Great tour with a fabulous tour guide! - I Was recommended by a friend to request Phoebe at Cambridge punting as she said she was an amazing guide. She didn’t disappoint. This young lady is full of knowledge. We were amazed at things she knew. This wasn’t my first punt in Cambridge & she told us so much more! Helpful & polite. Would recommend Phoebe to anyone👍🏻

Private family punting tour - First family trip to Cambridge. We started with the private punting tour. Perfect way to start the day, relaxing and enjoyable. All staff were very helpful. Our guide Harry was really knowledgeable, polite and friendly. Great views of the university and we really enjoyed hearing stories about student life and the history of the uni. Very comfortable and blankets were provided.

Joe is simply the best - My girlfriends and I booked a private punting tour and we were lucky enough to get Joe. He was so engaging, knowledgable and so fun. He let me punt and we were all laughing our heads off because it was hilarious. He is so lovely and deserves every promotion and pay raise.

Great first time punting - Lovely spontaneous private punting tour with my partner. Dylan was very knowledgeable and a pleasant down-to-earth guide. His love for his home town of Cambridge and punting for 19 years made us feel special. Great experience and highly recommend!
