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!
I enjoyed the tour and was very impressed with both towns and the history, however, I felt with 52 people on the tour, it was a bit much for the tour guide to handle. There were tourists walking on the road in front of bikes and one family was 15 minutes late back when we had been given strict time frames to return to the bus. i think a group of 15 to 20 would have been much more viable for a successful tour.
This was fine but would have preferred a smaller tour and a little more time to stop for a drink. About 3stars
The guide, Chrissie, is professional in sharing the information of each place. She provides good background and history of the 2 colleges.
However, there was not enough time provided for exploring Cambridge and lunch. We had little time to walk around Cambridge before grabbing lunch to eat on the coach.
We were encouraged to bring non-hot food to lunch on the coach, while the guide brought hot coffee onto the coach. Talk about double standard.
