My wife and I had a great time touring the campus with Naomi. She was knowledgeable, funny, and easy to talk to. We didn't know there were so many ghost stories at Cambridge!

Naomi gave us a fun and informational 90 minutes, the perfect foundational intro to Cambridge that left us with great ideas on what to explore on our own. All the best with your studies, Naomi, and thank you again ❤️

a terrible experience
Rohini_S

what is memorable was that it will be remembered as a BAD experience. i have had tons of walking tours. it is what i do every time i go to a new city. many of these are free tours. i have never had a tour where there was mostly walking with barely any talking. for a tour that was quiet high priced having a guide who had barely no knowledge about what we were seeing is a sad sad thing. we walked around - did not go into a single college ... had one sentence at most about the places we stopped at. we heard other tours near us and i learnt more those over hearing those guides than ours. extremely disappointing. you say it includes a visit to kings chapel but basically all it included was an entrance to it, for which we could have simply bought tickets. this was one of the most rip-off tours i have ever had.

Very good, but I expected a guided tour around Kings College. Paying an additional £14 for mere entry is outrageous!

The stories Emily told. My disappointment at not being given a tour around Kings College and the Chapel. We felt cheated. Admission to Kings is normally £10, and we paid an additional £14. Not happy at all. (No reflection on our tour guide for the rest).
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Dear Mary, Thank you for your review. We have set up our tour to accommodate entry to King's College & King's College chapel at the end of our classic tour route. This enables you to roam the grounds & chapel at your own pace at the end of the tour. Our guide will always give you a thorough explanation of King's College history before the tour has ended. You are then given a self guided tour brochure which compliments the guided tour. The cost for King's College entry is £10 however there are additional processing/admin fees incurred when we handle this for you. So this mean there is only a £4 difference compared to buying the ticket yourself, which we make nothing out of. We arrange this for your convenience and to enhance your experience of Cambridge. I hope this clears up the matter. We are very pleased you enjoyed your tour with Emily and we wish you the best in your future travels. Best wishes, Alumni Tours
