within 14 days prior to the tour or are experiencing symptoms related to Covid 19 . All payment will be refunded.


The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to norm

  • If your guide develops any of the symptoms described above, an alternative guide will be found or the tour will be cancelled with full refund.


  • Payment in cash is not recommended. We request payment by online bank transfer at least 24 hours before the tour start of the tour


  • The colleges of the University of Cambridge are currently closed to visitors until further notice. However there is much to discover in this beautiful city and we have wonderful stories to share with you.


  • Finally all Cambridge on Foot guides are official Cambridge guides who have passed Institute of Tourist Guiding examinations and have been trained to a high standard to care for the welfare and safety of all tour groups. As members of the Society of Cambridge Tour Guides we all hold public liability insurance, however this does not cover the risk of Covid-19 infection. Whilst guides take all possible precautions, please be aware that participation in a guided tour is taken at your own risk.
