A brilliant and entertaining Cambridge insight.
Brilliant eye opener on Cambridge city and it’s history. Surprisingly entertaining also, our tour guide on the day, Tony clearly has lived and breathed the city with many of its characters and the sense of humour has rubbed off! Fantastic afternoon, thank you Tony👍

Cambridge Ghost Tour!

Small group, guided Ghost Tour of Cambridge with Tony. This is an excellent choice, only 1 hour and very easygoing. Highly entertaining and informative. Delighted with the evening and would highly recommend.

My wife and I had no intention of taking a guided tour, but after accepting an offer of one through the hotel we were staying in, we are very glad we did. Our guide, Pamela was friendly, informative and she whetted our appetite for further tours in the future. Thank you very much for a perfect morning.

History and college pranks
Nov. 2021
My husband had arranged a guided tour for my birthday (we are both foreigners). We had great fun with Tony as our guide. No boring timelines, but educational, fun, interactive (yes, you will need to stay on your toes!) conversations! Learn about landmarks, nerds, kings, ghosts, college pranks and rivalry with "the other place". Strongly recommend!

Fabulous and informative

I recently had a tour by Tony Rodgers as part of the Cambridge Tour Guides. I was part of a group of 20 people and we all really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend it. Tony was funny and entertaining, but also very professional and knowledgeable, providing interesting and informative facts about the different colleges and Cambridge as a whole. I would definitely recommend it. A fabulous experience. Thank you Tony

Nov. 2021 • Solo
Such an informative and fun way to discover Cambridge. Tony is very knowledgeable and shares both historical facts and anecdotes. I could easily have listened to him for another hour. Or two… You will see the town with a different eye. I really strongly recommend booking a tour with him.

Excellent tour by Tony. His depth of knowledge (people, dates and events) was amazing. We ran well over-time but Tony was happy to keep guiding until all our questions were answered.

Pamela was incredibly knowledgeable about Cambridge and the University and it's alumni. She showed us some quirky bits of the City interspersed with many anecdotes. I highly recommend the tour and Pamela as guide.
