Great punting , prior info could be better

Punting was amazing. However by booking through viator we had not been told a time or told we should have secured this before the event!!!!!! , so luckily we arrived early in the day and were put with others . Better Information prior to this would have been helpful

Glad that you enjoyed the tour. We always recommend that customers book directly with our website in order to secure the best departure time. The Viator/Tripadvisor description does state this and explains why. It's written in capital letters in order to stand out.

The worst staff ever. Liars

The staff are very rude and bad. They didn't allow us to take our tour on time because they simply liars. They deny that we have an appointment at 13.00 because they sold our tickets to new clients fot 4 double price. Your company is and your staff are the worst we have ever seen in life. You did the same bad behaviour with others too. We have to wait for another late appointment at night just to use us. They are cheaters, liars and unrespectable. We don't recommend your service and your company to any other tourist in the UK just because you are liars and don't keep your appointment and promises. We are very disappointed with the way you deal with the tourist. We hate you we hate the very bad experience with you. We will never book with you in the future. We will never deal with you in the future. We recommend that all tourist and visitors will take a lesson. We swear to God that we said the truth and nothing but the truth that this punting tour company had its own staff are the worst ever simply because they deny your booking and they keep lying. They do sell your tickets with the time to others who pay more money. This is absolutely not fair. Shame on you. Very sad and very bad experience.

Misleading Booking Experience
Jay

My booking was paid for and confirmed online but when we went to check on the tour office was closed. I called the tour operator and he said the booking should not have gone through and to request a refund.

Pete was very informative and made the experience very amusing as well as interesting. Good knowledge of the history. We wished it could have lasted a little longer and a glass of bubbly to set us on our way😉. Thank you.

A lovely , mellow experience. Great guide and beautiful sights to be seen. The only downside is that the public toilets by the river bank are not nice-just a heads up to go before you take your trip down to the river.
