Away from the main tourist area is Trinity punts that offers both punt hire and chauffeured punting.
Share a chaffeured punt for 12.50 each (up to 5 people) or book a whole punt to yourself. We had a punt to ourselves for gbp 40.It may be slightly more in busy periods. Lasted about 40-45 minutes.
Interesting idiosyncratic talk on the colleges and bridges and some useful suggestions of things to do.
Great fun.
Only a very short 2 minute walk from town centre in Garret Hostel Lane off Trinity Lane off Trinity Street.

We decided we wanted a private tour for the 2 of us, which isn't normally what the chauffeurs want to do because they don't make as much money but Trinity Punts were more than happy to do it. The lady who took us on the tour gave us plenty of interesting information but was not constantly talking so we could relax and enjoy our surroundings. Beware of the companies operating without a license or insurance, this one is fully licensed and insured. It is a bit tricky to find the entrance, when you go down Garret Hostel Lane, you'll see some large blue gates on the left hand side leading through to one of the college buildings which also takes you round to the side of the river. We were happy to tip as they had been accommodating of our request for a private tour and the service was excellent but it is not mandatory. The regular price is £12.50 per person and the tour lasts around 45 minutes.

Punting along the Cam River was a fab experience. They have wonderful guides narrating to you the history of these colleges with so much humor that you actually enjoy a lesson of history, which might otherwise seem boring.
You can also have close encounters with the ducks and swans that come to you looking for food.

Surely, punting should be on your must-do list when in Cambridge. Remember to bargain for the prices on the tour - lots of competition around so you could choose your deal.

Don't miss out on punting down the river! Our guide Ed was so informative, fun and....skilled! After much hesitation Ed convinced me to have a turn at steering the punt, proud to say i did not steer into a wall! What a great feeling lazing in the punt, enjoying a bottle of cider and taking in all the beautiful sights down the river. Highly recommended to any travelers through Cambridge. When I next make it to Cambridge you will definitely see me cruising down the river!

On June 9, 2012, my husband, son, daughter-in-law and myself enjoyed a lovely time punting along the Cam River with, Freddie, as our guide. He was very informative and steered the punt, very well. I would definitely recommend Trinity Punts, to any and all, heading to Cambridge, England; you will not be disappointed. Thank you for the great experience!
