Our guide Byron was great even though it rained and even hailed while we were punting. We were provided blankets and we enjoyed his commentary.

Chris was awesome and our tour was great! Only hiccup we had was we booked through trip advisor and the company had no record of our booking. Chris was able to accommodate us into a group booking that started about 20 minutes after our scheduled time. He was very knowledgeable and funny. We definitely recommend taking one of these tours.

Chris was a fun and extremely knowledgeable guide today who gave us an hours punt full of interesting facts about Cambridge and key ex students to UK history. Wished we had booked 2 hours. Punts had very warm cosy blankets.

We booked to do a ghost punting tour in the evening whilst on a city break in Cambridge. The meeting point was easy to find and we were promptly greeted by our tour guide Chris, he took us through a breif overview of what would be covered on the tour before setting off. The punt itself was luxurious and comfy, and blankets were provided to keep us warm as the sun set. Chris was very charismatic and knowledgeable, we all enjoyed learning the spookier past of Cambridge. Would definitely recommend!

Daniel was really entertaining, patient and hilarious! It was a really great experience! The only part which was not great was the team that handles bookings, timings etc. Despite calling earlier to say we would get there 10 min later than scheduled and the person on the phone confirming that this was not a problem, we had to wait over 2 hours for the ride. The ride was excellent because of the guide, but the other people who were part of the booking, waiting, office etc were not customer friendly. I would have marked it exceptional if it were not for that.
