Cambridge Punting

For locals and tourists alike, punting has been a quintessential part of Cambridge life since the early 1900s, and is now the top rated activity to do when visiting this historic city

The Traditional Punting Company is an enterprise by a pair of Cambridge locals, who revel in showing the best and most beautiful parts of the city from the most unique perspective – the River Cam.

Despite the increasing number of businesses set up in the area to provide punting services, we have found that we are favoured by customers, who know us for our clean and comfortable punts, our expertise in the local area, and our outstanding customer service.

We did a punting tour with the Traditional Punting Company, that I had booked online on Monday the 17th of February. Our guide was Ben and he did a brilliant job, punting against the strong current and telling us lots of interesting stories. Very good experience! Thank you.

Great experience, very relaxing and our tour guide Torin was brilliant! He was very knowledgable and provided all the info we needed on the tour and more. He guided the punt professionally and we all learned a great deal about Cambridge. We booked a private punt at 10.30am and it was a perfect time as not too busy! Thanks Torin.
