Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked Sophie for a literary tour of Cambridge. She was brilliant, full of interesting facts and details, charming and friendly. She personalised the tour to suit our interests. Would thoroughly recommend.

Sophie gave us an excellent science tour. Sophie was really informative in a fun and engaging way and we all had a fabulous time (our age group ranged from 16- 50+) and we all leant lots about the famous scientists that are linked with Cambridge. A really great way to see and learn about beautiful Cambridge. I would highly recommend and definitely book on other walking tours in the future. Thank you Sophie.

My husband and I (we are American) and our two British friends took a tour of Cambridge last week guided by Sophie Smiley. We all agreed it was the best guided tour we have had anywhere. Sophie’s vast knowledge of the University and the city was impressive, but not surprising given that she is a Cambridge native and has close familial connections to the University. She deftly wove the subjects we requested—history, architecture, espionage, and literature—in her gentle and engaging manner. We learned about spies from the 16th to the 20th centuries, about Sir Christopher Wren’s first building commission, and about the University’s origin when Oxford scholars and students took refuge in Cambridge. Sophie is delightful, friendly, and enthusiastic, and conducts a most excellent tour. We recommend her wholeheartedly.

Such an interesting tour of Mill Road Cemetery and on to Barnwell. Sophie has a wealth of knowledge and so many stories. We even visited a garden not open to the public, by prior arrangement.
I'd thoroughly recommend a guided tour!

An excellent tour of a lesser known part of Cambridge with a brilliant guide. Visitors don't normally think to visit this area but it is well worth it.

We met Sophie for the 'Spies Tour' and expected to hear all about Blunt, Burgess, Philby and Maclean but were happily surprised to be taken back in time many centuries to a whole other world of spies throughout the history of Cambridge as a place of learning. It was fascinating to listen to Sophie as she took us to so many different places, colleges, chapels, pubs and hotels - the haunts of spies of old and those heard of more recently. Sophie was charming, engaging with us all, and so knowledgeable. Her delivery with a bit of theatre was very entertaining. We would happily book for another of her tours when back in Cambridge.

I thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour, I could've listened to Sophie for hours! Very knowledgeable and easy to listen to, and clearly very passionate about/interested in what she was telling us. Very accommodating. Would highly recommend!
