Private Cambridge Punting Tour
The epitome of Cambridge and the city’s favourite pastime for entertainment is private punting tours on the river Cam!
On our private tours you’ll experience the legendary Cambridge backgrounds and discover the spectacular riverside Colleges, bridges and private gardens.
Our expert chauffeurs will ensure that your VisitEngland accredited tour is a unique experience for you and your guests. You’ll hear historical facts and the very best stories behind the creation of the city that we see today.
Your guide will punt you and your guests along the river on your private traditional punt, dressed with cushions and blankets with additional adapted lumbar supports for your comfort.
If you’re looking for a more personalised experience, our private tours are the choice for you. With a private tour, your boat will be prepared and ready for you and your guests to arrive – there’s no queuing (an important advantage in peak season).
Bring along your favourite treats, tasty nibbles and refreshing drinks for the ride!
Booking in advance will secure you the best prices!

Alternatively, at colder times of the year, your guide will wear a professional coat and your boat will be equipped with umbrellas and hot water bottles.
What to do if you’re running late? Your private booking will be held for you for 15 minutes, after this point it wouldn’t be possible to go on the tour as this would mean missing our later bookings.
