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

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.
