In Cambridge, Punting is the Number 1 tourist activity and sits at the top of the list when asking: ‘What to do with your day out in Cambridge?’ Hence why thousands of visitors every year join us to enjoy the majesty of the River Cam on a chauffeured punt tour. We offer both private and shared punting tours of Cambridge and its riverside colleges. Of course, your tour comes complete with an expertly trained chauffeur who will effortlessly glide you along the Cam, whilst providing an entertaining tour with stories, anecdotes and historical facts about Cambridge University and in particular the Colleges you pass during the tour.

Throughout the summer we host a series of events called Music on the River. These run over three Fridays in July and August.

Music on the River is the perfect choice for an evening out which is a little different! Spend a magical evening floating past the magnificent College Backs whilst enjoying some beautiful music.

Our flotilla of boats will slowly glide up to the Mill Pond and back to Jesus Green, the ‘college backs’ with be bathed in the evening sun (we hope) and you will be entertained and enthralled

Allow yourself time to relax whilst you are chauffeured downstream, taking in all that surrounds you as well as listening to some incredible acoustic music. These events will bring you a different perspective to live music, giving you the chance to immerse yourself in beauty, mingle with like-minded music fans and connect with artists themselves whilst on board. It is a great way to spend your summer evening with a drink in hand at a music venue like no other.
