Our guide was very friendly and informative. She did her best to engage the small group of 5 (you pay more for a smaller boat but it's worth it) and gave good insight to the sites we passed. At £15 per head I'm sure there are cheaper options but we had only a short wait, great weather and a fairly... More

I took my 13 year old son and his friend. They both learnt to punt quickley, and enjoyed talking to other people on the boats. A quality fun afternoon. The Trinity boat staff were friendly and helpful and complimented both boys on their new found skills. No fuss, no up selling and it was the best price on the river.... More

I've been to many tours in UK but this is definitely the best so far. Caz was our guide and she was just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Thanks to her voice and tone it was so easy to enter magical wonderland and just enjoy tour. Fascinating stories, entertaining commentary of river Cam and whatever you can see from it. Definitely a must see... More

As locals with guests visiting from another part of the U.K., we thought we'd take them punting. We went along to Trinity punts after we saw relatively good rates on the website for self-hire (£16) but when we arrived, were told that we'd need two punts (at an inflated rate vs the web price). This made it a less attractive... More

We chose Trinity College Punts after reading good reviews and phoning them. We weren't disappointed. Easy to find through the black gates off Garret Hostel Lane. Lovely, friendly, helpful man at the hiring point. A quick tutorial and the 6 of us were off for a wonderful 2 hours on the River Cam. Cost £18ph (26.8.16) Situated approximately at the... More

I went there alone hoping to be able to get into a group tour. Was told that the max wait would be 10-15 minutes so naturally, I waited. It started to fill up and many groups left before I was able to. Then they tried to put me on a boat with 6 people already on it but the best... More

We were taken by Caz for a wonderful 45 minutes punt along the 'backs' yesterday - 17th Aug . I have been on a few of these trips over the years but this was by far the best. My wife and I did a trip along the River in Chicago with commentary last year but this was so much more... More

Went here with some friends and thought the smaller set up would be better than the larger companies. Was met by a guy who said we we needed to wait for some more customers. He then punted off with his punt full leaving us sitting on the bank. Two other staff were around but made no effort to talk to... More

We got a self-hire punt with them for 18 pounds per hour. It's worth every penny. I have "punted" just once before, so it took a while to get used to it. However, even though I'm not fit, it was OK (but tiring). The river was full, as it was a sunny summer Sunday. Lots of inexperienced punters like myself,... More
