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 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!

*Coronavirus 2020: Your guide will be wearing PPE as per the latest guidelines. Tours are temporarily without blankets so that our boats and cushions can be fully cleaned in between each tour. If you need extra precautions on your tour as an at risk member of society, please get in touch on
