No matter what your views on Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying that it’s nice to have something to look forward to and celebrate. Valentine’s in lockdown also means that there’s no pressure to organise something elaborate in advance or spend your evening shoulder to shoulder with a bunch of other couples eating a set menu in a restaurant.
As the day approaches, you’re probably wondering how you can show your loved one how much you care. You could always buy the classic flower and chocolate combo but you’d have to venture outside for that..
What if we told you that we have a unique gift idea which you don’t need to leave the house to get? Give the gift of a romantic private punting tour on the River Cam. Our Valentine’s Day gift voucher entitles you to a private punt tour for two passengers after 7pm for £50. You will not be able to use the voucher until the lockdown is lifted, making it an experience to look forward to this spring. Even better, there is no expiry date so you could even wait until the warmer summer evenings.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to surprise your loved one with a romantic private punting tour of the River Cam. The tour covers the same route as described on our virtual tour. It passes the Cambridge University riverside colleges, which are architectural marvels.
Scholars Punting Cambridge uses the highest quality punts, which are maintained to the highest standard. No other company can guarantee the traditional wooden punts with a superb finish, all year round.
Let us set the scene for you.. It’s spring and the flowers have just sprung, the river is littered with swans and their cygnets. You stop off at the Cambridge Wine Merchants for a chilled bottle of wine and a snack to bring along. Walk down the boardwalk, meet your chauffeur, board the punt and wrap up in the blankets. The sun is starting to set making for the perfect scene. Your chauffeur tells you all about the history of Cambridge, the colleges and the river. You’re slowly navigated back and end the tour at the perfect time to get dinner at Middletons Steakhouse & Grill or The Punter.
If you would like to customise your tour in any way, please contact us and let us know what you would like and we will try our best to accommodate. Private tours can be adjusted to suit your needs.
It’s worth mentioning that the valentine’s gift voucher isn’t exclusive to couples. Treat a friend and make your first meet up post lockdown a memorable one!
