This was our first visit to Cambridge and what a wonderful experience, Our Guide (our original guide was sick so we think it was Graham who was called into to help us) was so very informative, relaxed and very friendly, it was such a great Historical Journey and we would thoroughly recommend to others. Ben Firman, the organiser was great... More

For me this was not the first time punting. I've been to Cambridge 2 years ago and gone punting with a 2 quid discount and of course that was fantastic. And this year, revisiting this place, i was blessed to go again for free! am truly delighted to have seen the wonderful views along the river and enjoyed the atmosphere... More

I took my 80+ year old mother, who was born in Cambridge, on this tour. Although we (both!) found it exhausting,it was well worth it . The guide, a Cambridge graduate himself, was superb-whimsical, challenging, intelligent and knowledgeable he was our Pied Piper with the depth of a Ph D, but the levity and wit of Pope. Once, the embrocation... More

I used Oxbridge Tours for the recent visit of 13 academics to Cambridge.The experience was of a friendly, helpful and superbly efficient organisation who managed to fulfil all requests despite frequent changes and the relaxed attitiude towards timings of the guests. The translator was educated and competent and handled the request to morph the walking tour into a shopping trip... More

We used this company to help us explore Cambridge, they were brilliant. The tour guide was lovely, well informed and adaptable to the audience. The punting organisation was great. The company made our day a great day! Would definitely recommend you to use them and I would again in the future.

I was traveling the UK and made stops in both Oxford and Cambridge. I was in Cambridge on a Tuesday and it wasn't as busy as usual according to the local folk but I really wanted to go on a walking tour and see the colleges from the inside. With no walking tours going the guys advertising them asked if... More

We needed a local guide to provide commentary on particular locations in Cambridge -- it was a private tour with very specific requirements -- and Harry proved to be wonderfully knowledgeable, charming, and accommodating. I couldn't be more pleased. It was especially helpful to have the perspective of a student who not only knew the history of the town and... More

My family recently enjoyed a walking tour of Cambridge organised with Oxbridge Tours. Despite it being a bitterly cold day the guide was good-humoured and entertaining, took the tour at a pace to suit us and even ran over time to ensure that we were given as much information as possible about the key attractions and sites of interest. Our... More

We did a private tour and it was outstanding. In addition to being able to enter areas not open to the public, our guide Gerald, a doctoral student, was a great source on the history of the school and also gave a good understanding of what it's like to be a Cambridge student since he had also been an undergrad...

We chose this tour as the reports on Trip Advisor were good. There was no structure to our tour. Our guide made no effort to find out if we had been to Cambridge before or what we knew or what we wanted to see and do. Highlights included going into Kings chapel, but overall we felt the tour was poorly... More
