The tour is not very professional. The money is not worth. Also misleading to put 9am on the confirmation, in fact, it is not the time for boarding but their opening hour.

This was probably our 4th punting tour, we tend to take family when visiting. This was out first time with Scudamore's. The team was friendly and accommodating. The trip went well but our personal guide was not super informative and spoke very quietly so it was hard to hear him.
