Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Traditional punting in Cambridge, England. College river tours by experienced local guides. With a wealth of local knowledge and many years experience of Cambridge punting we can ensure that your trip along the backs is an experience that you will remember forever.Our punt chauffeurs are well trained and experienced. Because punting is for most a seasonal job many chauffeurs work for a summer and have often only been working for a few months by the time they reach the end of their tenure. Wherever possible we use chauffeurs who have been punting on the Cam for several seasons - either students who return for their holidays each year or local residents who work in a more full time capacity.You won't get a robotic recitation of facts. Whilst every river tour covers as much (or as little) of the history as you require, each chauffeur offers their personal take on the history and background information and every tour is unique. You won't get a robotic recitation of facts.

If you have never been to Cambridge for a visit, ask yourself, why? There is a lot to see and there is a lot to do . See the river and go on a punt. Cruise the waterway with someone else diving the boat. ( Punting). Take a picnic and a drink and relax in the atmosphere that is envied the world over. Seen in many movies, it is a different experience to sailing on a lake or travelling down the Tonle Sap, or the Mekong, or the Chao Phraya! So much a part of England

I chose to hire a boat rather than take a guided tour. The Punting isnt as easy as it looks. It was very hard work to get the boat moving in a straight direction. The sights around the river are beautiful and the hard work is definitely worth it. Be aware of the people trying to sell you the discounted tickets. They are genuine but once you talk to them they will start to convince you as soon as they see you again.

Three day trip to cambridge mainly to check out the University City for future study.
We found the city to be beautiful and not really expensive, good restaurants except the Red Lion Hotel just out of town. The river barge tour was really good and the guide very knowledgable. Walks thru the town were breath taking due to the age and general beauty of the city. looking forward to returning.
