Punting with my family quaffing champagne is an absolute joy and it’s the best way to see the Colleges. Just loved it. If you aren’t confident at punting then you can get a Chauffeur at extra cost. A must do activity when visiting Cambridge

We enjoyed a very relaxing hour being “chauffeured” by Sam in our punt. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Cambridge and made the trip fun and interesting at the same time. The spare blanket was useful too! Thanks Sam.More
