Absolutely loved this!! Kelan our host was great, very knowledgeable charismatic and funny, would highly recommend. We paid £15 each for 45 minutes though prices vary depending on who you book with, was 100% worth the money and more.

Get a preview of the various Colleges as you punt down the Cam River while a Guide explains their history. Then tour Cambridge University & the grounds.
