What are people saying about the Cambridge Audio Tour App?
This is not a review of the app, but of the tour I was on today. Our punter was a young student from the University of Kent- living in Ely. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining and will advise all my friends to ask for him when they book.
Excellent informative tour given by Jake on 19.10.22. Personable chauffer. Answered all questions and if he didn’t know, he said so, instead of making it up. Company not the all sing and dancing company lodged at the bridges, worth walking a little bit further up river.
