Enjoy a delightful traditional punting tour with Rutherford's Punting Cambridge. See the city from another perspective and laugh all the way as you listen to the funny tales and curious historical facts your chauffeur has to share. Any questions you or your kids have, your friendly punter will be happy to answer.

Punting is the Cambridge version of a Venetian gondola ride - you’ll never truly know the charm of the city, if you haven’t tried it. Sail under legendary bridges, including the Bridge of Sighs and Mathematical Bridge, and see the private buildings and gardens of the College Backs. Even if you live in Cambridge, you’ll still learn things about your city you never knew.

A tour is as good as its guide! Rutherford's Punting Cambridge pride themselves on hiring only experienced chauffeurs, who know well how to maneuver the tight channels in the city. And most importantly, who know how to entertain a group, no matter the age! You and your kids will end your punting tour happy, relaxed and with a little bit more knowledgeable.
