    I purchased our punting trip from a vendor in the centre of town who collared us as we walked past. To the lady who left the review about being "ripped off", you've got to haggle. I got their £10 guide book to Cambridge and a punt for two for what I consider to be a reasonable price. The company must make a profit, the boatman deserves a reasonable day's pay. We paid £30 per head and feel that that was good value for money. Punting is a magical experience and one not to be missed in Cambridge.

    On the whole a great experience. Some helpful staff some not so. On arrival in my wheelchair with my daughters I needed the toilet . Unfortunately there are no toilet facilities onsite only in the local pub when it opens lunch time or all the way back down into the local cafe . Very accommodating staff in the cafe. Once arriving back at Mill lane i asked how i get down to the boats and was told down the slope and they will pop a ramp down . Ok perfect. However the slope backs around on itself and is rather dangerous. Covered in thick wet mud at which my wheelchair got stuck and a lumpy brick sticking up did not help. My daughters had to push/ veer me in the right direction . ( Might i suggest that its cleared of debris and mud as its very dangerous as i nearly ended tipping over and its hard enough in a wheelchair let alone more challenges ) once down by the boats a very helpful young man helped me mobalise over and into the boat also ensuring we had hot water bottles and blankets. Very kind. Off we went and might i say a fantastic punter who was so knowledgeable of all the sights/ bridges took us off down the river. He was fantastic! A very pleasant / relaxing experience. On returning and back off the boat the same helpful ypung man helped me back to my wheelchair . Off back up the slope we went and once again nearly tipped over and veered off towards the waters edge!! Terrifying! My daughter then grabbed the wheelchair one side and my other daughter pulled the wheelchair up over the slippery mud and protruding brick and back to safety. Thank goodness they were with me as i feel i may of ended up in the river! Please please clear this issue and make it safe as its an accident waiting to happen!! Please consider how it might be for a wheelchair user. Thank you otherwise for a fabulous fun punt. Would definitely recommend.

    Be very careful how much they charge you .The man who approached us made us believe he was doing us a deal stating if we booked now he would agree to £20 lower than the board price which we agreed to. However once he took us to the till to pay £50 for my daughter & I, we heard him laugh behind our backs bragging to his colleagues " haha I got £50!" We demanded a refund. The manager said we could have bartered with him! I don't think this is fair at all -The price should be the same for everyone on the same day irrelevant of how brave you are to barter. We went to a company called Scholars who are a 10second walk away who only charged us £30 for exactly the same experience (minus a blanket which we didn't need anyway )

    What a brilliant experience! Beautiful weather helped but our guide was absolutely brilliant. His name was Jack, and he had learnt so much about both the river and Cambridge generally, he clearly has a genuine passion for history. He was engaging with the whole boat, and kept us entertained the whole journey. It was well priced and comfortable etc but Jack made the experience for us, would recommend this company for anyone visiting.
