Chauffeured Punting Tour in Cambridge
From US$14.14
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
The River Cam winds by the rear of some of Cambridge’s university colleges, revealing perspectives that visitors sometimes miss. This chauffeured, shared punting trip takes you past key landmarks like the Bridge of Sighs and King’s College Chapel, and provides running live narration as you relax and enjoy the scenery. Plus, by booking the trip in advance, you're likely to save money on the on-the-day ticket price.
What to Expect
Travel independently to the River Cam departure quay at a time that suits you during the operational hours. With your pre-booked ticket, join the next available tour, settling onto your shared, chauffeured wooden punt. If it’s cold, you'll be given a cozy blanket to keep you warm.
Your chauffeur steers your boat past seven of Cambridge’s famous college 'backs,' including St. John’s, Trinity, Trinity Hall, Clare, and King's and Queens'. Admire the scenery and take photos of sights like King’s College Chapel, the Bridge of Sighs, the Wren Library, New Court St. John’s, and the Mathematical, Clare, and Magdalen bridges.
As you cruise, the chauffeur charts the university’s history from the 13th century, and points out the buildings’ most notable architectural features as you pass.
After the allotted time, your trip ends when you disembark at the departure quay.

Great punt. Kellan was a great tour guide. Five stars. Promote him from captain to admiral. Good personality and at least 90% of facts were probably true.

I was enchanted by the beauty of Cambridge and what better way to experience the atmosphere of the city but on a punting tour. Our guide was just fabulous, very informative and witty, very personable. Would thoroughly recommend the tour to all.

My daughter and I went punting with Hugo. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Scenery fantastic. Hugo made the trip very interesting - we loved the history of the colleges. Definitely a must do in Cambridge.
