45 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

Scholars Punting Cambridge offer a shared punting tour of the Cambridge College backs. The duration is 45 minutes. We take the route only accessible by river, which makes it extra exciting. 

There are no bookable times for the shared tour, you arrive an check-in for the next available tour. The advantage of pre-booking is that you benefit from the cheaper online rate (in person it is £22.50 per person).

Due to COVID 19, the seating is now very spacious. You now pay for a minimum of three adult passengers to account for this.

Your Chauffeur is trained at driving so that he can guide you safely along the river. He will also give you a history tour, telling you interesting facts about the river and its surroundings.

All our punts are traditionally built using hardwood. They come with cushions and blankets for your comfort.

We also sell a range of private tours, as well as the shared tour sold here. Private tours are only available directly from our website.

Pete was very informative and made the experience very amusing as well as interesting. Good knowledge of the history. We wished it could have lasted a little longer and a glass of bubbly to set us on our way😉. Thank you.

A lovely , mellow experience.
Great guide and beautiful sights to be seen.
The only downside is that the public toilets by the river bank are not nice-just a heads up to go before you take your trip down to the river.
