It was such a treat to do a four hour tour of Cambridge. We were able to see and talk about a lot at a leisurely pace. It was lovely to meet you both and I hope the rest of your visit to the UK went really well. Jo

No tour but very pleasant tour guide

We were at the meeting point but somehow the tour guide wasn’t aware there was a tour and very kindly refunded us. We had a wander ourselves. I’m sure the tour is great and very informative when it takes place. But the lady who is usually was very pleasant over the phone and unfortunately was not aware. Miscommunication for some reason
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Many, many apologies for the miscommunication. Entirely my fault and hopefully we have learnt from the mistake. I will very gladly give you a free tour at any time in the future. Dick Matthews Owner

We had a walking tour with Jo. It was exceptional....You see marvelous structures...but its always the story that makes it more beautiful and memorable.....Cynics may say the stories are on internet...but story telling has its own charm...Jo was amazing...she was eager to share....its my second visit to Cambridge...but surely having a tour guide made it more meaningful.

It was lovely to meet you all and it was a great idea to explore Cambridge after dark, despite it being a bit chilly! Maybe you will come back again in the day time to explore more of the colleges? Kind regards, Jo

Our very articulate and extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Dick Matthews, presented us with some of the very best architecture and historically significant sites of the University of Cambridge. We were awestruck by all that he showed us. The tour met and exceeded our expectations and we were much enlightened and enriched by the experience. I highly recommend this particular tour and our terrific guide, Dick Matthews, if you wish to see and learn about the University of Cambridge. Enjoy!
