The punting experience was awesome. And the information shared by Rob was excellent. Made an awesome experience and the best part of visiting Cambridge. The way Rob communicated with each of us in the boat was very appreciative.

First time punting and had a great time on the river. Looked after by Jake who was funny and knowledgeable. Best price of all the punting companies that approached us and a must if you are visiting Cambridge.

Wonderful Punt along the river. Jake was an exceptional tour guide. The price was the best we had been offered and the cheap price did not reflect upon the service and tour. Thank you!

Hugely enjoyable trip for 3 generations of the family. We soon realised we were in safe hands with Rob, who was a complete professional. He made our trip informative and fun for all of us.

We paid for a shared punt with Cambridge punt company and it was fantastic! It was the cheapest of all the punt companies by far ( especially if you book online) and by the laughs coming out of our boat, the best. Rob the punter...More
