We booked a private tour and had an excellent trip. Our punter, AJ, was very professional and friendly. His tour was informative and full of fantastic details about the sights. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our trip. It was excellent value for money and very well organised and delivered. Highly recommended.
Fabulous Private Tour
Fabulous Private Tour as a treat for our Australian friends visiting England as part of their world tour! Charles was absolutely brilliant – very informative and funny. We all really enjoyed it – thank you.
Fantastic experience. Our chauffeur Barnaby was well informed, friendly and professional and helped make the experience more enjoyable for all.
Thank you Traditional Punting Company for making our day in Cambridge so memorable. We opted for the private punting tour and it really was fantastic. The mooring was very easy to find from Google Maps, being a short walk from the town center. Our guide, Sam, was friendly, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. From start to finish, this company was highly professional and an absolute pleasure to do business with. I made a last minute booking through their website the night before our trip. I was able to pay by PayPal, and less than 12 hours later was on a punt on the River Cam – absolutely seamless. I look forward to taking my Mum out with them when I return next year. Thank you again.
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.
