Having lived close to Cambridge for the majority of my life and not knowing much about its Colleges, I thought a tour might be the answer. After seeing the Oxbridge tour advertised on Groupon I decided to give it a go although I didn't expect it to be great bearing in mind it was so cheap. How wrong was I?!... More

Lauren, a CambridgeUnivesity under-graduate led our tour and we couldn't of asked for anything better. We had booked this through Groupon but I would be more than happy to pay full price. Lauren was an excellent storyteller. This is definat must-do if visiting Cambrige and I would definitely book Oxbridge Tours if I go to Oxford.

A 90 minute tour midday on a Saturday turned into a very enjoyable experience. Our tour guide, Lauren, was a very good, interesting story-teller imparting her knowledge of the colleges with humour and anecdotes not only of her personal experiences but the history of the colleges. It was over far too quickly and has certainly whetted our appetites to join... More

Our guide Harry was well informed and very friendly. We visited many of the colleges and saw inside many buildings. He had an in-depth historical knowledge of many of the colleges and referred to his Pevesner guide where we had questions. Well recommended

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!
