Had a great experience here over the Bank Holiday weekend, far more than I expected.

We had a nice ride down, the boat was very clean and not wet which was great!

The guide was really excellent and knew alot of about the area and answered all of our questions and beyond. He wad funny and made the experience unforgettable.

Highly recommend.

Shoutout to Henry, our amazing punter! Ask for him.

We paid £20 per head. Definitely negotiate 😉

Had a great experience today, we didn’t catch the name of the man who was our guide but he mentioned he hadn’t been doing these tours for the last six years and today was his first one - we thought he was absolutely excellent and so friendly! Such brilliant views and at such an affordable price. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see the cities scenery and hear about the history! Will definitely be coming again :).

Fantastic guide. Very interesting with a good sense of humour. Lots of facts for adults and children alike.

We were running late from an appointment at Addenbrookes. We called to let them know, our booking was move to work for us, no problem! Very accommodating.

Would 100% recommend.

The trip took around an hour.

Absolutely beautiful tour and the chauffeur was so informative. Very cool to see all the colleges and I liked that blankets were provided. Punting is a must do activity in Cambridge.

Great informative tour. It allows you to spot 8 of the colleges and landmarks including famous bridges, and teaches you interesting history.
The boat was super comfortable and the guide, Joe, was very knowledgeable despite his young age!
Highly recommend for people who want an easy welcome to Cambridge and the landmarks.

My wife and I took a day trip to Cambridge from London and this was by far the highlight of our trip.
First, they are the best deal you can get on getting a punting tour.
Second, the website is hilarious.
Third, the employees were great.
Fourth, it was an AMAZING punting ride.
The day before we had booked a 12pm time slot but we got to Cambridge early and when we arrived we met Dani and told her we would be happy to take an earlier slot. Dani, being the Rockstar that she is, was more then accommodating and happily got us on the earlier punt. FYI - You might notice that Dani isn't listed on the website. It's an oversight I am sure they will fix:-)
There were two women who we were joining on this trip and one of them had some mobility issues but Dani and James (our punter) made it very easy and safe for everyone to get on.
Once we got underway it could not have been a smoother sailing. James kept us entertained with stories and history, always open to questions, and kept us moving at a relaxed and enjoyable pace. The weather cooperated and we had a beautiful day and the river wasn't very busy at all so our trip on the water was truly wonderful. Thank you Dani, James, and Cambridge Punters!

A very nice punting activity. Was very pleased. When you reach the area, there are many people from different companies who charge a lot higher. They gave me a quote and i walked on towards the other companies and found Cambridge punters. They offered me a very good rate. The reason for 2 stars is because they dont let you choose where you want to sit. We waited in the queue for over 25 minutes, only to be told to sit in a bad spot. We weren’t going to be unfair and sit in the middle where families with kids can sit, but just wanted a better view. Reviews and ratings depend on how you are treated and staff behaviour, which were all really poor.

Used Cambridge Punters during the week with my partner and my two daughters. It was a great experience.
Our 'punter'/guide Josh was brilliant with lots of fascinating facts and insight.
Highly recommend.
