Cambridge - About Your Holiday

Based just outside this famous university city, our break gets underway on Friday evening as we mingle over a welcome drink and dinner.

The following morning takes us into Cambridge itself where we meet up with our local Blue Badge guide for a guided walking tour. This picture postcard English city, home to one of the world’s great universities founded in 1209, is full of places of historical interest and wonderful architecture. Your tour will be both informative and entertaining and will be a great introduction to this diverse city.

There will be plenty of time in the afternoon to explore, admire the architecture of the beautiful museums and art galleries or discover the quaint passages set around the historic market. Perhaps visit Kings College and its spectacular chapel and beautiful medieval stained glass. (entrance fee will apply). Weather permitting, take a stroll through Cambridge University Botanic Garden with its display of over 8,000 different plant species in 40 acres of beautiful landscapes.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Dress Code
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
