Found this app very clunky and difficult to use. It kept shutting down mid tour and was hard to reopen and find our place again. We gave up with it in the end! Very frustrating. Glad it was relatively cheap.

As an American expat, I thought these podcast walking tours are a phenomenal introduction to Cambridge. In past tourist trips to England I spent a few hours walking the streets and taking a punting tour (also recommended). But now that I live about an hour away, I wanted to get to know the city better. Before our trip, we looked around online for a traditional walking tour that would give a good general introduction to Cambridge, but nothing we found seemed quite suited for us. Then my wife found these. So glad she did. We had time for 3 of the 4 on our short overnighter there (plan to do the 4th the next time we go). Though they each have a subject emphasis, taken together they effectively use exposition and story telling to give an overview of its history, how the university system works, what student life is like, and so on. When listening to the description at each stop, it's a good idea to keep one eye on your phone screen. They include various pictures and graphical content that adds content to the words and aids in contextual understanding. And many times, they show a street view with arrows showing where to go next — very helpful. If they make more tours for Cambridge, I hope they make one focused on the architecture. That's one part of the Cambridge experience that was a little too light for my liking. For a fraction of the price of a traditional walking tour, you get 2 to 4 times amount of tour.

You're always going to be a little apprehensive with apps these days but this experience was actually brilliant and for anyone who wants to explore Cambridge by themselves or with friends, this was the perfect way to do so! It's like a podcast that takes you around the city along different routes. You can pause and play whenever you want and it's very well written and presented!

This was such a great experience, particularly given the importance of social distancing! We managed to explore Cambridge by ourselves for the afternoon with these podcast tours. We saw all the main sites in Cambridge as well as some of the more undiscovered ones. Really great experience!
