“Wonderful Walking & Punting Tour of Cambridge”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

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 with much help from Rose in Oxford. The Punting, ably done by our informative Guide, James, was fun and really great to see the other side of Cambridge. We did so enjoy James wonderful sense of humour and also Historical knowledge. Well worth the Punt! Pam S, Lesley & Peter B

“Great punting tour on 7th September 2013”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

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 on boat once again after such a long long time. It's highly recommended!
Thanx Ben! i really had a lot of fun. :-D

“Cambridge walking tour-Saturday 31st August”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

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 has worked its magic we'll be back!

“Overseas Academic Group”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

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 without any fuss. Super

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.
