Punting in Cambridge

There is no better way to finish a food tour than to sit back and relax on a chauffeured punt on the river Cam. Drifting along the backs, you will pass the famous Cambridge colleges whilst listening to interesting stories and tales about the history of the city and the University. If you’re interested, you can book a punting trip online at the same time as your food tour ticket. Not planning to take part in a food tour? You still can book your punting tickets here.
