Shared Punting Tour in Cambridge

This wonderful shared punting tour in Cambridge is a great way to combine the experience of seeing famous colleges from a unique vantage point, and learning about Cambridge’s history at the same time. Take the stress out of rushing for a specific time slot, as timing is flexible. Simply show up during opening hours to be allocated the next available spot. You’ll have a personal chauffeur to steer the punt, as well as entertain you with stories about Cambridge.

What to Expect
Tours depart from our pontoon. Its address is 35, Beaufort Place, Thompson's Lane, Cambridge, CB5 8AG. On slower days you may be expected to walk upstream to the Quayside in order to check in, it is only around 200 meters.

Shared tours depart throughout the day between 10am-5pm. None of the spaces are reserved, so you can simply turn up at any time and wait for the next available space. In order that tours become shared, tours are set every 15-30 minutes. During weekends you should expect queues during busier times.

All Chauffeurs give a commentary to keep you entertained and tell you some history during your tour 

You will see all seven of the riverside colleges whilst on the tour.

We only use traditional Cambridge punt boats for our tours.

The best way to see Cambridge!

Entertaining and educational tour of Cambridge - despite the weather (grey skies, chilly) the company provided blankets, and the tour still afforded great views of the colleges. The guide presented appropriate and interesting information (by ascertaining what the group knew beforehand) and despite some reservations...More
