Great experience. Extremely fun to be a part of. Especially watching other people trying to navigate their own boats. 😅🤣

Our guide, Jack, was outstanding! We unknowingly booked our tour for matriculation day when every freshman also wanted to go punting as part of the tradition. He expertly guided us around the less skilled "freshers" and regaled us with stories of the colleges and life in Oxford. We had a wonderful time!

I have always wanted to go punting, ever since reading Harry Potter and realizing Filch wasn’t drop kicking the students over the Weasley twins pond (I’m American, cut me some slack). Great experience! Joe, the punter, made the trip wonderful for us- he is very knowledgeable and let us ask a bunch of history questions! Of which he knew the answers!!

We were excited to punt in Oxford and Joe was a great guide!! Very knowledgeable and let us direct the conversation. He seemed like a pretty brilliant young man- he made the experience wonderful for us!!
