A great way to see parts of Cambridge I have never visited before. The tour guide was captivating and knowledgeable and kept the group engaged throughout the duration of the 90 minute tour (despite it being a very large group). A fantastically spooky evening of entertainment suitable for all ages.

I went on the ghost tour with friends and it was a great way to start the evening and at a time that allowed for dinner afterwards (which we definitely needed to warm up!). Our guide was very knowledgable and delivered the tour brilliantly. It made our whole group see our surroundings very differently and we are now very keen... More

My husband and I did the tour last Friday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, despite the cold. We thought we knew Cambridge fairly well but the tour took us to all sorts of nooks and crannies that we'd never seen before. We especially enjoyed the walk down to King's Chapel - you felt like you had truly stepped back in... More

I went on a Ghost Tour on Saturday with my housemates and it was terrific. The guide was very friendly and it was clear that she knew what she was talking about. I have been a Cambridgeshire resident for a couple of years now and will not look at Cambridge in the same manner knowing the interesting facts learnt on... More

We took 20 Girl Guides on the Ghost walk last week and Bea was our guide. Bea was very informative and excellent with the girls, they all had a fantastic time and some want to go back again. They liked the questions and especially enjoyed the lollies when they answered correctly. A brilliant way to spend 1.5 hours, thank you.

Lauren was very knowledgable on Cambridge history and answered all the questions we threw at her. The stories were really interesting and gave us a different insight on the City. It was... More

This was a fab evening spending a little over an hour walking with the guide around sites of Cambridge. The stories were fascinating with the haunting stories over the centuries. Lauren our guide was very personable and very easy to listen too. Would recommend definitely.
