With our private tours we offer you the luxury of a whole boat to yourself which is not shared with other passengers.

Private Punting Tour with a glass of wine

Each boat holds up to 12 passengers, however, we may reduce this during flood or drought.

Booking a private tour gives you more freedom to tailor your guide's commentary to your party's interests and tastes. You might prefer a more relaxed approach, where you can ask your guide to tell you about specific scenery and buildings that interest you, rather than hearing  the traditional commentary. However you wish to hear the commentary all of our chauffeurs are very knowledgeable about Canterbury, its buildings, and history as well as local folklore and ghost stories!

Private tours last 45 minutes and start and end at our station on Water Lane. Many people find that accompanied by Champagne or Pimms the private tour makes for the perfect authentic punting experience. These extras can be purchased during the checkout process.

Last minute and evening tours can't always be purchased through the website, so feel free to call and check availability on 01227464797.

We hope you have a very enjoyable and relaxing punting experience.
