Combine both of these things by going on a private Cambridge punting tour, which will take you past the back of multiple colleges such as Magdalene College, and Kings College. You’ll access picturesque views that can only be reached by water, and you’ll have direct access to your chauffeur for questions as it’s a private tour.

Wouldn’t punt with anyone else!
Jul 2021 • Solo
There are so many punting companies in Cambridge, it’s hard to pick one but I had heard great reviews of Let’s Go and their prices are very competitive, with more slot options than some other companies.
I wasn’t disappointed - I booked a private tour at sunset, when the river is more quiet, and it was a lovely evening. Charles was very friendly and knowledgeable, great at navigating the boat around the much less-expert but very enthusiastic people on self-hire punts!
Would totally recommend them to anyone looking for a great punting experience.

Jul 2021 • Family
We booked a private tour for seven of us in a 12 seater. It was so easy and straightforward to do online with clear instructions and information so can’t go wrong. We were lucky with the beautiful weather but every one of us said how much we enjoyed it. We went out with Ben F who was really knowledgable and entertaining. I would highly recommend taking some time out to enjoy this!

My marriage proposal boat trip.
My girlfriend and i went to Cambridge on the 17th July 2021 with our intention on going on a punt trip with "Let's go punting". It was a private boat including our guide called Charles, he was brilliant and his knowledge of the colleges were 2nd to none.
While on the trip I gave Charles the wink that I was going to propose to my girlfriend and I asked him if he could pull up somewhere that was most scenic which he did do, alongside Kings Collage, great spot. I asked if he could take a snap of my partner and I standing up with the collage in the background then after a few snaps that's when I got on one knee...the cheers and applause around us were fantastic, also the drinks boat came alongside and gave us a bottle of prosecco (what a nice thing to do) cheers guys!! Charles our guide, well what a fantastic fellow he is, great guide, great punter and a very good snapper with the phone camera
Thank you Charles 👌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Kind regards, jeff and faye. Ps faye did say yes btw lol

Punting Great Experience
Jul 2021 • Couples
We had never visited Cambridge before so me and my partner decided to embark on a punting tour with Let’s Go Punting. Our tour guide Arthur made it that extra bit special as it was our first time in the city. He was very welcoming and through through out the tour was very detailed with the history and the surrounding buildings we passed, the ride was smooth and we would definitely recommend Arthur as a tour guide.

An Excellent Experience
Jul 2021
Our host was Cos, a Cambridge Uni language student. He was knowledgeable, charming and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and count ourselves lucky to have had Cos as "captain". We learnt a lot about the colleges generally and about being a student at this famous and beautiful university. The Pimm's Boat was a welcome sight, rounding off a top notch trip.

Relaxing, enjoyable and informative
I took my wife away for her special birthday for a 2 night break in Cambridge. As we missed out on a trip to Venice for our 10th wedding anniversary last year due to the pandemic, punting was a must. We were not disappointed. Our punter Charlie was exceptionally knowledgeable about the colleges, told us some interesting facts and made a point of showing us the best photo opportunities along the river. We had a great conversation. I would highly recommend!
