    Fantastic experience and a great way to see the city. Tom R was an excellent guide and had a great knowledge of excessive banana consumption leading to hyperkalaemia…!

  5. naeema munshi

    Brilliant punting experience. The company was very organised and allocated us a specific time, as it was an extremely busy day. Shoutout to Alex, our punter, who made our tour very entertaining !

  6. Anna Gros

    A fantastic experience. The chap that took us punting had so much knowledge about the universities and colleges and explained things in great detail. The tour was pleasant the right length of time with children on board.

    There was no waiting around, we were put on quite quickly after checking in as I had booked online. I would definitely recommend punting to my friends .

    Thank you for a pleasant experience.

    Took visiting family for a punting trip, and I can safely say it was the best one I’ve ever had! Credit to Max, he was hilarious. Get him if you can!

  13. Meet Panchal

    Great punting tour! We got to see many great sights from the Cam River, including the Wren Library, King’s College, as well as the spectacular St. John’s College New Court. Our tour guide, Zac, was great: he informed us about the history associated with the buildings that we were seeing, and he told great jokes along the way. Zac was well-informed and enthusiastic, which made the punting tour all the better. While I don’t know how Traditional Punting Co. compares with other tour companies on the river, I would, however, recommend punting with this company if you don’t know which company to go with!

  14. Janet Sutherland

    We had a great chauffeured punting tour with our guide, Manos. It was a drizzly morning and he took the time to cover the seats with blankets and supply umbrellas before taking us on an entertaining journey along the river Cam. Great views of various colleges and bridges. 😊

    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.

  29. Jacquie Smith

    Had a fab time. Easy to book.

  31. Amanda

    Great company, brilliant service. Would recommend to anyone wishing to go punting. Lovely people working for the company. Wouldn’t go anywhere else

  32. Louise

    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!!)

  33. Tina

    We booked online for something to do whilst visiting Cambridge and we were not disappointed. Great tour and brilliant customer service throughout.

  34. Tom

    Really knowledgeable guide. A must do in Cambridge!
