Wat je gaat doen

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 this year and have already received high praise for them as the 5 star Airbnb reviews testify

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 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

I booked onto this tour, and honestly I must say it's one of the best tours I've done of a UK town. Tim was knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and connected with each of us. He knows alot about the history not only of the university, but the Cambridge area and England in general. Tim was also very kind, easy going, and relaxed. Made the whole experience worthwhile. Thanks Tim for a great job!

A brilliant guide! Lots of in-depth knowledge on the location. He was very friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour to see the city and hear the history of the area and university. He is very accommodating to your future plans and will fit the tour to suit the rest of your day and gives restaurant and bar recommendations too. Thank you!!

We really enjoyed our tour with Tim. It was the first thing we did on arrival for our stay in Cambridge and gave us a very good intro to the town and the college system, which meant we could better understand and appreciate what we were seeing around us for the rest of our stay. Our trip was during Covid which meant we couldn't enter any of the colleges which was a shame but the tour definitely still felt very worthwhile and Tim managed to keep interested and engaged for over 2 hours. He was very friendly, easy and enthusiastic. He listened carefully to our questions and was able to answer them all really well. Thanks Tim.

Had a lovely tour with Tim. We were a small group which was nice and made it even more unique. Tim has great historical knowledge and all the Cambridge stories. It was nice hearing about his background as well. Even though I already knew a bit about Cambridge, I definitely learnt more! My only regret is not being able to do the combined punting tour since it currently wasn’t being offered due to COVID but would definitely recommend it with Tim when it’s available. Thanks for a great and informative tour!
