Enjoy the picturesque River Cam by lying back in a punt (small boat) and letting a driver or “chauffeur” negotiate the meandering waterway while giving a commentary on the passing scenery.

This company runs punt business. They provide half an hour river tours, and self hire punts. You need to pre-book if you require a private tour. Their chauffeurs are perfect professionals and keep you entertained by narrating stories about river Cam, Cambridge colleges and various...More

The punt was handled with great skill by the guide, who also had vast knowledge of the buildings along the route. An enjoyable way to spend a summer afternoon.
