    Very easy booking process and competitive price compared to other punting company’s. The actual tour was very informative and our guide (who’s name I can’t remember sorry!) knew his stuff! Would definitely recommend.

    This is such a lovely experience. Our guide was Jem, he was very pleasant and informative. The only thing that was unpleasant was the touts along the riverside constantly asking you for business. This was too much.

    Such a nice experience. All the staff members were friendly and the guide was funny and had some interesting facts amd stories. If you are in Cambridge you definitely have to try this! Even if it is a bit cold you can just snuggle up under the blankets and still enjoy the ride.

    My friends and I had been planning a punting trip in cambridge for some time. We booked the shared tour option as it was cheaper for four of us than taking a private punt. The departure point was very convenient and easy to locate. The staff were welcoming and booked us onto the next available punt… couldn’t have been easier!
    I would do it again in a heart beat (maybe with a glass of bubbly in the summer!!)
