Private Punting Tours in Cambridge

What is a Private Punting Tour?

Private Cambridge Punting Tours are different from shared tours because you get the luxury of having the entire punt to yourself. The punts seat up to twelve passengers, if there are less of you then you will be able to spread out, or even move around the punt. You have the option of hearing the history of the colleges or not, on a shared tour the history would be mandatory. All private tours are booked for a specific time, this will enable you to avoid queuing during busy times like Saturday afternoons.
On a private tour you pay for the entire boat, this is more expensive for small groups, but can work out cheaper for larger groups. You can expect the same high quality boats, cushions and blankets as you would with any of our Tours.

What will I see on a private tour?

Whilst enjoying a private Cambridge punting tour, you will see the backs of the Cambridge University riverside colleges. Specifically, the colleges you see are Magdelene, St. Johns, Trinity, Trinity Hall, Clare, Kings, Queens and Darwin. To see a virtual tour please click this link.
