I went with a friend and we both thought the whole experience was great - a wonderful way to see the college backs - and as he punted Dan provided us with just the right amount of information - money very well spent

One of the best managed punting tours in Cambridge. Our experience wasn't as good, because it started to rain. Scudmores were the only company that provided umbrella's for protection and blankets for warmth.

Really funny experience and if you book online it's a bit cheaper than buying insite. During the boat ride the tour guide will tell you about the history of the places with some funny stories!

We arrived earlier than our booked time for 12:00pm, but we were happy to know that we could go for punting next run at 10:30am. It has been a very memorable experience.

Very enjoyable, with a very well informed young gentleman punting! Enjoyed it more than ride in a gondola in Venice!

A very enjoyable trip on the river Cam. Good value for money. Interesting and informative punter.
