Chauffeured Punting Tour in Cambridge
USD 15.51
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.
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.

Excellent Experience

We used Lets Go Punting last Saturday 11th August whilst in Cambridge. We were in Cambridge for a special family occasion and had tried early in the afternoon to book something for that evening but the companies which approached us were really pushy and quoted...More

Just a lovely experience

The sales people where informative and helpful, without being pushy. The ride was smooth and relaxing with our skilled chauffeur Liam, who also provided a commentary with a great mix of humour and facts throughout the tour. Perfect.

We took a punt

.. and we're still puzzling over it. We really enjoyed the punting tour itself; seeing the colleges and being out on the River Cam. I would imagine mid-afternoon on a Saturday in August is about as busy as it gets but it was all good...More
