'The time has come,' the Walrus said,
'To talk of many things:
Of shoes - and ships - and sealing-wax -
Of cabbages - and kings - '

The 1.6km (1 mile) section of the Cam known as the College Backs is
one of the most beautiful lengths of river in England. Set amidst
spacious lawns and intimate gardens are some of Cambridge's grandest
buildings, including King's College Chapel, the Wren Library
and the Bridge of Sighs.
We run regular 45 minute public tours (in 12-seater shared punts) of the
College Backs and these can be joined on a walk-up basis. Alternatively,
you can buy public punt tour E-Tickets online and enjoy maximum flexibility
together with preferential rates. We also offer Combined E-Tickets, such as the
Punt & Bus Tour, which pair an off-river activity with the public punt tour places.
Our private tour booking service is perfect for groups of 8 people or more who
would like to arrange their own exclusive punt for a particular date and time.
Private tour options range from a stand-alone College Backs Tour to a variety
of packages, each of which incorporates another activity, such as afternoon tea,
cocktails or a salsa class.
