Punt Tour and Lesson

Punting Lessons on the College Backs

Learn to Punt

The punt and lesson Tour starts with our 45 minute award-winning private punt trip through the beautiful College Backs, guided by one of our professional chauffeurs.

Once you've seen the expert at work, you'll learn to punt with 45 minutes of individual tuition in the noble art of punting from your chauffeur. Whilst we can't guarantee to make you an expert in one session, you'll certainly have lots of fun trying!
