Turned up without reservation and rented a self drive punt for 5. No fuss, efficient service and quality, comfortable boat. All for about half the price of more commercial competitors.

We had a lovely tour today, the 3 of us were joined by another couple to fill a boat for a chauffeured tour up and down the river. Our guide, a lady with 12 years experience on the punts, was fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. We had cushions and blankets to sit on so it was a really comfortable and... More

We were decended on in the centre of town by the river, and hoped that we would find somewhere less busy, less pressured and cheaper! £19 per person for 45 minutes seemed a little steep! Later in the day near to Garret Hostel Lane we spied the chalk marks taking us to Tinity Punts which we found through the arched... More

The punt was comfortable, with padded seat mats and rugs and umbrellas, just in case. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, fun and interesting. It was amazing navigating through the many punts, many of which were tourists, punting for the first time. It was a leisurely, unhurried hour, well spent. The views of the Colleges from the river are excellent, so... More

Tucked away at the end of Garret Hostel Lane - follow the chalk marks on the walls! Very reasonably priced and comfortable punts, with umbrellas provided 'just in case'. Knowledgeable punter and entertaining too. Highly recommended, and much better than the other, higher priced companies I've used before.

Our guide was knowledgeable and a skillful punter - unlike a lot of others we witnessed on the canal! Definitely recommend paying for the guided trip rather than the self drive option. The canal is very beautiful and calming, with great views of the colleges backing onto it, and lovely bridges to navigate under. I would recommend going when the... More

We had a very knowledgeable guide he was very polite and sweet. We heard some of the other guides from other companies and they were definitely not as knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the trip and I loved having someone to take us though we could have done it ourselves. I would have preferred to be by ourselves but it was... More

A really nice girl driver took all the way around. You can heal all the funny stories from her. You can also go to the pub next to the water if you want a glass of cider))
