On the day, at your pre-selected time, meet your guide in the center of Cambridge. Together you walk down to the river to embark upon your punting tour. If required, your guide can offer a punting lesson. Otherwise, push off and begin traveling along the river. Along the way, see eight of Cambridge's best-known colleges, including Magdalene College and Darwin College. See the Mathematical Bridge and the beautifully structured Bridge of Sighs, named after Venice’s famed covered bridge. While punting, your guide dives deep into the history of Cambridge and offers insider insight for how to enjoy the rest of your stay. Your tour concludes back in the city, where it began.
