What you'll do
You will be led through some of the most typical colleges of Cambridge University, accompanied by a graduate student with rich knowledge of the university's past and present; I will be excited to share my experience of all the 'eccentricities' and 'traditions' students find themselves in, and be ready for numerous urban myths and tales loved by locals as well!

I am a graduate student at Cambridge University with 4 years' experience of tour guiding, in the stunningly beautiful university town of Cambridge. As a student and long-time resident, I am able to offer a unique perspective on the history, traditions and honours of this world-famous university, and will answer all of your curiosities about living and studying at Cambridge. I speak both English and Mandarin.
Where you'll be
Starting at Queens' College mathematical bridge, we cross through King's College, The Backs, and go past Trinity and St John's in a row. Depending on availability (some colleges have construction work going on during holidays with no visitor access) we may also visit other central colleges such as Pembroke, Peterhouse and Christ's. We will also see other landmarks such as Corpus Clock, Eagle Bar, Old Cavendish Laboratory and Great St Mary's.

Here's my experiences with Xueyao 1. Passionate - Xueyao is passionate in sharing her knowledge and experience in Cambridge. You can ask her more questions and she wouldn't hesitate to answer them. 2. Knowledgeable - Xueyao knows a lot and she knows it well. She managed to answer most of the questions I asked. 3. Value for money - Xueyao covered my admission fees, that alone would probably cost the tour fee itself. In short, I got a free tour.
