“Excellent Day!”

Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: At Go Punting, we offer exclusive private river tours of the ‘College Backs’. Glide along and discover Cambridge’s extraordinary history from the comfort of a chauffeured punt. Rest assured, all of our tours are ‘private’- we will not add separate parties together to fill the punt. We feel this is the best way to unwind and take in the 7 colleges and 8 bridges that feature along the willow-fringed surroundings of the River Cam.So if you’re looking for a memorable get together ... Go Punting!

“Excellent Day!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

A group of us met in Cambridge on a sunny day and decided to go punting. We took a bottle of wine on there with us, it was great fun going along the river and some even had a go at punting themselves. It was excellent value and great fun! I am hoping to go again soon!

“A fabulous experience”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This was our first visit to Cambridge and we really enjoyed the punting very much. I would definitely recommend this place as a day trip from the central London. =)

“A must do activity”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

For first time Cambridge visitors, you must go punting, period. That's the best way to see Cambridge University. highly recommend!

You may share the punt or rent a punt and do it yourself. I persoanlly recommend that you share with someone do the punting for you.

The trip usually takes about 45 - 60 minutes. November/December timeframe is easier to get punting without waiting in line, but cold. Summer time, it's better to book it in advance.

I dressed warm and did it in November, still a fantastic experience!
