Romantic Evening Punt Tour

What is the Romantic Evening Punting tour?

The romantic tour is a private punting tour. It’s just for the two of you, so there’s plenty of space to spread out, or snuggle up! Having Scholars Punting Cambridge host a traditional punt for two through the heart of the historic city is an extra special and original way to surprise your date.

You can take the tour as part of your day out or, if you want it to be extra romantic, during the early evening when the sun is setting and the river is at its most peaceful.

Sit back and relax whilst your experienced punt chauffeur guides you past the historic Cambridge University riverside buildings. Your chauffeur will be happy to give you a historic tour or stay out of sight whilst the two of you whisper sweet nothings.


Tours depart after 6 pm because we think that the river is better at that time. See this blog on evening punting.


The tour is priced at £150, however, there is a £70 discount after 6pm. If you plan to punt before 6pm, then it may be cheaper to order a private tour. Please click this link to check the latest private tour price.
