Excellent experience and friendly staff. We had a good time enjoying the punting tour! The view from the boat is worth the price.
Enjoyable experience

Got the deal on Viator. Our guide was Zach and he was good. Was there with friends and another group. He told some stories regarding the history of the colleges in Cambridge and the bridges. Enjoyable on a cold Saturday morning. Took lots of pictures.

Hugo was a very informative and humorous guide. He answered all our questions and it was obvious he enjoys doing what he does. Definitely recommend.
Punter was superb

It was a fine day, we were disappointed that we had to sit facing backwards as half of the seats where placed this way. However, we had a superb punter. Dane was so skillful and strong, made punting looked easy! He was cheerful throughout, fun, entertaining, interactive, and yet able to give the usual information of the buildings by the river and more. Many juicing details. We had a ball! Dane also added some of his adventures as a punter with nine years of experience and did it in the most amusing way. Thanks Dane for such a good experience!
Very good!

My teens like it very much. It was fun going putting. The guide talked less though. But we had fun watching other boats passing.
Punting Solo!

We booked for a group tour, but we were the only ones to show up. Matt gave us a fantastic boat tour with plenty of history and wonderful photo opportunities.
