Explore the beautiful university town of Cambridge whilst being privately chauffeur-driven in one of our multi award winning Model Ts.
Our vehicles are replicas of the famous 1910 Model T Ford, with the exception that ours are fully electric and have an extra row of seats, yet the attention to detail is so accurate they have been mistaken for the original by numerous car enthusiasts.
Our Model Ts can seat up to seven passengers (five adults + two children), so are perfect for families, small group get togethers and special occasion parties.
Our tour begins in the heart of the city and then proceeds on a journey for you to discover many of Cambridge's historic colleges and breathtaking sights.
As our vehicles never exceed 20mph and create no engine noise, you'll be able to blissfully take in and see for yourself why Cambridge is the charming picturesque place that so many people love to visit.
Your driver will show you all of our tours' points of interest, as well as also sharing some interesting tales that you probably won't find in guide books.
We can either meet and greet you at our recommended collection point on Bridge Street (outside the Galleria Restaurant) near the punt operators, or you can request where you would like to be collected from within our tour route for extra convenience.
Just let us know if you are near to a particular shop, restaurant, central hotel or by one of our tours' points of interest (as shown on our map), and we'll come and collect you.
If a tour of the city isn't enough and you really want to spoil yourself, we also have an extended route which includes everything in our usual tour, as well as a trip to the tranquil village of Grantchester.
Listed in the 1086 Doomsday Book and said to have the world's highest concentration of Nobel Prize winners, this newly popular tourist destination was once home to both the accomplished poet Rupert Brooke and Pink Floyd band member David Gilmour.
More recently Grantchester is also where the hit ITV show (of the same name) is mainly filmed and during our tour, you'll get to see where the likes of actors James Norton, Robson Green and Tom Brittney (just to name a few), play their roles for this popular TV detective drama set in the 1950's.
*Our extended Grantchester Tour is only available May to September*

As an independent local company, we fully support Cambridge City Council's aim in making the city zero emission capable by 2028, which in turn encouraged us to make the decision (when we began our company planning), to ensure our vehicles would be fully compliant from the offset and well before the council's target date.
Our Model Ts are therefore (and without any doubt), much kinder to the environment than any other vehicle offering a similar service in and around Cambridge, so when you ride with us you can sit back, relax and enjoy the sights knowing that your tour hasn't created any unnecessary air pollution.
Our tour of the city lasts approximately 25 minutes, and our extended route with a trip to Grantchester lasts approximately 50 minutes.
We shall look forward to meeting you for an experience you'll never forget.
