Jeff, our American guide, certainly knows his stuff plus and he livened things up with a few jokes as well. Good loud voice which meant I did not need to put my hearing aid on!

Hi, I'm afraid I can't answer re distance from the station as we didn't travel by train. The meeting point was at the gates of one of the colleges, I'm 99% sure it was Trinity, so I'm sure someone would point you in the... More
