We booked the tour of Cambridge Colleges and were not disappointed! Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Despite living locally for 30 years, we learnt a great deal on the two hours of the tour. I highly recommend this as a great way to spend an afternoon in Cambridge.

It was fun for the price. The guide was very engaged and the stories about Cambridge and the colleges were interesting, but don't expect anything scary or actors making you jump... It's not that sort of thing.

A really good ghost tour and would thoroughly recommend it! Lovely to go round some of the back streets of Cambridge you dont usually see and lovely to hear some of the history of the colleges too. Our guide was very knowledgeable and told the tales really well. Would go again!

We booked to go on the ghost tour this weekend. It was interesting listening to some spooky tales of Cambridge. I didn't think it was too scary (no creepy actor in a cloak :) ) in fact, it was quite like a history lesson & for this reason I would recommend it for young & old alike. It was well... More

The tour guide was excellent and made it a really fun, and informative, evening. We've both have lived near Cambridge for years but still learnt some interesting things about Cambridge that we didn't know including where the old Hangman's house is! It was a really nice thing to do before heading out for a meal in Cambridge on a Friday... More

My husband and I took part in the tour last Saturday with Molly. Despite the cold evening the whole crowd was enrapted with the articulate and informative stories that painted some colour into the history of the old college buildings. I reccommend it!

I was not looking forward to a night spent in the cold but Lauren absoutely made the evening. The way she told the stories was brilliant and kept us all entertained for 90 minutes. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cambridge.

All 4 of us loved this - including our two children under 15 who were not looking forward to a night out in the cold. Lauren was brilliant; incredibly knowledgable, enthusiastic and engaging for almost two hours on a very cold February evening. We all learnt many things and even though I have lived within a stone's throw of Cambridge... More

The whole family really enjoyed this tour with its combination of spooky stories, many with a comic twist and historic places. Lauren, our guide, was very engaging and delivered the stories with enthusiasm. It was a great family activity. It would be a really good experience for visitors to Cambridge if they want to try something different alongside the usual... More
