Experience some of the best walking tours in Oxford with Alumni Tours

Located in the heart of Cambridge, Alumni Tours are an independent tour company with a difference. Instead of a tour guide, you'll be led around the most beautiful areas of Cambridge and Oxford with real University students and graduates, so you can gain a local insight into one of the most historic cities in the UK.

"Although I and my wife have been to Cambridge many times, we took this tour with Laura to get an insight on how it is to live and learn in Cambridge. As a recent graduate, Laura was able to go beyond the 'facts and dates' and give a viewpoint of someone who spent 3 years living, working and learning in Cambridge. Excellent tour guide who made the 90 minutes fly by," Alumni Tours Review
