Choose our shared punting tours of Cambridge to see the world-famous College Backs.
On our VisitEngland accredited tour you’ll be entertained with Cambridge’s fascinating history and see the sublime buildings, bridges and gardens that are only visible from the river.
Your expert chauffeur will take you along the river on a classic shared punt, dressed with cushions and blankets with adapted lumbar supports for comfort.
If you’re looking to experience this unique side of Cambridge for less, our shared tour is the best option for those on a budget. For the best savings, book online before you head to the river. These punting prices beat anything that you’ll find on the day.
Book the appropriate tickets online ahead of your visit – Babies travel for free (aged 0-3), Child tickets can be purchased for those between 4 and 16 years and Adult tickets are for everyone else. Check our Concessions information as these tickets are available for over 60s, students and more!
You don’t need to book a time or day. Our 50 minute shared punting tours can be joined on a walk-up basis. Simply show your shared ticket to our team on the Quayside and you’ll be seated on the next available tour from our Jesus Green Moorings.
We recommend booking in with our team on the Quayside 2 hours ahead of when you would like to take the tour during peak season (May to September) to ensure that you experience a tour at a time that suits you best.
On summer days, tours leave every 15 minutes and in quieter times there may be up to 45 minutes between tours. Wait times may be up to 2 hours at peak time, between 12pm and 4pm on busy days.
Our shared tour tickets are designed to be flexible and can be used at any point, on any day during opening hours, within 6 months of the date of purchase. Your ticket can only be used once.
Our shared tours depart regularly throughout the day with each boat holding a maximum of 12 customers. There’s no need to let us know which date and time that you will be arriving in advance, these tickets are 100% designed to fit around your trip to the city.
When you’re ready to come punting, head to our Quayside Bookings Desk, show our team your ticket (either on your phone or a print out) and we’ll reserve your seats on the next available tour.
