About
Punting in Cambridge during COVID-19 is now available by purchasing a private seating area for up to 3 or 6 people on a Shared Tour. Along a two mile stretch of the River Cam, customers will experience the most beautifully scenic route along the backs of seven Cambridge Colleges including the likes of St Johns, Kings and Queens to name but a few. At the Traditional Punting Company both the customers experience and saftey are their top priority, so measures have been implemented to ensure punting is COVID-19 safe. Boats will be sanitised before every tour, fitted perspex screens will maintian social distancing when the minimum distance of 1 metre is not kept and the virtual queue system will prevent crowds at the departure location. It is the best way to see Cambridge at a reduced price and without the queues.

Knowledgeable guide and a beautiful tour
Sep 2020 • Friends
My mother and I took a punting tour over the weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was knowledgeable on the colleges we passed, talking about the history of the buildings and bridges. Plus it was really beautiful. Having not spent that much time in Cambridge myself, it was a really fab experience. Would recommend.

Fun tour along the Cam
Sep 2020
Loved it so much! Lots of space on the boat with screens between each section. Our guide was really funny and friendly and told us lots of facts and myths about the different colleges in Cambridge. Went on an extremely windy day which made it more fun and the river wasn't busy at all with other boats, so don't feel this is something you can only do this during summer or when the weather is better. The tour lasts about 45-50minutes and you go to the meeting point by "Let's Go Punting" on the corner of Jesus Common (it's fairly obvious)
