Highlights
    What to Expect
    With a collective 20 years of experience Rutherfords have the knowledge and expertise to offer the very best 45 minute river tours of the river cam and its surrounding architecture.

    We begin our trip from Jesus Green Moorings, Cambridge. Your journey will take you a mile down the river to Darwin College along which you will have the pleasure of cutting through the private grounds of the colleges seeing the sublime College Backs. Enjoy unique views of the most famous Cambridge sights including Magdalene College, the Bridge of Sighs, St John's College, The Wren Library, Trinity College, Kings College Chapel, the Mathematical Bridge and Queens' College. Your guide will then take you back to the La Mimosa Punting Station for the end of the tour.

    You will be accompanied by a professional chauffeur who will punt you down the river, and also give you a Visit England Quality Assured Tour narrative, telling you some of the spectacular stories Cambridge has to offer, bringing the history of Cambridge  to life.

    On our shared tours you will share the punt with others, and your seats will be allocated on a first arrival basis. Our boats are equipped with blankets, umbrellas and seasonally with hot water bottles.

    Our best ever punting trip on the Cam, hosted by the wonderful Pip. Kind, personable and full of marvellous trinkets of facts, Pip took us on a charmingly idle drift under the willows, along the tranquil Backs and beneath the dreaming bridges. The younger children...More

    Excellent, relaxing way to see the back of Cambridge. Matt was the real deal of punters- knowledgeable and entertaining and expertly avoiding the lost and misguided. Would recommend Rutherford's to anyone visiting.

    Lovely outing on the river with family. Booking online was very straightforward, and on arrival at the quayside we were directed to the boat very efficiently. It was a busy sunny day with lots of boats on the water but still a great atmosphere and...More
