Private Punting Tours

Our Private Cambridge Punting tours are perfect for groups who prefer not to share. Bookings are available for 2, up to 6 or up to 12 in a boat. Multiple boats are available for larger groups who all want to be on the river at the same time.

COVID 19: At the current time please ensure bookings are comprised of one household/bubble.

Our private punting tours of Cambridge last for approximately 50 minutes. Sit back & relax as you glide along the College backs in Cambridge. Sights include the majestic Kings College Chapel, the Bridge of Sighs and The Wren Library.

Pricing

We use dynamic pricing meaning prices vary through the day, week and season. We are able to offer our best rates when the river is at its quietest – before 12pm and some evenings. Private tour prices start at only £79 for 2 or up to 6 and £89 for up to 12 for the tours before 12pm – an absolute bargain! 

When booking once you have selected your date the prices for all departures times will be on the screen. See pricing tables below for more information.

Private Punting in Cambridge & COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 we have had to make changes to how we operate Punting in Cambridge. More information about our Covid-19 safety measures can be found here. Our private punting tours are still available and can accommodate groups of multiple households (if government guidelines allow) as the rows of seats facing each other are more than one metre apart. Please let us know in the notes section if there are multiple households. Please note each row of 3 people should remain one household/bubble.

If the screens or masks on the boat impede you hearing the chauffeur in any way we also have a Free Audio Tour which can be downloaded and used during your tour. You are still welcome to bring food and drinks on board but we ask you to please take any rubbish with you and dispose of it safely.

A Few Changes

Due to social distancing guidelines and minimising cross contamination we have made the following temporary changes:

  • Life Jackets and Umbrellas are temporarily unavailable. You are very welcome to bring your own.
  • We are unable to allow any customers the opportunity to have a go at punting.
  • Our rugs covering the cushions have been replaced with a wipe clean material.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

  • Perspex screens on each boat separating different groups of customers and the chauffeur from the customers where the minimum 1m distance is not possible.
  • All staff to wear clear plastic visors whilst within 1m of customers where screens are not in place.
  • Boat sides and cushions cleaned between each tour.
  • Specific departure times booked in advance to assist social distancing meaning no queuing.
  • Tour available on an app with free download code (in the case that screens and masks make it difficult to hear the chauffeur).
