Photo Tour

This tour is designed to showcase the iconic views of the city and its buildings.

The guide will take you to the classic locations such as the Backs and the river, but will also introduce some lesser-known spots where you can capture some fresh and unusual perspectives on city life.

You will get an informative commentary as you go along and great advice on where and when to get that perfect picture!

Poetry and Literature

We are really excited to add this new tour for 2018!

Cambridge and the adjoining village of Grantchester have been a haven for poets and authors alike. On this tour we will not only show you where Lord Byron, Sylvia Plath, A A Milne, Zadie Smith and others found their inspiration but also local Cambridge poet Michael Brown will perform some of their most famous pieces (if he is available).

Duration: 2 hours
Prices: Adult £15/Child £8
