During the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be operating our Traditional Shared Punting Tours.
In order to adhere to social distancing guidelines we have had to alter the way we operate and change the shared tour seating arrangements. So we have introduced a new tour, so customers can book a Private Section on a Shared Tour.
Perspex screens will be fitted on each boat separating different groups of customers where the minimum 2m distance is not possible.
If you would like to book a Private Boat Section for either up to 3 or 6 people, then please CLICK HERE. This option is more cost effective for smaller groups.
If you would like to know more about what safety measures we are putting in place please visit our COVID-19 Comeback page for more information.

A ticket for a seat on a chauffeured punt tour, which can be used at any time throughout the day – just turn up with your ticket and we will book you onto the next available punt.

Running frequently throughout the day, our shared punting tours allow you all the pleasure of our private tours, without having to hire a whole punt. Perfect for smaller groups or those who prefer the flexibility of being able to turn up at any time.

  • You can bring your own food or drink
  • Your tour will last approximately 50 minutes

    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.

  14. Michael Mangnall

    Jack was fantastic as our punter. He was really friendly and extremely knowledgeable. What an awesome experience it was. Despite it starting to rain slightly as we started before intensifying as we finished, it was fabulous. We leaned so much about Cambridge, the Universities and history. As a gondola ride is a must in Venice. A punt trip is a must in Cambridge.
