  1. Josie Remzi

    Fantastic experience. Our chauffeur Barnaby was well informed, friendly and professional and helped make the experience more enjoyable for all.

  2. Deb Miller

    Fabulous Private Tour as a treat for our Australian friends visiting England as part of their world tour! Charles was absolutely brilliant – very informative and funny. We all really enjoyed it – thank you.

  3. Jooles McAvoy

    We booked a private boat for a party of 8 of us. We were lucky enough to have Josh as our guy. He was friendly, had good knowledge, patience, and a sense of humour. The starting point for this company is just a 100m stroll up the river, away from the hectic meeting point of most of the other punting companies. Perfect.

  4. Kate Burton

    Fantastic tour lead by Adam. He got to know our group very quickly and adapted his style to the right mix of humour and knowledge. Would 100% book again and tell all my friends!

  5. Abirbhab Banerjee

    It was a great experience with Traditional Punting Company. A memory to cherish forever. I have taken my spouse, kid and aged parents and everybody has found the experience so refreshing. The meet-up staffs, the guide – chauffeur was so fun loving guy. Loved the way he talked to me, explaining the history and answering my questions. I wish the experience would have a bit longer !! I will definitely visit again and will prefer this same company. Don’t want to ruin my sweet experience into a bitter one

  6. Sue Hill

    Fabulous trip – helped by the lovely Hugo who was fun and made our trip very enjoyable.

  7. Jim Wiggins

    Guide was informative with details of the history of the various colleges along the river. Under rainy conditions, they had ample umbrellas to help us keep dry, whilst the guide continued punting away in the rain

  8. Murtaza Shaikh

    A great tour by SamP and a great laugh with 8 work friends, great knowledge by Sam and very relaxing

  9. Alison James

    Had a private tour with the very knowledgeable and entertaining Manos. Really enjoyed it – worth every penny!

  10. Denise Durman

    Delightful hour even though the weather was not great. Young guy Zak was very informative and extremely cool when he lost his pole which made it even more memorable!

  11. Win D’cruz

    Great value for money. £100 cheeper than some of the others.

  12. Rebekah Chilvers

    Our group of 12 thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon of punting on the River Cam thanks to our tour guide Ben P who struck a great balance between being informative and entertaining. It was an incredibly enjoyable afternoon, even with the drizzle! I booked online ahead of time which was quick and easy, and staff were really helpful in answering any questions I had, and importantly on the day the location was also really easy to find. Would definitely recommend to a friend and hope to book through the Traditional Punting Company again in the future!

  13. Brian C

    We had a fantastic Private Punting Tour on our Christmas holidays. The whole party enjoyed themselves. We would definitely come back during the summer to experience another Traditional Punting Company chauffeured punt tour.
