“Nice”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Nice for a walk close to the city centre and very accessible. Lovely location but can be busy with cyclist whizzing past

“Punting Pleasure”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

A punt on the Cam gives you a new perspective on the City. Peacefully gliding by the parks and Colleges with a good commentary from the Punter(?) relaxes you and gives you a new appreciation of what you are seeing ....from the magnificence of St John College, the delight of the Wren library or the mystery of the Mathematical Bridge....a great way to travel. You may also be lucky as we were to see the classic leaving the punt pole in the water trick and the huge embarrassment on the face of the poor Punter!!

“pretty”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Go for a punt but take a bag of money. Lovely way to see the grandeur of the colleges. The backs are probably the best bit of Cambridge

“Quiet backwater punting”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Beautiful setting. The willow clad banks meander behind ancient colleges and through the town thronged with young punters. Idyllic pastoral scene in the centre of a bustling town full of culture and entertainment.

“Great experience.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We took a trip on a punt with a lovely young man as our guide. It was a beautiful day and the river looked fantastic but our guide/punter made it great experience. His enthusiasm and passion for the river and punting together with his general knowledge made it fun and informative. A must if you visit Cambridge.
