Overview
The River Cam winds by the rear of some of Cambridge’s university colleges, revealing perspectives that visitors sometimes miss. This chauffeured, shared punting trip takes you past key landmarks like the Bridge of Sighs and King’s College Chapel, and provides running live narration as you relax and enjoy the scenery. Plus, by booking the trip in advance, you're likely to save money on the on-the-day ticket price.
Highlights
  • Book a Cambridge river punt trip in advance for less 
  • River Cam chauffeured punt past King’s College, Bridge of Sighs, and more 
  • Hear about the colleges’ history and architecture from a guide 
  • Enjoy views of the colleges and grounds often not covered by city walking tours
What to Expect
Travel independently to the River Cam departure quay at a time that suits you during the operational hours. With your pre-booked ticket, join the next available tour, settling onto your shared, chauffeured wooden punt. If it’s cold, you'll be given a cozy blanket to keep you warm. Your chauffeur steers your boat past seven of Cambridge’s famous college 'backs,' including St. John’s, Trinity, Trinity Hall, Clare, and King's and Queens'. Admire the scenery and take photos of sights like King’s College Chapel, the Bridge of Sighs, the Wren Library, New Court St. John’s, and the Mathematical, Clare, and Magdalen bridges. As you cruise, the chauffeur charts the university’s history from the 13th century, and points out the buildings’ most notable architectural features as you pass. After the allotted time, your trip ends when you disembark at the departure quay.

A lovely and amazing experience that allows you to see most of Cambridge's highlights without moving from your seat. Our "driver" Dane was hilarious and informative - shout out to Dane! Would recommend to anyone visiting Cambridge, as long as the weather is good.

We enjoyed a great tour of the river on this unique experience. Our chauffeur Rufus was very knowledge of the area and answered all our questions well, all whilst fighting against strong currents on the river. Thanks!

Let's go punting - Really enjoyed the trip with Rufus today. He had to fight a strong current but kept up the facts and dropped in a bit of humour too!

Arthur was a great guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. A chilly day but warm blankets provided, plus half the price of the competition!
