Attraction Information

Let’s Go Punting is a small, independent Punting company, specialising in private and shared Chauffeured River Tours of Cambridge. Punting is ‘the ideal way’ to see the riverside colleges in comfort & style. Our 50-minute return tours cover the length of the college backs between Magdalene College and Silver Street Bridge.

We are proud to have over 2,000 5-star reviews on Google and are Travellers choice winners on Trip Advisor. We are passionate about providing outstanding guided tours along the majestic college backs in Cambridge.

With a new fleet of punts built in-house hitting the river in 2023, we can now boast generously sized raised seating, refreshment tables and a supper smooth glide along the river Cam.

We offer themed activity booklets for the kids; currently, we have Easter, Halloween and Christmas available. These are an excellent way to help younger children engage with the punting tour and include a city centre scavenger hunt for after your tour. If you complete the activity section and crack the code then you can head to hardys sweet shop for your sweet treat.

Other Info

There is no age limit as punting is a very safe activity. That being said we usually advise parents/carers with young children to position the children in the middle of the punts and make sure they are not putting their hands on or over the edge of the punt. The punts are very stable and will not tip over.
