The University of Cambridge is amongst the best in the world made up of 31 colleges each one distinctive and unique. Only a limited number of qualified Cambridge tour guides are permitted to take groups to view inside the colleges.
Our private tours weave the stories of people and places together to bring alive the rich history of this vibrant city. Whether you are interested in history, science, sport, politics, architecture, religion or music, Cambridge has it all.
If you would like to stop to eat or drink after the tour we can book a table or make recommendations to suit all budgets. We can arrange punt tours and if you are interested in visiting a particular college just let us know. Please bear in mind that the colleges are places of work and they are subject to closure, particularly for revision and exams.
If there is a topic that is of special interest to you let us know in advance and we will endeavour to incorporate it into your personal tour. Recent requests have included: Applying to Cambridge and student life – an introduction for prospective students; The Tudors in Cambridge; Cambridge’s Religious Past; The pubs and ale houses of Cambridge or Cambridge and Pink Floyd.
Every tour can be personalised to suit you and your group: starting and finishing at a convenient location. Each tour will feature highlights of the town, the University and its colleges. Cambridge is flat, easy walking and suitable for all ages, just watch out for bicycles!
