Went in April for a Science tour with Sophie. We loved it. Very interesting and full of facts. We’ve been living in Cambridge for 6 years and made us have a better understanding of the city and the unique impact in history

It was a real pleasure taking you round Cambridge today. Great to see eyes light up at the mention of James Clerk Maxwell:-) Thank you for your lovely responsiveness. Sophie

Our tour was fantastic. It was great being able to chose exactly where we wanted the tour. There were so many fascinating sorties and facts, I definitely won't ever see the city in the same way again! Best of all was how warm, friendly and good humoured Sophie was which set a wonderful tone to the afternoon.

Myself and my mum went on a Science walking tour, run by Sophie Smiley, on Tuesday the 27th October. Despite being a sixth form student in Cambridge for the past year, and my mum having lived and worked in Cambridge over many years, the tour was incredibly enthralling and absolutely perfect. Sophie is the most wonderful person, with such charisma and care for those she takes around Cambridge, we were sad to say goodbye at the end. Another thing to note is how well the tour worked with COVID-19 guidelines, the smaller group size and care taken made for a very comfortable environment throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone who is in or around Cambridge.
