Champagne Punt Tour
Champagne Punting in Cambridge
Four be the things I'd been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content and sufficient champagne.
From Inventory (Dorothy Parker)
It was Napoleon Bonaparte who wisely remarked: "I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate, and I drink Champagne when I lose, to console myself." So, whatever the occasion, why not celebrate (or seek consolation) in sparkling style with our 'Bubbles on the Backs' river tour?
With this effervescent package you take to the water in your own private punt for a tour of the College Backs. On-board you'll find a supply of Champagne on ice for your party to enjoy during the trip. You're also welcome to bring along your own nibbles and soft drinks.
With the punt and chauffeur all yours the tour can be tailored to your individual group's preferences. Although most popular as a pre-dinner activity, the Cambridge Champagne Punting experience will bring a sparkle to any occasion and any time of day.
