Your Authentic Cambridge Punting Experience
Your 45 minute journey will take your along the backs of the River Cam where we will share the history, legends, and eccentricities of Cambridge University. You will see seven of the colleges, nine of the bridges, and all of the most iconic views our city has to offer. At Cambridge Punters we strive to offer both a great a service and to maintain the tradition of punting. Your friendly, local guide will be one of the most experienced wits, raconteurs, and boatmen on the river. Versed in the arts of history, punting, and tall tales!
Affordability without the compromise!
Our shared punting tour includes all of the same sights, stories, and escapades as our private tour, only you share the boat with other intrepid explorers of Cambridge.
Spacious, luxurious, and fully customisable. Our private punting trip is just you, your chauffeur, and whoever you decide to invite. Best enjoyed with a glass of something cold and a picnic, this 45 minute trip will let you see Cambridge on your own terms.
