Group Punting Tours of Cambridge
The group punting experience is perfect for conferences, team rewards, work socials, and everything in between.
Rutherford’s punting tours and expertise have been awarded the Quality Rose Marque and offer a prestigious way to see the famous Cambridge river sights.
We are dedicated to ensuring that group bookings run smoothly and that everyone gets to enjoy the inspiring architecture and sublime College gardens. Travelling through this spectacular backdrop sets the scene for a memorable day.
Your guides will punt along the river on your private traditional punts, dressed with cushions and blankets with additional adapted lumbar supports for your comfort. They’ll entertain you with their expertise and knowledge of the College Backs.
With our group tours, your boats will be prepared and ready for you and your guests to arrive – there’s no queuing which is an important advantage in peak season.
Booking in advance will secure you the best prices!
Group Punting Tour Information
Our 50 minute private group tours are bookable in advance and will be waiting for your guests at your preferred time.
Please head directly to our Jesus Green Moorings just 2 minutes along the boardwalk from the Quayside to checkin for your tour.
Our private tours can be booked throughout the day with each boat holding a maximum of 12 passengers. For last minute bookings, please contact our Bookings Team on 01223 322200.
You’re very welcome to bring along picnics, nibbles and drinks on our private punting tours. Both our boats and our employees will be dressed for the weather on the day. If it’s sunny your guide will be wearing a waistcoat or a shirt with braces. Alternatively, at colder times of the year, your guide will wear a professional coat and your tour will include umbrellas and hot water bottles.
What to do if your event is running late? Your private booking will be held for your group for 15 minutes, after this point it wouldn’t be possible to go on the tours as this would mean missing our later bookings. Please call us the moment you know of any delays to your schedule and we’ll try to organise things to accommodate you.
