Attraction details
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!

“Go punting”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I took my mother in-law to visit my son who was living in Cambridge at the time. We were there in September, beautiful blue skies with comfortably warm weather. We went down to the punting docks by taxi and bought our tickets. She has difficulty walking, as she is 87 years old but she really wanted to do this. The staff was wonderful in helping her get into a boat. The tour was entertaining and informational. We went along the River Cam behind the various colleges, called "the Backs". Took some beautiful pictures. When we returned at the dock there was extra staff waiting at the dock to help her out of the boat. Everyone was so kind to her, I am so glad we did this. It is well worth your time.

Great way to see U of Cam! Our guide had funny stories as well as interesting facts up and down the river. They provided blankets and umbrellas (if needed).

“ok, good fun”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Take time to do this if visiting the city centre, you will get a different view of some of the best buildings and probably get wet as well. Great fun, but hard work unless you get a driver

“Family owned company, private punts”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We arrived in Cambridge on a very rainy day and at one time it seemed like the punting may not be able to go ahead. When Sirious learned that we had driven from London, he took us out anyway in a private punt (not like most of the big punts we passed with 10+ people).

The sun came out in the afternoon and the backs of the colleges were beautiful. This is definitely something to put on the top of anyone's to do list in Cambridge.

We chose Go Punting Cambridge because we wanted a more intimate experience without lots of other tourists and we were not disappointed.

Thanks Sirious!
