The Cambridge Punt Company shared guided punting tours are approximately 45-50 mins long and take you along the 1 mile stretch of the River Cam that goes through the famous College Backs. You will see the river side colleges and their bridges, including the infamous Kings' College Chapel and The Wren Library at Trinity to name but two. Your guide will give you the history of what you see and some of their own well researched anecdotes.
Boats for shared tours leave throughout the day from 10am, approximately every 30 mins depending on levels of business. The tours begin from our desk on Quayside, where your guide will meet you and escort you to our boat station (1 minute walk from desk). You will see Magdalene, St. John's, Trinity, King's, Queen's, Clare and Trinity Hall colleges and their various bridges - the Mathematical and Bridge of Sighs the most well known two. The guide will give you key dates and historical facts about the buildings and bridges you pass and information on the colleges themselves, founders, and their illustrious alumni. One way tours can be requested with drop off options near Queen's College at Silver Street. Our guides can give you other assistance of Cambridge in general if required.
