Review of Go Punting Cambridge - CLOSED

Attraction details
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!

“If you want a more personal punting experience....”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We visited Cambridge on the 29th of June for a family day out (4 adults), I wanted to go punting but wanted a private punt and didn't want to pay the high prices of the larger punting companies. Through Tripadvisor I discovered Go Punting and couldn't have picked a better comapny to use. From my initial contact with Sirous through to the punting itself, the service was excellent. We had a 5 seater standard punt which provided enough room for the 4 of us. Having a long standing resident of Cambridge guiding us down the Camb was lovely as you an informative trip without the scripted service we heard coming from many of the other punts. Our trip lasted just longer than an hour and we never felt rushed during the whole experience. We took wine and a small picnic which was ideal and enjoyed watching first time punters as much as some of the sites we took in. All in all, this is an excellent service, that I would recommend to anyone visting Cambridge for the day. Thank you Sirous for a lovely trip, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

A fabulous experience on the river Cam: as peaceful and relaxing moment as informative with a skillful and well cultured guide. Beautiful scenery, highly recommended to discover Cambridge from a different perspective...

“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!

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!
