Overview
More
Founded in the early 1900s, we are Cambridge's oldest and friendliest punting company. We founded pleasure punting in Cambridge and have hired boats along the famous College Backs and on the scenic route towards Grantchester village for over 100 years. As the first company in Cambridge to offer chauffeured tours of the College Backs, our VisitEngland award-winning services include both our boat hire and our College Backs Tour. Discover how the city has evolved from medieval market town to world-class centre for education whilst enjoying spectacular views from the river - the ideal introduction to the city's inspiring history.

Having prepaid on line the queues were disorganized (paying on line saved money but not time). Told to queue in one place then another. Only one person on the counter (but they had plenty of staff to spare on the street annoyingly touting for business!)....More
