James was a very enthusiastic and comprehensive guide. He expertly guided us through the major points in Cambridge history - both the funny and serious staff! We covered all the important landmarks in just two hours that seemed like two minutes ;) Highly recommend!

Will is a great tour guide! He speaks fast but is bery knowledgeable (he grew up in Cambridge) about the town and the colleges. We visited all the main sites and Will gave interesting and fun talks with incredible energy.

No, you can't see the colleges inside (unless you pay for it). We stopped at each college and the guide would speak about their history and fun events. I found it very interesting!
