Punting is a much-loved Oxford tradition and not as hard as people expect. Propel your flat-bottomed punt along glorious leafy backwaters as your passengers relax, and then maybe stop for a picnic on the banks of the Cherwell. For the less energetic, a chauffeured punts can be hired. There is also an electric-powered river launch, Magdalena, which departs every forty minutes from midday. Punts can be hired from 9:30a until dusk, and there is a shop on the bank selling ice cream, drinks, sandwiches and souvenirs.
I Have visited a few punt operations like this one and have never seen such massive crowds lined up and waiting for a beautiful and entertaining experience. We were both chauffered and did it ourselves the experience was great.
A great group of experienced staff makes a very tough job look effortless, a great thanks to all of them for making my groups visit to Oxford that much more valuable.
