I'm so glad we stumbled across Trinty Punts. The price was very reasonable (£18 for an hour) and staff were very informative. A really fun way to see The Backs.

After pushing back our punt a few times, (due to an early afternoon session at the pub) we had a great time drifting down the river taking in the Cambridge culture! Our guide Patrick was fantastic, very engaging and accommodating would highly recommend.
