  • Very good service, really nice guy who took us on the day, would certainly recommend both Viator and Lets Go Punting

  • Excellent. Highly recommend.

  • An excellent punting tour. Only problem for us was that we had torrential rain half way through. Can't blame the tour for that!

  • Very picturesque and relaxing. The guide told us about social activities and escapades of the students and that the least illustrious student EVER to attend Cambridge was Prince Charles who still holds the record for the lowest entrance score. We passed the magnificent Kings College Chapel and he mentioned that the stained-glass windows are valued in excess of a billion GBP and were removed during WWII....lots of other interesting facts/trivia. It was thoroughly enjoyable and quite idyllic.

  • This tour is well worth the money and a great way to see some sights. Also, really enjoyed our chauffeur, Will, who has very informative and even more entertaining. The punting tour is a must do in my opinion.

  • Really good fun with a knowledgeable guide who could punt so much better than any of us in the party!!

  • This was an excellent end to a hectic weekend in Cambridge. To be recommended. Knowledgeable guide with built in humour !

  • Our punting trip was much enjoyed. I would recommend it highly. Our guide was Jack B and he was very good.

  • A fantastic and highly recommended tour to go on. The punt operator, Ben, was very experienced guiding the punt through the river traffic and gave a very knowledgable overview of the colleges and history of the area.

  • My family and I loved, loved, lovvveddd the Punting Tour, we were greeted by the wonderful Calum. He was informative, witty and not to mention very patient I had 3 young girls who had alot of questions to ask, some related to the tour and some not so I would most definitely recommend this Tour.
