Overview
Cambridge is home to one of the world’s most famous universities, with a history dating back 800 years. On this combo tour, explore the historic streets on foot then take to the Cam River by punt, and see the city through the eyes of a Cambridge University graduate. Visit Corpus Christi College, The Eagle pub, and the Senate House, and follow in the footsteps of alumni including Sir Isaac Newton and Stephen Hawking.
What to Expect
Make your way to King's College in central Cambridge, and meet your guide— a Cambridge University graduate. Then, set off through the city to begin your 90-minute walking tour.

Step back in time to the discovery of D.N.A in Cambridge, and visit the chapels and libraries for which the university is known. Explore sites of interest like Corpus Christi College, Great St. Mary’s Church, The Eagle pub, and the Senate House, and hear colorful tales of student life in the city. Along the way, hear of famous alumni such as Prince Charles, Sir Isaac Newton, and Stephen Hawking.

Afterward, take to the tranquil waters of the Cam River by punt—a narrow, wooden boat ideal for these waterways. With your guide at the helm, admire sweeping views along the riverbanks to the colleges beyond and gain insight into 800 years of English history in Cambridge.

During your cruise, perhaps take the pole in hand and give punting a try yourself! Then, return to your starting point by King’s College to bring your tour to an end.
