We took a tour on a Monday afternoon in autumn and had Patrick as our guide. He was great!! He was a wealth of knowledge, telling tons of anecdotes and interesting facts. He answered all our questions and made us laugh. We cruised easily through the river without bumping into anyone or anything. He was an expert punter! I would highly recommend this company, but also would recommend Patrick specifically! 👍

The price is a bit steep, even after a little negotiating but in spite of this we had a lovely time. We went on a shared punt of 4 rows of seats, we used one row - 2 adults and 2 children (10 & under) which was comfortable for us. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour worthwhile, I think you would lose a lot without this. We could sit back, relax, enjoy the scenery and architecture along with the history. 45 minutes was perfect timing... Just about when the youngest had had enough.

Scenery is stunning but boat experience and service was poor. Put aside the charming and well cultured Cambridge students, the boat was extremely hard to manoeuvre and staff on other boats were making fun and unwilling to help. We needed special assistance to get on and off but didn’t get it. Diabolical!. Add to that the crazy price of £270 for a guided boat or £50 for 90 mins of self pilot and it’s not worthwhile. Try canoeing or paddle boating elsewhere. You’ve been forewarned!

A big price but they give you a massive reduction (part of the act to lure tourists, I'm sure). Very beautiful boat trip along Cambridge waterside. Friendly punter who knew his stuff and gave plenty of explanation. With the 'reduction' it's worthwhile though.

It was a wonderful experience to go on punting in Cambridge. Our rider Eton was very good at explaining and describing places. It was 45 minutes boat ride.Worth for the price
