Ghostly stories - This was a fun way to spend an hour around Cambridge. Lindsay, our guide, was keen to make sure we all saw the places and heard the stories. I've spent many occasions in Cambridge, but it was great to see some different locations and some old ones from a different perspective.

Spooky tales in quiet corners - We thoroughly enjoyed our ghost tour with our guide Annie. She was lovely and the stories were suitably spooky! A great way to build up an appetite for dinner and see some lesser known bits of the city at the same time.

Add to your 'Must Do' when visiting - Myself and family visiting central Cambridge for first time. Booked a walking 'ghost tour' Met by our guide 'MG' who showed us around some of the area's which have stories associated with 'spooky' events in the history of the city. The tour was fun and informative. 'Spooks' aside, 'MG' provided some interesting history surrounding the long standing reputation of world famous colleges. The cobbled streets and architecture are truly something to behold when up close and personal. Some wonderful old churchyards hidden 'off street' which added to the general ambience of the tour. Recommended

Rainy. but fun! - Despite the rain Francesco made the experience light, bright and funny. Full of interesting facts about the paranormal activities in and around Cambridge Colleges, he was super friendly, supplied other historical information and even recommended a good place to eat! Cheers Francesco, and thanks also for the DNA beer suggestion xx

Well worth the money. - Really enjoyable walk. I don't believe in ghosts, but I loved finding out about the history of paranormal tales in Cambridge. Francesco was an excellent guide and showed us a lot of the area. Would recommend one of these tours to anyone visiting the city.

Spooky walk around Cambridge - Francesco was a great tour guide. Took us on a great walking tour, telling us all the spooky stories. It was great to go in the Eagle Pub and learn it's history. Carol and Cal, Kent.

Walking tour cancelled due to guide phoning in sick. - I would have loved to have given this a great review but unfortunately we were phoned 3 hours before our tour was due to start to say that our tour guide had phoned in sick. We were offered a slot on a tour on a later slot that night but we were already booked to do something else in the evening. (Hence booking the original tour at the earlier time.) We were really disappointed as we had been looking forward to our ghost walk all week as part of our special weekend in Cambridge. Hopefully our refund will be forwarded as promised.
