As one of the best loved punting companies in Cambridge, we pride ourselves on our ability to create memorable experiences for our customers. Whether you’re a student seeking a local trip out with friends, a local who wants to see the city from a new perspective, or a tourist who wants to make lasting memories of one of the best cities in the world, we’re here to help. Our chauffeured tours allow our customers to relax and soak up the views, while we do all the hard work and guide you through beautiful scenery in the historic heart of Cambridge.
We pride ourselves on providing an authentically traditional service in Cambridge, using experienced chauffeurs and the most luxurious fleet of wide-beamed mahogany punts. As the most comprehensive small tour operator on the River Cam, we offer a wide range of services to suit your needs. History enthusiasts will enjoy seeing the colleges situated along the river, linked by famous bridges such as the Mathematical Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs. Fans of Pink Floyd and Sylvia Plath may prefer the ride past the idyllic Granchester Meadows, the beautiful natural grassland which inspired their works. Or if you simply want to spend an afternoon relaxing on the river, there is no better way than in one of our traditional punts.
For locals and tourists alike, punting has been a quintessential part of Cambridge life since the fun and idyllic pastime began in the early 1900s. The Traditional Punting Company was begun by locals who wanted to show the best and most beautiful parts of Cambridge from the most unique perspective – the River Cam. Despite the increasing number of businesses set up in the area to provide punting services, we have found that we are still favoured by many visitors, who know us for our clean and comfortable punts, our expertise in the local area, and by our outstanding customer service.
