Lovely way to see a host of Cambridge colleges. Route was easy to follow - we started at the railway station but it's a short stroll to the 'official' start from there.

An enjoyable and easy to follow introduction to the City and its colleges. Just about the right amount of information on the points of interest. Additional internet links provided. For me, because you can go at your own pace, much better than a guided tour.
