Early Bird Discounts

Ideal for families and those looking to kickstart their day out in Cambridge with a chauffeured punt tour. We are offering our best rates for departures before midday.

We want our services to be affordable to all and have therefore developed a dynamic pricing model meaning we are able to offer the very best rates when the river is at its quietest – win-win!

Book a private or distanced shared tour to depart before midday to receive the best rates available that day.

Morning Punting

First of all, by choosing to join us on the river for a tour which departs before midday, you will experience the river in the very best way possible, when it’s at its quietest. It really is a lovely peaceful time to be on the water and as we are able to offer our very lowest rates you are also bagging yourself a bargain.

Simply book a private or shared chauffeured punting tour below (departing between 9.45 am and 11.45 am) and you will be looking at the best rate available for the day. We do charge a little more for our weekend tours but you will still find that our prices are extremely competitive compared to other Cambridge punting companies.

Fun for all the Family

Our Early Bird offer is perfect for families with young children who likely to be up and out early making the most of the day. Our chauffeured punting tours in Cambridge are the perfect activity for a family day out in Cambridge and chauffeured punt tours are safe for children of all ages.

Family Friendly Punting in Cambridge

At Let’s Go Punting, being parents with small children ourselves we love welcoming families and children on board.

We have life jackets available for children should you wish to request one but they are not required as chauffeured punting is an extremely safe activity.  We use large wide beam punts with a seating capacity of 12 passengers. These boats are very stable and will not tip over, therefore as long as your children remain seated with their hands and feet inside the punt they will be completely safe.

Children under 1 are classified as babes in arms and whilst not being included in the head count they are very welcome. Prams & Buggys can be left at our check-in (at your own risk).

Chauffeured Cambridge Punting Tours

Our Cambridge Punting tours cover the ‘College Backs’ and pass seven of the most famous riverside Colleges. Your chauffeur will provide an interesting and informative speech whilst you glide along the Cam. Tours are relaxing and informative at the same time and last approximately 50 minutes. The earlier you book the quieter the river is likely to be adding to your punting experience. Some of the sights you will see during your tour include the Bridge of Sighs, Kings College Chapel and The Wren Library. In addition, the river is a great place to spot wildlife including ducks, swans and herons. The ducks are often a highlight when children come punting with us! Don’t forget the duck food.
