What an excellent experience!?! The boat was in good shape, the captain was knowledgeable and fun. We had a beautiful day weather-wise. The only challenging element was navigating the path to the launch point. Due to construction underway on the boardwalk there are detours and for those of us unfamiliar with the area, it took more time to find it. Otherwise, it was perfect!

Really enjoyed the punt. We arrived late, so worried that we would lose our money, but we were able to negotiate an arrangement suitable to all. Really helpful and efficient customer service. On phone and in person. Good guide, though his voice could've been louder for people furthest away. All round positive, relaxing and stimulating experience.


The guided punting tour was a lot of fun. It was something - relaxing, chill, and informative. Highly recommend recommended.

Sehr sehenswert, vor allem der wunderschöne Park.
