    Punting in Cambridge With The Traditional Punting Company

    Punting Cambridge, two words which are synonymous for anyone looking for fun things to do in Cambridge and the surrounding areas. Started by locals in 2005, the Traditional Punting Company has been offering locals and tourists the best punting and tour services on the River Cam and around the city of Cambridge. Even though several other punting companies have set up shop in the area, ours continues to provide the best and most traditional services around the scenic University of Cambridge colleges and the surrounding countryside.

    Punting Cambridge & River Boat Tours

    Well, if you want to go punting in Cambridge, there is no better way to do it than taking guided tours with our experienced punting chauffeurs. Yes, you read that right. Our team of well trained and charming chauffeurs – most of whom are locals – know the city of Cambridge, its history, and the famous colleges of Cambridge like the back their hands. They will make sure that you not only get to see idyllic lawns and other architectural masterpieces on your trip, but they will also inform you about what you are seeing so that you can get to take a piece of history with you.


    Apart from our experienced chauffeurs, our Cambridge punting company also boasts a large fleet of wide beamed and luxurious punts. These big punts ensure that our customers can sit safely and comfortably as they enjoy their tour around the college buildings that make up our world-famous University of Cambridge. Our wide fleet of punts have also enabled us to guarantee our customers that trips run on a regular basis throughout the day.


    We also have the most comprehensive punting Cambridge tours in town. Our wide-beamed punts glide past the historic Trinity and St. John’s Colleges and five other famous University of Cambridge colleges. Our tour route also passes underneath eight arching bridges some of which are as old as the gothic university buildings you will see.  Apart from our scenic tours around the college backs, a punt tour into the English countryside can also be arranged. Our 1 pm and 3 pm Cambridge city walks have begun attracting hundreds of customers per week, who are delighted by our knowledge of the city and the little secrets they discover along the streets and alleyways of Cambridge. Book now to enjoy a Cambridge punting trip of lifetime on River Cam.
