Attraction Information

Punting in Cambridge is the ultimate way to enjoy the sights, with the River Cam passing through the very heart of Cambridge’s University campus affording unique views of the most famous Colleges.

The tours begin opposite the beautiful Magdalene College Gardens and commence up through St John’s College, Trinity College and much more. As you sail down the river your local guide will tell you all about the history of the places you pass, with loads of interesting facts. They will also answer any questions you have too so fire away!

The company can provide refreshments, picnics and even balloons if it’s someone's birthday! If you want to add an extra special twist to the day you can get the in-house magician aboard to dazzle the family as you pass through the wonders of Cambridge.

Reviews

Cheapest around and it shows 1 out of 5 stars

Avoid, go elsewhere, pay a bit more and get better value for money. Tour is 45 mins not 1 hour as advertised. Staff lackluster, confirmation email never arrived so spent ages proving we’d paid by showing our PayPal confirmation. Staff unaccomodating and lacking any customer service skills. Bottom of the barrel, last resort, avoid, avoid, avoid.
