Terrific campus walking tour with Luca

The highlight of our time at Trinity College was the walking tour with Luca. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining – the perfect mix for an outstanding tour guide.

Guided campus tour highly recommended

We took the guided tour of the campus that included a visit to the library. The tour with Sarah was excellent – she was bright, funny and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful and the stories behind some of the buildings are fascinating. The old library was of course amazing as well.
