What Can I Expect

Let's go punting in Cambridge! These chauffeured Cambridge punting tours offer a blissful couple of hours out on the River Cam discovering the delights of this famous scholarly town from the water.

As punting deals go, we really like these tours in Cambridge. You can choose between a romantic evening outing for two, or get a small group of up to 12 of you together for a punt as an exclusive group tour of the Cam. What's more, it's 'bring your own', so you've got the flexibility to bring whatever tipple and food you fancy!

The punts used in Cambridge are your classic flat-bottomed gondola-style, all hand-built using quality woods. Your chauffeur will be standing on what's called the deck at the rear of the boat, using their quant (that's the proper punting word for the pole!) to propel you gently along the river.

Known as 'The Backs', this is one of the most famous places in the whole of the UK for punting. On these central tours you'll float past many of the famous colleges of Cambridge as the River Cam winds through the very heart of town. From the 14th Century Clare College, to the 16th Century Trinity College with its famous Hall, you'll see the very best bits of Cambridge from your punt.

A highlight for many when punting on the Cam is the moment you glide gracefully under a the stunning Bridge of Sighs (so named after a comment made by a very appreciative Queen Victoria) and teak wood of Mathematical Bridge, which is pretty as a picture too.

Whether you go as a group in the daytime to sightsee the , or book a punting trip just for the two of you as the daytime crowds disperse and calm befalls the waters, these punting tours are a great way to see Cambridge. The punts are equipped with umbrellas and if it starts to get a bit chilly as the sun sets, snuggle up in a cosy blanket.

Sounds idyllic doesn't it? Buy a voucher to go punting in Cambridge and you'll have exclusive use of the boat. With your chauffeur to take you on your River Cam tour, you can simply sit back and relax with glass in hand, whilst they punt!
