The punting boats have become one of the most popular ways to see the famous bridges and colleges along the River Cam. Your chauffeured tour will pass under 8 bridges including the Bridge of Sighs and the Mathematical Bridge. Here you can take time to absorb the magnificent surroundings of the city and take in all its history.

Quaint and village-like Greenwich is a delightful place to spend the morning. We visit the top of the hill in London’s oldest Royal park - here we are offered a stunning panoramic view of London... we discover the history and significance of the Royal Observatory, the Meridian Line and Greenwich Mean Time. At the bottom of the hill next to the River Thames we see the Cutty Sark, which built in 1869, was the fastest sailing ship of her day - and also see England’s tallest building. We have free time to enjoy the famous market and Greenwich’s other attractions.

We continue our journey to Cambridge, where our tour leader takes us on a walking tour of this charming market town which boasts an extraordinar combination of rural tranquility and architectural splendor. You discover why Cambridge is famed for the excellence of its university. We visit Trinity College, the largest in Cambridge. It was here that Isaac Newton, inspired by a falling apple, formulated the law of gravity.

We visit the Fitzwilliam museum one of the oldest and most important in England. Here we can enjoy fine works of art by Cezanne and Picasso amongst others.
