Having grown up in Cambridge I have been punting myself a few times but I had never been on a tour. I presumed the tours were all for tourists and I would be wasting my money being a local. I was wrong -the tour was incredible! I didn’t realise there were so many punting companies and that the ones who had bothered me in town were not from Scudamore’s at all (Scudamore’s Chauffeur’s are the ones in uniform; white shirt, blue waistcoats and trousers and a cute boater hat!) The first person we spoke to was polite and friendly towards us – didn’t hassle us and did very well dealing with competition from other punt companies who would not stop shouting prices at us – I didn’t even understand what they were selling! our tour guide was bloody brilliant - I was expecting the usual Cambridge stories I have heard a million times before, but learnt loads about the history of the city, and the colleges, the founders, the river – I never knew there was so much history right under my nose! Between booking on to our tour and leaving, we had enough time to grab a drink from the pub and sit in the sun and were allowed to take them on the boats with us…dreamy. I need to stop going on about this now but it was great – thank you Scudamore’s!
