  1. 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!

  2. Murtaza Shaikh

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

  3. 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

  4. Sue Hill

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

  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. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Josie Remzi

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

  10. Callum Pierce

    Thank you Traditional Punting Company for making our day in Cambridge so memorable. We opted for the private punting tour and it really was fantastic. The mooring was very easy to find from Google Maps, being a short walk from the town center. Our guide, Sam, was friendly, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. From start to finish, this company was highly professional and an absolute pleasure to do business with. I made a last minute booking through their website the night before our trip. I was able to pay by PayPal, and less than 12 hours later was on a punt on the River Cam – absolutely seamless. I look forward to taking my Mum out with them when I return next year. Thank you again.

  11. Kirsten Krause

    We did a punting tour with the Traditional Punting Company, that I had booked online on Monday the 17th of February. Our guide was Ben and he did a brilliant job, punting against the strong current and telling us lots of interesting stories. Very good experience! Thank you.

  16. Alison Gardner

    Great experience, very relaxing and our tour guide Torin was brilliant! He was very knowledgable and provided all the info we needed on the tour and more. He guided the punt professionally and we all learned a great deal about Cambridge. We booked a private punt at 10.30am and it was a perfect time as not too busy! Thanks Torin.
