No visit to Cambridge is complete without a Cambridge Punting tour along the River Cam with views of The Backs of the colleges. See spectacular views of King's College, Trinity and other riverside Colleges from the water on a Cambridge Punting tour. Punts, which are square-ended boats with flat bottoms, are unique to Cambridge and the Fens. This perfectly designed stable boat dates back to the medieval period but was first introduced in Cambridge during the Edwardian era.
A wide choice of Cambridge Punting Tours are available, either guided or self-guided. Tour companies include friendly Scudamore's, the city's oldest punting company. Other well established Cambridge Punting Tour companies include Cambridge Chauffeur Punts and The Granta Boat & Punting Company.
