Hi Walkers! My name is Logan, and I would be delighted to take you on a tour of Cambridge, my UK hometown! I currently study Politics and International Relations at Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge. After being a student here in Cambridge for two years, I have first-hand knowledge and experience of college and university life that I would love to share with you. If you would like to hear what Cambridge life is like from a student perspective, I look forward to meeting you on one of my tours!

Tour description

Have you ever wondered what it's really like to study at the University of Cambridge? Then come along to hear a first-hand account of Cambridge from a current student! After studying at Cambridge for the past two years, I have knowledge of the University personally, and so my tour goes beyond the history books and delves into the life of a current student.

What is a supervision like? Does everyone live in the library? Do Cambridge students have a personality? Is Cambridge really just Hogwarts? Why do we wear weird gowns and speak Latin? I'll answer these questions and more, all from a student's perspective. 

Join me for a roughly two-hour stroll around central Cambridge, with tales of student life and a scattering of the exciting bits of Cambridge's rich and long history.

My tours are flexible and subject to change, but will typically cover:

  • St John's College
  • Trinity College
  • Gonville & Caius College
  • The River Cam
  • King's Backs
  • Queen's College
  • Silver Street Punt Pool
  • Corpus Christi College & Clock
  • St Catherine's College
  • King's College
  • Senate House & University Old Schools
  • Great St Mary's Church
  • Market Square

Unfortunately we are unable to enter the college grounds, as the colleges have unpredictable visitor hours, are often closed to tourists, and have varying costs of admission. However, I highly recommend returning to colleges which are open for tourists after the tour. I would be more than happy to advise you how to do this.

My tour will be guided by what you would like to know, so expect some questions asked of you. I'm not a lecturer, so my tour will be as interactive as you wish!
I look forward to meeting you on one of my tours!

    I will be in the courtyard in front of The Round Church, on the corner of Bridge Street and Round Church Street. You can spot me easily by looking for a dark green Patagonia cap.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

It was disappointing to get a cancellation 1h before the tour was meant to start. The guide was sick which I understand but it was disappointing to not have another guide....It ruined the day as we didn't manage to get another tour booked due to the short notice of the cancellation and we only had that day in Cambridge. Won't recommend getting this company as they don't offer a backup plan or another tour/guide.

Logan was very informative and gave us a good insight into the life of a student living and learning in Cambridge. I was surprised by how much he knew about the various colleges and institutions.
