The tour lasts about 1 hour and twenty minutes and an excellent audio commentary is provided, my wife and I certainly learned a lot about the City in a short space of time. In the summer period buses run every twenty minutes and there are plenty of interesting places to get off, the tour goes out as far as Madingley... More

This is one of the better tours we have taken with this Group as there is a lot of information presented throughout the tour. The information is relevant and interesting and gives you a good understanding of the town. The drop-off's are good and there is plenty to see. The price was reasonable at just under £15 each. The only... More

Spent a very pleasant afternoon using the Open Top Bus Tour to get around the city. We jumped off at a couple of places, but primarily used it to help make up our minds what we would concentrate on during the other two days of our stay. Driver was courteous, and the commentary (in a range of languages) informative. Would... More

We always try to take a city open-top bus tour when we visit a new place. We learned a lot on this one, which is our criteria for rating it. Our driver was friendly and a good driver. We took the first tour of the day to find our way around and learn about the city and its buildings; and... More

Had visited Cambridge before but never saw all of the attractions until we took this bus tour. Found the American cemetery very interesting. The weather was ideal for seeing the attractions and was very enjoyable. Will return and hopefully get to see these in more detail.

Best to do on a sunny day, as it can get a bit breezy on the top deck. You can hop on and off, so was nice to have an ice cream and watch the punting, then catch the next one for a visit to the American War Cemetery, then the next one for a tour of the city centre... More

Used the bus to see the city by going all the way round as soon as we arrived. You can get on and off where and when you like but we did the whole thing which is about and hour and a quarter. It was a lovely day and we could sit on the top deck and watch the world... More
