David gave us a great introduction to the organization and history of the university, especially about many noteworthy scientists and mathematicians. He peppered his discussion with interesting stories about many characters in the university's past. It was a great tour for the students (19 and 20 year-olds). I am very glad they saw it.

David was fantastic. He fashioned the tour immediately to our likes and interests, and covered an incredible amount of ground during our short time together. We would never have seen as much or enjoyed Cambridge as much as we did without him. His knowledge of places, events and history was outstanding, and we felt privileged to have had David's expertise as our introduction to such a special city. Thank you !

We had a fantastic tour with David. I studied abroad at Cambridge many years ago, but I learned so much on this tour. He facilitated touring the college where I studied; he made it a special trip for me and my family. My teenaged daughters were entertained. Tour was an appropriate length, and dramatically increased the efficiency of our time in Cambridge. Great time.

We spent a beautiful morning with David in Cambridge. He's knowledgeable, kind and friendly... simply one of the very best guides we've ever had. He was able to accommodate our family (we had several special requests) which helped us make the most of our time in Cambridge. We simply loved discovering this beautiful town with David and can't rate him highly enough!

My only regret is that I did not book a tour with David earlier. I have been wandering around old town Cambridge for nine months and in a matter of 90 minutes he pointed out countless details and places I had missed. David is a brilliant tour guide who goes above and beyond— even calling places he might take his tours ahead of time to see if there are any last minute complications or schedule changes. I will recommend him to anyone who asks me for a great local guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Simone, thank you very much for your very kind comments. It is especially pleasing to know that you and your family enjoyed the tour as I certainly enjoyed showing you all something of this remarkable city. Best wishes David_

The tour met entirely my expectation. David has given me and my husband useful information not only the scenary of the Cambridge but also information to facilitate us understand about the university. My 11 year old loves the city and the university. In a composition he wrote after the London Paris trip, the Cambridge visit is one of his highlights. Thanks very much to David.

We appreciated David's willingness to talk with us ahead of time to tailor the tour to our interests and needs. He met us at the designated time and place and recognized us as the tourists we were...hesitation crossing those pesky drive-on-the-left streets. He proved to be knowledgeable about the nooks and crannies of Cambridge, as well as the bigger historical context and the complexities of the Colleges and the University. He adjusted his pace to ours and, all-in-all, we had a fascinating time. Thanks!
