Overview
Punting in Cambridge during COVID-19 is now available by purchasing a private seating area for up to 3 or 6 people on a Shared Tour. Along a two mile stretch of the River Cam, customers will experience the most beautifully scenic route along the backs of seven Cambridge Colleges including the likes of St Johns, Kings and Queens to name but a few. At the Traditional Punting Company both the customers experience and saftey are their top priority, so measures have been implemented to ensure punting is COVID-19 safe. Boats will be sanitised before every tour, fitted perspex screens will maintian social distancing when the minimum distance of 1 metre is not kept and the virtual queue system will prevent crowds at the departure location. It is the best way to see Cambridge at a reduced price and without the queues.
