I had a great time on this tour, as this it covered the history and locations of both universities quite sufficiently. I would recommend this tour for people who are staying in the UK for a short period of time.
The towns are very interesting and beautiful, however wanted to listen to more stories from the guide
This was great trip in most regards though it was a lot of "in bus time". The guide was excellent and well informed and guided us through the main colleges of each city. Unfortunately the main college that I wished to see was closed on the day, not Viators fault. I was offered an alternative date!
Very good tour, but very rushed, especially in Cambridge. Could have used one extra hour of free time in each location, but glad we went on the tour.
Good and informative trip , time was short to cover both Cambridge and Oxford in a day .
Great day out and a good way to see both cities when you have limited time available. Guide was excellent!
It was nice to visit the two universities but the amount of driving and time it takes to get to each site was too much! It takes nearly 1.5-2 hours to get to Cambridge, 1.5 hours between Cambridge and Oxford and then nearly 1.5 hours to come back to London. The campuses were lovely and the guide was excellent! If it were closer together, it would have been better!
Very nice trip, but we needed more time in the two destinations. Possibly the tour should start earlier in the morning to allow for additional time. Our guide was very nice and informative.
We enjoyed the tour. It was a pity that the time in each town could not be a half hour longer, but that is understandable given the time constraints. The tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks for the fun time!
Getting onto the coach at Victoria Coach Station was chaotic but once we got under way, it was a good tour. The tour guide Emily really made the trip as she was very knowledgeable and her presentation was lively. It is a good way to see both towns if you are pushed for time. It is a very brief overview as you are on the road for a long time, but you see the main sights.
