We have been in Cambridge before so our expectations were to have similar experience, but unfortunately it was nothing alike. The boat was so narrow, it hardly could fit 4 adults, it was so low in water we were afraid to move, there was water in boat, so our shoes got all wet, and no blankets provided considering it was December. There was nothing to see during the experience, you just have a quick 30min loop around the empty field, in awkward silence, as the punting guide didn't say a word about Oxford.

Friendly staff, quick response on arrival. Mark punt for us, nice lad, strong current when return by he handled well. Reasonable price and children love it, recommend for family travelling oxford.

We had a lovely trip round the river. Our guide grew up in Oxford and gave us good pointers about the sites we passed and some of the history of Oxford University. We also talked about English schools vs. American (I had a lot of questions!).

I wanted a half hour punt, which showed up as £80 for the four of us. Expensive, I thought, but worth it for a treat. When we arrived, I was told that in fact the £80 is for an HOUR’s punt, which we didn’t have time for, as I had only allowed 30 mins - as advertised on Tripadvisor. I asked for a refund but the punt boss said no. I wrote to Tripadvisor but they also refused to refund me the money for the half of the journey we were unable to use. My advice: be very careful you are not fleeced by Tripadvisor for the full hour, if you only want 30 minutes. It is expensive!
