we really wanted to do this tour when we went into Cambridge on Wednesday 13th October 2021. but was told it only runs on Saturday and Sunday.

The best to do if you don't know the place! Great expetience Bus driver very accommodating Only I must say, I wish I knew that you can purchase these with punting tour at the same time which will be a lot cheaper.

Excellent trip around Cambridge- our lady driver was most excellent- her driving skills were amazing negotiating all the tight turns etc. The commentary was again excellent and enhanced a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of sightseeing- good value for money.

By starting later and operating at decent times. I had planned to go but couldn't get to Cambridge earlier. Bus had gone and there wasn't another till the afternoon. Itiis advertised as running but it seems there is only one bus and it only operates at weekends. I didnt have time to wait till the afternoon and could have ended up stranded. I was around Cambridge all day and never saw this bus, I'm not sure it exists.

After experiencing the open top bus tour in Oxford a few days ago I was very excited to experience a similar tour in Cambridge. After accessing the map online I go to a stop on Downing Street to wait for a bus. After waiting for 20 minutes I realise no bus has turned up. I also find it strange that I have not seen any buses since arrival in the city. I then search the internet to find that sightseeing buses in Cambridge only run on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Absolutely ridiculous. London, Oxford, Bath, all have sightseeing bus tours everyday of the week but not Cambridge. It’s a shambles. Not everyone travels to Cambridge on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays and thousands of people are missing out on an education about the city. A real shame. I did wonder if the reason for having no bus tours was to try and force tourists to attend the walking tour but I visited the city with an elderly relative so this was not possible.
