Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: At Go Punting, we offer exclusive private river tours of the ‘College Backs’. Glide along and discover Cambridge’s extraordinary history from the comfort of a chauffeured punt. Rest assured, all of our tours are ‘private’- we will not add separate parties together to fill the punt. We feel this is the best way to unwind and take in the 7 colleges and 8 bridges that feature along the willow-fringed surroundings of the River Cam.So if you’re looking for a memorable get together ... Go Punting!

Simply the best, booked this for our 20th wedding anniversary, glad i read the reviews and found this gem. Unlike the other more commercial touts experienced on our way this is a lovely experience from the start when you go out via the private mooring in tranquil surroundings.
The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history en-route nothing was too much and you never felt rushed. We took strawberry's and pimms the only way to travel! best to go during the week as weekends is a free for all, would have no problems in recommending these guys, excellent communication from the first phone call, even giving us directions from the car park

I booked Go Punting for a private punt tour for our group of 4 after viewing lots of reviews on Trip Advisor for several different companies. I wanted a special tour since my cousin was visiting from abroad, as well as it being our 9-year old daughter's first time. The entire experience was brilliant - so much better than the larger companies out there (who were also annoyingly attacking us from all sides touting for business no matter where we were in the city - a big turn off!!).

Booking this tour is the best way to go: a designated time and meet-up spot, no queues, no hassle and a personalised service with a really friendly guide who knows his stuff. You start your tour at a quiet spot as well, far away from the crowds but only a short walk.

I would highly recommend Go Punting for a private and personalised tour and excellent value for money! 5 stars!!!

Found Go Punting on Trip Advisor and so pleased I contacted them rather than one of the bigger companies. A personal, fun and flexible service- plus it was excellent value for three of us on a private punt.

We visited Cambridge on the 29th of June for a family day out (4 adults), I wanted to go punting but wanted a private punt and didn't want to pay the high prices of the larger punting companies. Through Tripadvisor I discovered Go Punting and couldn't have picked a better comapny to use. From my initial contact with Sirous through to the punting itself, the service was excellent. We had a 5 seater standard punt which provided enough room for the 4 of us. Having a long standing resident of Cambridge guiding us down the Camb was lovely as you an informative trip without the scripted service we heard coming from many of the other punts. Our trip lasted just longer than an hour and we never felt rushed during the whole experience. We took wine and a small picnic which was ideal and enjoyed watching first time punters as much as some of the sites we took in. All in all, this is an excellent service, that I would recommend to anyone visting Cambridge for the day. Thank you Sirous for a lovely trip, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

A fabulous experience on the river Cam: as peaceful and relaxing moment as informative with a skillful and well cultured guide. Beautiful scenery, highly recommended to discover Cambridge from a different perspective...
