Punting Tour in Cambridge
From US$ 22.98
Cambridge is known for its historic attractions, but typical tours can take up a lot of time, especially for those on a brief visit. Discover the city by punt, passing landmarks such as King's College and the Mathematical Bridge. Learn about their history from your guide as you sail in a traditional, flat-bottomed boat. The tour’s convenient duration and regular departure schedule is ideal for those looking to tick off this authentic experience while saving time.
What to Expect

Depart from a central Cambridge location along the River Cam, at a time that suits your schedule. Board your vessel and glide along the river, admiring the quintessentially English scenery along the way. Listen as your accredited guide shares insights into the historical landmarks you pass, including King’s College Chapel, the Mathematical Bridge, and the Bridge of Sighs, and relax as you're chauffeured along your journey.

Orientate yourself in the historic city and enjoy the small group nature of the tour. Should the rain strike, enjoy an authentic English experience by wrapping up in a provided blanket and taking shelter under one of the punt’s umbrellas. At the end of your journey, return to the original point of departure, and continue your exploration of Cambridge with new insight into its history and culture.

A Must Do

We had an enjoyable time doing a self-guided tour with a few local friends. We would recommend this to anyone coming to Cambridge. Sightseeing is beautiful along the river.

Carefree Cambridge: Punting down the Ram

After touring the city center, stroll over for a punting tour. Your knowledgeable guide provides historical details while your group takes in the scenic sites. Tip: Don’t worry about missing a shot as you’ll have another chance on the return trip.

It’s about a 15-20 minute walk from the station. Head to the city center and in the main square, follow the signs towards the water. You’ll see the ticket booth and they’ll help you to board.

The tour was booked in advance but not by myself as I was with a big group so I can't really help you. Sorry
