From: £30.00

During the COVID-19 pandemic the way we operate our shared tours has had to change due to the social distancing regulations set by the government. At the Traditional Punting Company the safety of our passengers has always been our top priority. Instead of purchasing an individual seat on a shared tour, we are now selling seats by the row. By altering the arrangements of the tour, our customers can enjoy the delight of a traditional Cambridge punting tour at a reduced price. 

Purchasing a row of seats means that your group will be sat together socially distanced from another group. There are two options available either: 3 seats (1 row) or 6 seats (2 rows). To maintain social distancing measures we have also fitted perspex screens to our punts, where required, to add further protection.
