These guys are amazing! My partner and I decided to take a pint down the Cam and, put off by the overcrowded punts on the bridge side, we decided to walk down towards Trinity to see if there were any other options. We came across Trinity by chance and have recommended to all our friends since. The guy who drover... More

Sit down relax and enjoy the Cam River punt, with young men full of enthusiasm and exuberance for their City and how it all came about. Very enlightening and fun.

We pre-booked a couples punting tour via Cambridge Blue Punting. We had an excellent guide (Caz) and all the staff at the quay were friendly and welcoming. The trip in the boat was very relaxing - laying back in the boat while Caz told us what we could see and bits of history and stories. It started to rain quite... More

This is the best value you can get for punts in Cambridge, especially if you are a member of the University or a Trinity alumnae. I would recommend to get there early to avoid waiting. The river is also less busy before lunch.

By far the best value for money punting on the Cam, probably one of the cheapest but by no means lacking in quality. Run by lovely educated people that provide all the interesting facts while safely navigating down the busy river, very well steered and felt very safe at all times. We would definitely use the same people next time.

Went with a friend both of us from New Zealand living in London. We decided on a day trip to Cambridge and this was the highlight of our day. Our guide was amazing and she was so knowledgable! She also gave us some other suggestions of things to do in Cambridge which we did and topped our day off perfectly.... More

Rent a punt and take a guided ride through the storied campus. Absolutely magical! If you are feeling brave, tell the guide to step aside and try your own hand at steering the punt. If you are super brave, try climbing OVER the bridge as your punt passes below. ;)

The punts are all the same so may as well go to the cheapest! The owner is very friendly and the whole experience very relaxing. £16 for an hour self-hire.

Recommended by a friend who lives locally to go around to the side of Trinity to hire a punt as it is cheaper, so tried my effort this time to try remember exactly where the place is... Found it and the lady offered us a price which is more honest than the other big commercial ones (who would give the... More
