ماذا ستفعل

Our walking tour takes in some of the famous colleges and historic sights of the city as you meander down quaint alleyways and tread the cobbled streets. You will hear quirky facts and stories of the colleges and their colourful alumni, all set within the context of English and world history, plus many fascinating tales of city life through the ages not generally mentioned in the guide books. We will take you to a church 1000 years old and reveal it’s hidden secret, down side streets to places of interest visitors don't normally see. You will go back in time to medieval Cambridge to discover how the University all started, visiting colleges over 700 years old and hearing their history. We will show you what it is to experience life as a student in a Cambridge College. All our tours are unique as we specialise in small groups and encourage interaction and questions.
Highlights of our walking tour include The Senate House, The Colleges of Gonville & Caius, Trinity, St John’s, Kings, Clare, Corpus Christie, Pembroke, Peterhouse and Queens. St Benet's church, an unusual clock, the historic Eagle pub, The Cavendish Labs, and the Mathematical Bridge

Hello my name is Tim, I run my own tour company called Guide and Peek Cambridge. I came to be a student in Cambridge over 40 years ago. I fell in love with the city then, and remain so to this day. I am a local historian with an intimate knowledge of the City, University Colleges and their colourful alumni. Having taken early retirement I am now fulfilling my dream of sharing this beautiful city and its quirky facts and stories with others. I set up my tours 2018 and have received high praise for them as the 5 star Airbnb reviews testify

St Benet's church, an unusual clock, the historic Eagle pub where world changing announcements were made, laboratories where famous discoveries were made, the house of a medieval hangman, a church with the most unusual stained glass and a bridge that's an optical illusion

Highly informative explanation of Cambridge University told by a history major who knows how to focus on fun and interesting facts. Time simply flew!

We went on the walking tour with Tim who was very knowledgeable about the history of Cambridge. He was eager to be asked questions which he readily answered. It’s good to do the tour at the start of your stay so that you can get your bearings. It doesn’t cover a lot of distance but does cover a lot of information.

Tim was a great tour guide! He is so knowledgeable and made the history interesting. If you're at all interested in delving below the surface of Cambridge, in particular the university, I would highly recommend!

At the very beginning we struggled to find car parking in Cambridge and phoned Tim on the mobile number he’d helpfully given us. He directed us to the nearest car park and warned us that it was expensive and gave very clear directions on how to get to it. It was an example of how thorough he was throughout the tour. He turned up a few minutes early as promised and was friendly and engaging and very knowledgeable throughout. We couldn’t add anything in the box “what could be improved“ because we couldn’t think of anything he could’ve done better. It was great value, he was very knowledgeable and had lots of personal stories to relate and brought along some visual aids to help us, the favourite of which was the car dragged up onto the roof of the Senate building. We both feel very comfortable proposing this tour to anybody wanting to learn more about Cambridge Colleges. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

Great guide very knowledgable. Showed a genuine passion for the city and its history and his recommendation of a place to eat and local beer afterwards was spot on!

A great walking tour by a guide who has a genuine interest and a wealth of knowledge in the subject. Not just scripted speech...
