About
This tour will introduce you to the crucial role of Cambridge in world history and highlight the city’s architectural wonders, with our University guides. On top of this, the tour will enter King’s College! Sites covered include the oldest church in Cambridge (1033), the oldest College (1284) and the laboratory famous for the discovery of DNA. Along with Cambridge landmarks such as the Mathematical Bridge and Senate house where graduation has been held for the past 300 years. The highlight will be entering King’s College. Established by King Henry VI, with successive King’s providing more ambitious additions (hence the name!). The chapel has the largest vaulted ceiling in the world and even a Rubens, once the most expensive painting ever purchased. It is easy to see why numerous Kings and Queens have visited, and why your visit cannot be complete without entering! Additionally, our student guides will share their experiences of the college system and let you into local secrets.

Expensive
Aug 2021
We had been on a tour with Cantab Tours on the Monday and had booked this tour for the Wednesday. We had expected to be able to see inside the colleges, but this was not the case. We had entry to just one of them, same as the other tour. Joseph was our guide and on this tour we walked further and at a slightly faster pace. Some of this tour overlapped with our previous tour and I thought it was going to be a complete waste of money, until we crossed the river and walked along it where we had not been before. This tour is quite expensive compared to the Cantab tour and I don't know why. We seemed to have less information. At the end of the tour Joseph asked for tips (to my surprise).
