Shared Punting Tour

Our Shared Punting Tour is the perfect way to experience the beautiful sights along The Backs, at a fraction of the price of one of our exclusive and ever popular Private Tours. Relax whilst you are Chauffeured by one of our fabulous and knowledgeable tour guides, and share the experience with fellow explorers.

For bigger groups, a Private Punting Tour may make more sense as you can take the whole boat and not share it with other members of the general public. See our Private Punting Tour Page. Boat capacity is a max of 12.

Allow your punting guide to show you the wonder of The Backs, the mile stretch of river we take you on hasn’t changed, nor has the quality of our guides and the commentary, just the way you are spaced in the boat. 1m apart from other groups or separated by a perspex screen, we have taken measures to ensure we comply with guidelines. Hand sanitiser and masks available.

Private Tour

Our speciality at The Cambridge Punt Company remains the traditional Private Punting Tour. (Tour duration 45-50 mins).

It used to be that every punt tour in Cambridge was conducted privately for one group of customers at a time. The explosive popularity of Cambridge as a tourist destination has resulted in shared tours, that is larger punts carrying several groups of different customers on the same punting tour.

Join us today, for your very own private piece of Cambridge!

Relaxing, informative and amusing

" Had an enjoyable tour of Cambridge with my patenter. We shared with a family of 5 but we got half the boat to ourselves which was nice. It was especially enjoyable as the sun was out. Would definitely recommend if you are unfamiliar with Cambridge "
