    Well worth a punt! 😉

    We took 10:15 public punt. Trip included lots of history and stories with very adept young lady in charge of getting us up and down the river. It was getting busy as we came back down the river so would suggest early trip. We all really enjoyed it - great fun, would recommend.

    This is a great way to see Cambridge with 2 sons, ages 20 and 18, who arent easily entertained. We had a gorgeous day and the punting experience was so fun and entertaining

    The tour is not very professional. The money is not worth. Also misleading to put 9am on the confirmation, in fact, it is not the time for boarding but their opening hour.

    This was probably our 4th punting tour, we tend to take family when visiting. This was out first time with Scudamore's. The team was friendly and accommodating. The trip went well but our personal guide was not super informative and spoke very quietly so it was hard to hear him.
