Sam, our guide, made the visit both entertaining and informative thanks to a great sense of humour mixed with a deep historical knowledge which kept our teenagers very interested. Sam's creative writing talent fuels the way he manages to make the beautiful scenery come to life. We highly recommend the tour!!

Excellent tour down the River, given by JACK, trip wouldn’t have been as enjoyable without him. Very comfortable and luckily to have great weather.

We’re glad you had a great time - sadly we do not employ anyone called Jack, but we have ordered one of our best guides to change his name to Jack by deed poll because the customer is always right.

Brilliant and relaxing experience with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic punter by the name of Sam. There are a few different companies operating on this stretch of river but have to say (judging by all the other boats that passed us in almost silence during our tour) that we had chosen wisely. From start to finish we were well informed and unlike other boats that had up to 8 people on them, we only had to share with one other couple. Don’t be put off, like we almost were, by the ‘no’ availability for pre booking online, just head down to the river bank and there’s plenty of operators selling time slots even on a Saturday morning as we discovered and the best choice for us were Cambridge Punters, great service with a smile!
