First time punting and loved every minute! Such a great way to spend an afternoon finding out fun facts from ‘Adam’ our friendly, knowledgable guide. I was with my Canadian cousin and we both learnt a lot and laughed a lot too!! Well organised & managed on the water & a must do activity when you visit this beautiful part of Cambridge - Thanks

Beautiful places to visit. At each town, we had a walking tour of approximately 45 minutes and then we were given some free town to wander around - shop, tour, eat. The King's College Chapel tour was not included, but I highly recommend going in. It is stunning and worth the 11 Pound fee. It is a full day, but I highly recommend the tour!

This is an excellent way to see the sights of Cambridge especially if you are time poor. So much history and beautiful architecture in one place. A comfortable way to travel and our guide, Will was entertaining and knowledgeable.

Trip is well run and organized! Of course if weather is better, the whole trip will be very pleasant. We walked around the town and learned the history and main streets for sightseeing.

Sasha (our guide) and Laurence (our driver) were both superb. The kindest and most helpful.
