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 2018 and have received high praise for them as the 5 star Airbnb reviews testify

Very different from advertising. The guide spoke softly and spoke only to a woman he apparently sympathized more with. It was a long visit but few relevant facts were said, just curiosities like the names of Nobel Prizes, which were the famous who studied in a certain college and which were the English kings and queens. If you want to know more about the city's architecture, art and culture, as well as the history of the old city, I suggest looking for another guide.
