The private walking tour of Cambridge was a highlight of our two week trip to England/Wales. Michael Brown was both personable and professional…an excellent guide in every way. We felt completely comfortable asking him question after question…and he was so gracious in answering them all. We really felt like we had an insider's look into college life at Cambridge. At...

Really enjoyed the Ghost Walk around Cambridge, great to see lots of hidden streets and things I had never noticed before and hear the ghostly historic tales, my favourite was the one about the Eagle pub. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and added a nice bit of humor. Sweets given for correct answers too!

We're so happy we booked a private tour with Oxbridge Tours- being shown around by a current student meant that we gained insight (and access!) to parts of the city that wouldn't have been available to us otherwise. It was easy and quick to book over the phone and the team were helpful and patient, providing us with information and... More

As a current student she was able to give us real insight into the history of this beautiful and historic city peppered with entertaining snippets about formals... More

Visited the evening walking tour. The tales were interesting and I enjoyed learning the history of the areas of Cambridge. Also discovered some places I'd never been before (despite having lived in Cambridge years ago). The only criticism I have is the disappointment of not being able to go in any of the places talked about and instead just standing... More

Thank you for your comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour too! The reason you have given for 3*s is actually not related our business, and we feel like it shouldn't be held against us - I wanted to write to you to ask if you would consider updating the review to reflect that and make it fair? As... More

I was treated to the Ghost tour of Cambridge by my girlfriend. We both live in the area, however it was a great experience to see Cambridge from a different perspective. The tour lasted around 1hr 15 mins and consisted of viewing the ghost 'hotspots' of the city, brought to life with many a ghost tale from our guide. The... More

As a couple, we were looking for a private guided tour of Cambridge and chose Oxbridge Tours – and weren’t disappointed. Our charming, knowledgeable and entertaining guide, Lauren, took us around Cambridge and through a number of the colleges. Not only was she able to give us the background historical facts but was also able to impart a number of... More

Two families gathered in the dark by the time-eater for a drizzly evening of surprises. Children hooked by sweet rewards, parents by Lauren's clear and entertaining delivery! We wondered whether she was a part of the Trinity ghost club? Such well researched stories of hauntings following deaths of fellow members of the university. A great was to spend Friday night,...
