Beginners tour of Cambridge

Seeing around Cambridge, as we've never been before, and being told interesting facts and info by a local.

We couldn’t download the app and were therefore unable to access the tour. I asked for help but nothing was explained. I would suggest that people are told to download the voice app before they pay. We would have loved to learn about Cambridge while we were there.

Hi Penny, We're sorry you couldn't install the VoiceMap app. Did you see the instructions listed under Before You Go? It's available through the App Store and Google Play, and getting set up should only take a few minutes. Who did you ask for help? We didn't received a support request from you, either by email or on our UK support line. Was it Viator? Their agents try, but don't understand this self-guided product unfortunately. Please let us know where you got stuck! You can reach me by email at
It was an excellent way to get you walking around the town. I would recommend the punting along the backs to complete th

We enjoyed all parts of the experience. It was especially good to be able to go at your own pace. We stopped to watch the punts on Magdalene Bridge for ages and carried on when we were ready and no need to keep stopping and starting the audio.
Really good value for money

We were able to go at our own pace as the GPS knew exactly where we were at all times. We really enjoyed our tour.
Lovely afternoon

Old city, new tech
, Jun 2021
The tour was good with lots of interesting points around Cambridge. There were quite a few dead spots towards the end, with big gaps where we were just walking. The narrator was making an effort to speak softly, but the result was that it was slightly like an ASMR soundtrack. But overall it was very good, extremely good use of technology around this old city. Well worth the money.
Great value

Could not get the app to open. Tried for approximately 30 minutes and it continued to loop me back around each time.

It was a great tour with a personal touch from recorder, who clearly loves Cambridge. It was so easy to use filled with some great facts. Overall very pleased

Some interesting snippets of information, but not anywhere near enough. If all the speech on the trip was put together, I doubt whether it amounted to much more than half an hour - needs to be beefed up!!
