Private punting tours

Large punt seats up to 12 passengers

From the Kiosk £350 paying on the day

All private tours are booked for a specific time, this will enable you to avoid queuing during busy times like Saturday afternoons. On a private tour you pay for the entire boat, this is more expensive for small groups, but can work out cheaper for larger groups. You can expect the same high quality boats, cushions and blankets as you would with any of our Tours.

Beat the queues

Your boat(s) will be ready and waiting for you upon your arrival at the punt station and you'll set off as soon as all of your party are aboard. Each of the punts can seat up to 12 people (prices below). The price includes your chauffeur, ensuring you get the chance to really enjoy your trip along the river Cam.

If you've got specific requests then please let us know so that we can attempt to incorporate these into your 45-minute tour of the glorious Cambridge Backs.
