About Cambridge Tour Guides
We provide fun and family-friendly walking tours of historic Cambridge. We are fully trained registered Green Badge guides. Only Cambridge Green Badge guides are allowed to take groups inside the Cambridge colleges. We offer tours ranging from one to three hours. The most popular length of tour is two hours, which allows time to visit at least one of the historic colleges. This might be the world-famous King's College Chapel, with its many great treasures. Queens' College is very picturesque and is a good example of how the early colleges were founded and developed through the centuries. St John's College and Pembroke are also very popular with visitors. On our tours you will hear about the many famous, and infamous, people that helped to make Cambridge what it is today. We will also tell you about the story of the townspeople and show you iconic buildings such as St Bene't's Saxon church (built around 1030) and the Eagle Pub, renowned for its Royal Air Force bar. Above all, we aim to make our tours entertaining and enjoyable for all ages and interests.

This is a must-do in Cambridge. My tour guide Tony was super knowledgeable and very nice. The tour felt much shorter than it actually was and there was something for everybody.

Five stars!! Inspiring. irreverent, informative and just great fun - I couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough. I lived in Cambridge for 4 years and thought I knew the city - turns out I didn’t! Guide Tony Rodgers transported our group through time, different locations, bringing the city, the university and all its most famous - and infamous - characters to life. Not a dry ‘script,’ but a live performance, given by a great performer, perfectly tailored To both the old and young in our group - and just a great way to spend an hour and a half! - We’ll be back!

Had an amazing tour today. Tony is a super funny guy who is the font of knowledge on all things Cambridge. This tour is very engaging/interactive and his sense of humour really sets it apart. I am local and have spent a lot of time in Cambridge but learnt lots of new facts about this beautiful city. I cannot recommend ‘Cambridge tour guides’ highly enough . My friend and I will be booking more tours for sure! Thank you Tony!

It’s probably impossible to fit centuries of history into a 90 minute guided walk through the historic streets of Cambridge, but Chris Skilton got pretty close. Romans to the discovery of DNA, College buildings, Churches and a pub were all included. Plenty of time for questions too. I’ll definitely be back for a in-depth tour of Kings College Chapel. Highly recommended.
