Alumni Tours is an independent tour company with a difference. Located in the heart of Cambridge in royal blue uniform, we provide walking tours with real Cambridge University students and graduates as well as traditional Cambridge 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 famous history and student life. For a different perspective, try a relaxing punting tour on the river. An iconic part of Cambridge’s 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. They are cities where people come to explore, discover, and imagine. During your visit, let Alumni Tours bring these cities 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.

Fantastic Tour Cambridge Alumni Tours

"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 Cambridge Alumni Tours

"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 showed us lots of little hideouts that have a 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."

Superb Guided Tour Experience! Cambridge Alumni Tours

Francesco was an incredible guide, and the whole experience was so worth it! The tour was filled with amazing history, fun trivia, and even myths and legends that have circulated the university for hundreds of years. It's very obvious that the tour company (and Francesco) have put in a lot of effort to make sure the experience is educational and engaging. Also, Francesco kept his mask on the entire tour which we appreciated, and the group was kept small (only 6 of us total), which gave us the ability to keep our own boundaries as needed. Thanks so much, would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cambridge for the day!

Perfect birthday treat Cambridge Alumni Tours

Excellent day on my birthday. We did the walking tour with Joshua who is a great communicator extremely well prepared. We were just 3 of us and there was also another student that was doing her we had also another guide. Joshua suggested also a great place for a quick lunch (Bread & Meat) which I am going to review as well with 5 stars. It was the perfect day also for the punting which we did in the same boat with another couple, and that was very good as well, as it offers a great perspective of the most famous colleges. I would like to mention also the great service from Eren, the manager of Cambridge Alumni Tours. A superb experience all-round at a fair price.
