Rob is highly knowledgeable and entertaining. Even gave us a full hour’s tour rather than the advertised 45 minutes. He tailored it to the people in the boat (after we introduced ourselves). The sun was out and we had a lovely experience. Highly recommend it.

Theo from the Cambridge Punt Company gave us a jolly good punt in the sunshine, showing us all the bridges and colleges along the 45 minute tour. Would 10/10 recommend to a friend. Also one of the cheapest offers on the riverside.

Our guide Robert filled our relaxing cruise down the river with lots of information about Cambridge and my wife and I appreciated all the insights! A must do if you’re in Cambridge for a day break

Pretty much! Personally I would avoid Scudamore as they are the most expensive with the most ‘scripted’ tour whereas the other companies you can get better deals and they adapt the tour to suit the crowd. Highly recommend... More
