Itinerary

Depart from a central Cambridge location along the River Cam, at a time that suits your schedule. Board your vessel and glide along the river, admiring the quintessentially English scenery along the way. Listen as your accredited guide shares insights into the historical landmarks you pass, including King’s College Chapel, the Mathematical Bridge, and the Bridge of Sighs, and relax as you're chauffeured along your journey.

Orientate yourself in the historic city and enjoy the small group nature of the tour. Should the rain strike, enjoy an authentic English experience by wrapping up in a provided blanket and taking shelter under one of the punt’s umbrellas. At the end of your journey, return to the original point of departure, and continue your exploration of Cambridge with new insight into its history and culture.

Visited with elderly family member and most staff were helpful and made sure we had a punt with a seat and extra cushions so that he could also enjoy the trip. Beautiful scenery, safe trip!

Went to the information centre to get our tickets for punting as you can get a discount. Queue was very long so while we were waiting managed to book the tickets on line with the same discount, this saved us around 40mins to an hour...More
