We were able to hire a bit for punting without booking in advance, it was a great route around a rugby field island. Staff were efficient and great trainers in how to steer a boat. Punting is a lot tougher than it looks!!

We hired a peddle boat as we thought this would be the easier option to navigate ourselves. Luckily the sun was out so it was quite a relaxing enjoyable hour. £25 for the hour is a little bit pricy for having to steer the boat yourself, with additional charges for every 15 minutes later you are. The staff weren’t overly friendly or enthusiastic. The experience you have with this company and experience is really what you make it.

If you are expecting a history of Oxford don't be surprised if you are disappointed. If you complain, this is sold as a "chauffeur" Experience .

An enjoyable and relaxing hour exploring the Cherwell, and edge of the Thames. We chose the paddle boat, which worked well for the 4 of us…perhaps even more so for the one who, despite being the youngest, decided it was too much like hard work, and just lay there! At least we were able to make better progress than the ones who risked punting! Not cheap, but voted a winner by our group We were rather envious of the party in a punt with their Bucks Fizzes, and an extremely competent guide and punter….. perhaps we should try that next time!

When we arrived the queue was quite long but the staff had a well organised system and we were quickly given a boat. We paid £35 for a chauffeured punting experience. We had Sam who gave us a great chauffeured ride along the canal. He was friendly and we had an enjoyable experience. The journey was peaceful and we passed the colleges, bridges and meadows. Although it was a little bit pricey, it's not something that you can do at many places and we had fun.
