Excellent tour, I had friends come up from London to visit me and this was my ace up my sleeve, they really enjoyed the sites along the canal. Tim the guide was very professional and explained in depth what sites/views we would see and the staff knowledge of the history of the buildings along the canal were on point. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cambridge.
