I had a wonderful time on this tour, and was pleasantly surprised by how much I learnt about the city, alongside the ghost stories!! As an ex-student, it was interesting to learn something new. Our guide Lauren was not only an excellent speaker and guide, but she was also charming, friendly and willing to answer all questions. What a lovely... More

Great tour. The guide was funny, engaging, friendly and most of all very knowledgeable. A wonderful way to see the Colleges and back streets that you would take for granted otherwise.

Fantastically engaging and entertaining tour. Having lived in Cambridge for quite a few years, the tour showed me so much about the city I hadn't noticed.The storytelling was wonderful- I hadn't even noticed how far we had walked!Would recommend this highly for those visiting the city for the first time, and anyone who enjoys a good spooky story!

I went on the evening ghost tour with family and friends, and had a wonderful time! Our guide (Lauren) was a dynamic and fantastically fun storyteller, spiking everybody's interest in city's quirks and traditions. The tour was 90 minutes long, but we didn't really have to walk very far at all to get a great sense of history - there's... More

I took my three teens on a tour of Cambridge. We all found the tour interesting and informative. Our guide was lovely and welcoming and enthusiastic about Cambridge. She also showed an interest in future Cambridge students and gave tips on the application and interview process and what life is like as a Cambridge student which was great for my... More

Informative and well presented tour of Cambridge colleges by brilliant student Saskia who did a very good job despite group being somewhat larger than normal. This may have been due to tour taking place on a bank holiday Sunday. Saskia gave us a full 90 minutes, possibly slightly over in fact! Well done. Would recommend. Visited 24th May 2015

The tour was great. We got shown a huge amount and the tour guide was incredibly friendly and well informed. We have booked another one to take other members of our family who weren't able to attend this time around. A really enjoyable way to spend the day in Cambridge!
