Really enjoyed our punting trip through the old buildings of Canterbury on the Stour. Pleasant to hear the history of the areas you were seeing and a nice idea when visiting. My only gripe would be that my partner,daughter and I were put in a half of the boat with another couple, this left us very cramped and slightly awkward when trying to move and unfortunately my daughter couldn't take the photographs she had hoped for without strangers faces also being snapped in them. We still enjoyed the trip but would have valued having a little more space,we weren’t informed that we would be sharing a half or offered any alternate options when purchasing the tickets from the coffee shop. The coffee shop was very pleasant before boarding, selling great coffee with pleasant staff. Thank you.

Great company - I used to work for them part time in Canterbury and I enjoyed every minute of it! Friendly and caring staff, it's a great activity to do outdoors especially as a Valentine's gift or birthday/hen party to start the evening with.

The trip starts at the cafe which is lovely and serves good coffee. Then on to the punt, which has cushions, blankets and even hot water bottles which were needed on a very cold December day. Seb was our host who was very friendly and very informative. He added humour and was able to steer the punt through some very small tunnels. This trip allows you to see parts of Canterbury that you couldn’t unless you were on the river. Excellent value for money too. We definitely recommend this trip to all ages.

What a lovely way to spend a morning. Friendly welcome, at the café, then into the punt with the obligatory safety advice. Very knowledgeable staff, gave us a great commentory on the trip. It was a cold day, made really comfortable with the hot water bottles and blankets. Would recommend this to all.
