We got fantastic reviews for this tour last time we ran it:

"Just signed up to this hour and a half expecting a nice walk around some of Cambridge talking about the history of food in Cambridge, expected mainly tourists to be part of the tour. Actually got bombarded with local delights, tastings, a visit to the out of bounds college dining hall (like something out of harry potter's world), friendly people, a great guide - Maggie who was clearly knowledgeable in the area and very enthusiastic. All the people in my group were locals to Cambridgeshire which was really nice but it would be a great and slightly different insight into this amazing city. We finished with wine tasting in one of Cambridge's best wine bars. I would recommend this to anyone and just wish I'd have taken more people with me on the tour."

"I joined the Eat festival variant of this tour. Our guides were friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. The tiny, quirky historical details gave us a personal insight into the people and events which shaped the modern city. The food theme of this annual variation on the tour was charming, providing a slightly different insight into Cambridge city life. The whole group enjoyed this tour immensely."
