O que você fará

Our walking tour takes in some of the famous colleges and historic sights of the city as you meander down quaint alleyways and tread the cobbled streets. You will hear quirky facts and stories of the colleges and their colourful alumni, all set within the context of English and world history, plus many fascinating tales of city life through the ages not generally mentioned in the guide books. We will take you to a church 1000 years old and reveal it’s hidden secret, down side streets to places of interest visitors don't normally see. You will go back in time to medieval Cambridge to discover how the University all started, visiting colleges over 700 years old and hearing their history. We will show you what it is to experience life as a student in a Cambridge College. All our tours are unique as we specialise in small groups and encourage interaction and questions.
Highlights of our walking tour include The Senate House, The Colleges of Gonville & Caius, Trinity, St John’s, Kings, Clare, Corpus Christie, Pembroke, Peterhouse and Queens. St Benet's church, an unusual clock, the historic Eagle pub, The Cavendish Labs, and the Mathematical Bridge

Hello my name is Tim, I run my own tour company called Guide and Peek Cambridge. I came to be a student in Cambridge over 40 years ago. I fell in love with the city then, and remain so to this day. I am a local historian with an intimate knowledge of the City, University Colleges and their colourful alumni. Having taken early retirement I am now fulfilling my dream of sharing this beautiful city and its quirky facts and stories with others. I set up my tours this year and have already received high praise for them as the 5 star Airbnb reviews testify

Highlights of our walking tour include The Senate House, The Colleges of Gonville & Caius, Trinity, St John’s, Kings, Clare, Corpus Christie, Pembroke, Peterhouse and Queens. St Benet's church, an unusual clock, the historic Eagle pub where world changing announcements were made, laboratories where famous discoveries were made, the house of a medieval hangman, a church with the most unusual stained glass and a bridge that's an optical illusion

Tim, thank you very much for our experience with Tour of Cambridge University. We loved your storytelling. A lot of interesting facts, that we didn’t know before. Children really enjoyed, I think they will remember it forever. Highly recommend.

The walking tour with Tim was an exceptional experience for me and my partner. This lovely tour packed with facts and trivia was the perfect gift for him. Tim was super friendly, had amazing storytelling skills and was always ready to answer our questions. He didn't rush with the tour and patiently took us through all the beautiful locations around the University. He genuinely enjoyed what he was doing which enhanced our experience even more. He even gave us lovely recommendations to carry on the birthday celebration later in the city. It's an experience you don't want to miss out on if you are keen to know about the city.

Tim was absolutely wonderful. Brilliant communication, he replied straight away and agreed to organise a private tour for myself and my partner for my birthday. His story telling was exceptional, with a wealth of knowledge and wonderful company. Tim was so considerate taking us round the city at at the perfect pace. We couldn't have hoped for a better tour, and it's really made my day. An absolute pleasure, would highly recommend, and would happily do this again! We had an awesome time. Thank you, Tim.

Tim did a great job with a tough audience (13 and 16 year old plus parents with experience of Cambridge) in horrible weather. We saw things we wouldn’t have noticed on our own and loved the stories of student pranks.

Thanks for a great tour of Cambridge, Tim. It was lovely to see the colleges and learn the history behind them. It was also great to hear about all the famous personalities that have attended the different colleges. The tour was very personalised and you are clearly very passionate and knowledgable. Hopefully, our girls have been inspired to dream big.
