My friend & I had a brilliant time on our punting tour! It was a chilly day but we had warm blankets to cover our legs & our seats were comfy. Our guide Zack was absolutely fab! Charming & funny, full of interesting information & facts about Cambridge, very knowledgeable about the area & history, kept us completely entertained, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Apart from the guide & beautiful views, amazing buildings & so much history it was great value for money would highly recommend. We will definitely be taking another punt on the river Cam in the near future.
