Terrible Tour
Eugene D
, Oct 2019
This tour was all bad; Tickets were not reviewed and collected. Tour just started. Tour guide spoke quietly with no verve for Cambridge University. No inside stories, ie-this is the building where the double helix was discovered-. Guide spoke with a quiet voice obscured by the Cambridge traffic noise. NO audio aids to help hear the guide ( old common technology ) . Nothing positive about the tour. Decided to leave and take financial loss. Recommend — Don’t go
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Dear Eugene, Thank you for taking the time to give feedback. We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience. As soon as we saw your review we called you to investigate your concern and you told us that you arrived 5 minutes late for the tour which had already started and you stayed for only 5-10 minutes before deciding to leave. When you arrived a team member escorted you to the tour group and because they wanted to get you to the group quickly for your own benefit, this resulted in them not checking your ticket. We also feel that staying for 5-10 minutes of the tour is not enough time to decide our tour is the 'worst tour possible' and we feel this is VERY unfair. Also, we do not advertise audio guides anywhere. We take our reputation seriously which you will see from our other positive reviews which are rated as excellent and very good 90% of the time. All our tour guides are given a carefully prepared script and receive full training. We wish you would have come to see the manager when you left the tour and reported your concern so we could have resolved the situation. Since speaking with you on the phone I have issued you a full refund. Best wishes, Cambridge Alumni Tours

Our first student guide was Anastasia, she was witty and had a great sense of humor. The tour was detailed and entertaining. The second guide on the pudding trip was a hard worker he had just returned when he hopped on our punt then was off on another before we hit the dock. Bother great tours

The grad student who conducted the tour was very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. The punting boat ride was very relaxing and the student-captain explained all the highlights nicely.

Both Parts Great

We had a really pleasant day with some wonderful students. Samuel from Trinity Hall gave us a delightful walking tour of may of the colleges. We even learned that Trinity Hall and Trinity are not the same college! Had originally booked 1pm but easily switched to 11am by just showing up and requesting the change. We then had time for lunch before the 2pm punting tour which was lovely. Granted we had fantastic weather, mid 70's and sunshine so everything was enhanced but it was still great to do these tours with students.

Informative and enjoyable

Our guide (Samuel) deserves the highest praise! Intelligent and knowledgeable, he provided more information than what must have been in the 'script' and was most eager to answer all our questions. In general, it was a well-structured tour - enough time to get acquainted with the city without getting too tired or overwhelmed with detail. The punting part of the tour was pure joy - although the narration of the guide/punter was to some extent a reiteration of some of the information provided earlier by Samuel, the beauty of the surroundings was so breathtaking that no narrative was necessary and it did not hurt to hear some details again, anyway. The punter was most capable and we felt in good hands. Julia, Australia

The walking tour was led by an articulate, knowledegable grad student as was the peaceful punting voyage on the River Cam. Electronic "whispers" would have been very helpful. I was disappointed that the tour was not private for our party as I thought the reservation specified.

It was an enjoyable Walking Tour of Cambridge with a graduate student from Cambridge. Fascinating, beautiful town with amazing architecture. The short Punting Tour along the Cam River was interesting - had an informative, entertaining punter I guess that's the term who fed us all tidbits of historical gossip.
