We have really enjoyed punting, it is the perfect way to explore the city and see all the main attractions. Our guide was very friendly and provided some really interesting facts throughout the tour. I would highly recommended it to anyone visiting Cambridge.

Absolutely recommend it to anyone; Lauren was very informative and very knowledgeable. Excellent for a day trip or weekend away. You get plenty for the money.

Extremely flexible service and we couldn’t have wished for a more knowledgable and interesting guide
