I really enjoyed this hop-on hop-off tour. It helped me get the layout of the city before I went and explored on my own.

We enjoyed the bus in Cambridge. The stops were easy to find and the audio was clear. It was a very chilly day so the tour made it easier to deal with the weather.

A woinderful overview of Cambridge. Make the loop first and decide which things you would like to "Hop Off" and see the second time around. Lots of informative commentary. Definately priced right.

A great way to see the city in a limited amount of time. This hop-on hop-off was better than most as it used a recorded commentary that was easy to understand and complete. An excellent value.

The tour information was excellent and the trip around Cambridge was fun and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend. Only downside was that our tickets stated that the buses stop running around 4.30pm, which was really early for the hop on hop off experience as we were doing a day trip. So do check!

Tour was great, very informative. There was a problem with one of the buses - one side of the bus could not be used as the plugs for the commentery were not working.

Construction near the train station made finding the bus stop difficult. Trip itself was VERY informative. The website I signed up from described numerous items related to Isaac Newton that would be seen on the tour. Problem was that there was not ONE mention of Newton during the entire tour. Honestly, that was my only reason for visiting Cambridge. As a general tour though, it was very good.

There is nothing easier than hopping on and off at your leisure. A must do!

This tour would be great if one had plenty of time. At least on the day we traveled the Hop-on/Hop off coach was always running late. Once I witnessed the drivers stopping for a leisurely conversation while behind schedule. We missed our 1545 train back to London but were fortune enough to catch the next one. Also finding the tour at the train station was quite difficult, so I suggest a sign or something. The tour itself was very interesting with everyone getting a headphone which jacks into the wall and available in number of languages. We took the tour primarily to get out to the Cambridge American cemetery and memorial. That cemetery is a can't miss for Americans who care about World War II. I can recommend this coach to anyone who might be staying in Cambridge and don't literally have a train to catch.

This was OK but really feel you could walk to a lot of the places as those stops out of town did not hold that much interest for us. But Cambridge is just lovely and well worth a visit!
