Founded in the early 1900s, we are Cambridge's oldest and friendliest punting company. We founded pleasure punting in Cambridge and have hired boats along the famous College Backs and on the scenic route towards Grantchester village for over 100 years. As the first company in Cambridge to offer chauffeured tours of the College Backs, our VisitEngland award-winning services include both our boat hire and our College Backs Tour. Discover how the city has evolved from medieval market town to world-class centre for education whilst enjoying spectacular views from the river - the ideal introduction to the city's inspiring history.

While not as important as getting inside some of the 31 colleges at this world-famous university, it is a very nice thing to do to rent yourself an hour on a punt that glides along the Cam (River) and provides a view of the "backs"...More

Had a lovely time on the Cam with Joshua, our guide. He was informative, funny & consequently made our hour on the river fly by. My only advice would be to avoid Saturdays as the river is full of hen & stag parties.

Enjoyed the beautiful views from the river of the colleges, the only way to see them. However, factually the tour had many incorrect facts which is so unnecessary....it doesn't take much to check out your information!

We had a great time on this tour! The girl in our boat was so nice and explaining history. The views were amazing and the boats are big and comfy with blankets to sit on and out over you.
