COVID-19 and Punting

At the Traditional Punting Company we want to assure our customers that every measure is being taken to maintain safety for all.

Purchasing this new shared punt tour means that you will be on the boat with other groups, however perspex screens will separate groups when the minimum distance of 1 metre has not been met.

Our staff members will be wearing face coverings when required and all surfaces on the punt will be cleaned in-between tours. On the day our customers will receive a text message 5 minutes before their departure time, meaning that groups can enjoy Jesus Green park until they receive a notification that their boat is ready for embarkation to aid social distancing.

A Very Enjoyable Experience

Rated 5 out of 5

A very enjoyable experience taking in the sites in a leisurely way on the river Cam. Kieran our guide and punt master was very entertaining and knowledgable. A very well run professional business all round, definitely recommend to anyone and would use The Traditional Punting Company again.
Thank you.

Excellent Punting Tour

Rated 5 out of 5

Excellent punting tour with a baby and young child. Felt perfectly safe the whole time. The boat is big enough to feel comfortable in your own area without disturbing people in the other section. Even though the boat was fairly big and there was quite a wind to compete with, Rufus was great at sharing stories so we could all hear.

Very Knowledgeable

Rated 5 out of 5

We really enjoyed our shared punting tour with Will. He was very knowledgeable about all the college buildings and had lots of funny stories to tell about the students. The river was beautiful, it was lovely to see all the colleges from the water. I would definitely recommend this tour.
