I went to do punting on 29th of May around 10am, with 4 more girls, and a guys that works there between 25-35 was trying to flirt with me all the time, and looking to us in a disgusting way, my experience on punting was horrible, if you are girl don't go by yourself, or try to avoid this company

Highlight of our stay in Cambridge and an absolute 'must do'. No way can you appreciate the magnificence of the college buildings without a view from the river. Booking on line was simple and the cost is much more reasonable than that of other companies.
Our tour guide was Jake, who was lovely and personable and happy to answer our questions.

Private punting tour in between rain
Apr 2021 • Family
We had a lovely private tour with Peter on a rainy May evening, but we fortunate as it had stopped raining 10 minutes before we got in the punt, and then started again 15 minutes after we got off :) Perfect time of the day to enjoy the river and the views as no longer busy. We live in Cambridge but still learned a few things from Peter. All in all, a great experience at an excellent price for a private punt - thank you!

We had the pleasure of having Ben as our punter today. His experience, enthusiasm, skills were superb, but his knowledge and story telling skills really made it worth our while and brightened our day.
Thank you Ben,
