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.

I was shocked how much Scudamore's was going to charge three people (one adult and two children) to go punting. They told us because we'd be taking a punt that could fit 12, it wasn't worth their while renting it to us unless we paid...More

Fantastic 1 hour journey in the River Cam. It passes through the iconic places in the city including mathematical bridge and bridge of sighs, and the famous colleges of Cambridge. The tour guides are knowledgeable and share lot of history about each of these places....More

When in Cambridge you must go punting on the River Cam. Scudamores was very accommodating...mindful of our tight schedule. Knowledgeable tour guide and punt “driver”. Beautiful scenery and so much history as we traveled the river on the back side of the historic Cambridge colleges.
