The food tour was one of the highlights of our visit to Cambridge. It was fun and learning for my teenage daughters and myself. Gerla is an excellent guide and host, she knows the local food scene very well. We were happy to be in a small group that day and besides, we had some days after the tour to enjoy the restaurants we got to know during the tour...

Hello Wendela, thank you for your lovely feedback. It was very nice having you and your daughters. We were very lucky with the weather and especially when the sun is it, Cambridge is wonderful. And who knows maybe Tot ziens! Gerla

Booked a tour for mine and my brother's birthday and we loved it! The tour lasted for hours and kept us engaged throughout. All the food we tried was amazing and it left us with some great ideas of places to revisit - for this reason the tour is also great for locals or for those who are new to the area. Gerla, the tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about food in the area which made the tour excellent - would definitely recommend this to friends!

Hi Beth,

It was lovely to have the 3 of you and we were lucky to get a chance to visit Eat Cambridge too. The weather was perfect and your brother certainly did have a good shopping spree! I hope all goes well in future. Don't hesitate to contact me again if you want to know more about the food scene. Keep an eye open for the Street food market, which will kick off on the 6th of June.

A very enjoyable walk, tour and exploration of Cambridge, coupled with a wonderful selection of nibbles, drinks and 'best of' samples.

Gerla was a superb guide; knowledgeable and friendly, and really made the day. I'd definitely recommend this to anybody new to the city, or who wants to know the best spots for food, drink and treats!

Stumbled across this gem on the website. Despite finding others that were cheaper I could tell that this was a cut above the rest due to the reviews, the guide herself and her ability to create a bespoke tour to suit the bride to be's taste which others could not do. Gerla was a pleasure to meet and she even arranged our punting experience as part of a package which made the planning process easier for someone not from Cambridge.

I was staying in London and had a free day, so I thought a day trip to Cambridge would be fun. Not one to fancy sitting in buses and viewing from afar, the Cambridge Food Tour was a brilliant way to see Cambridge and to enjoy the best places up close. Gerla was very knowledgeable about the local food scene and I took away some great general knowledge about the history of both town and the wonderful universities. In addition to the traditional british cuisine, we were treated to food from a number of different countries (Brazil, South Africa, France just to name a few). The idea of eating lovely foods and then walking off the calories was a wonderful way to spend the day.

Hi Lina, thank you for your lovely feedback from down South. It was great having you on the tour. A pity the weather wasn't good enough to drift along the Cam in a punt. Maybe an excuse to come back to Cambridge!
