Had a great tour today led by Fransico ! This PHD student was informative , humorous and a delight to spend time with. Followed up by a punting tour led by Cambridge resident Ollie who we enjoyed listening to as he led us along the river. The overly talkative American guest was a bit tiring, but you never know who you will share a boat with . Both recommended!

I had a great punting tour. Lucky that I was on the boat alone. My guide Campbell was friendly. I enjoy chatting with him a lot.

Francesco from Venice was wonderful. Very kind to people, didn't lose them when they lingered, a really sophisticated person and charming guide. The time went quickly and we had gorgeous weather. He spoke clearly and loudly and we only had 5 people on the tour, so it was great!!

Had a very informative and interesting tour around Cambridge led by Francesco, he had great knowledge and shared some really good stories about the various places we visited. Even though we booked a shared walk was only two of us so felt like a private tour.

This is definitely the highlight of my trip there. I booked the 12 noon trip and I got so lucky that the weather is perfectly sunny, the River is not too crowded and there's only me and one other guest in the boat. IT WAS AMAZING. Harry, our guide, is very cool with his stories, lets his voice be clearly heard because I was sitting in the front, and he let us try punting the boat ourselves. Highly recommend and worth the money!
