Featured Tours


Cambridge Alumni Tours is an independent tour company with a difference. Located just outside King’s College in royal blue uniform, we provide walking tours with real Cambridge University students and graduates as well as traditional punting tours.


We think the best way to see Cambridge is with the real experts. That’s why our walking tour guides are always students of the University of Cambridge, who take you in and around the colleges while offering their personal take on Cambridge history and student life. For a different perspective, try a relaxing punting tour on the river. An iconic part of Cambridge heritage, punting is the ideal way to see and learn about some of the most famous Cambridge colleges.


For centuries Cambridge has been home to some of the greatest minds and biggest ideas in human history. It is a city where people come to explore, discover, and imagine. During your visit, let Cambridge Alumni Tours bring this city of learning to life.


Join us on a shared tour, or request a more private affair. Whether you’re a curious traveller or prospective student, hen party or school group, our professional and enthusiastic team is here to meet all your needs, answer all your questions, and help you make the most of your visit to Cambridge.

What Our Guests Are Saying

Excellent Tour

"I had friends come up from London to visit me and this was my ace up my sleeve , they really enjoyed the sites along the canal . Tim the guide was very professional and explained in depth what sites/views we would see and the staff knowledge of the history of the buildings along the canal were on point would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cambridge to book via Cambridge Alumin Tours."

Fantastic Tour

"I would definitely recommend this tour. Maria, our tour guide was really great! She was very friendly and more than willing to take any pictures that we asked for. She told a lot of funny stories and was more than willing to answer any questions that we had about university life at Cambridge in general. Thank you Maria, you were the highlight of our day in Cambridge!"

Insightful and Interesting

"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."

Brilliant, Funny, and Witty

"Jess was brilliant, funny, and witty. She was very knowledgeable about so much of the university. She studied at the university before becoming a professor of Latin there. She should us lots of little hideouts that have great history which most of the tourist swarms don’t come close to. She was very patient and moved at the group’s pace and answered any questions."
