My Son booked this day out canoeing down the River Wye. We were taken by people carrier up stream to Ross on Wye where we launched and travelled downstream back to Kearne Bridge where Wye Pursuits are based and then after lunch continued down to Symonds Yat. The staff were chatty, friendly and helpful and we really had a great... More

Just had a great bespoke day with Wye Pursuits. A morning of climbing and then an abseil, followed by an afternoon caving. Owners were very accommodating, enabling us to tailor our chosen activities over a day. We are complete novices and found it very challenging, but Guy gave us great encouragement and we didn't feel rushed. Came home tired, bruised... More

Had a great time canoeing 10 miles down the River from Wye Pursuits to Symonds Yat for my stag do along with 12 of my pals. Guy gave us a firm but fair safety talk and then we were straight onto the water in the canoes. We had a really good laugh paddling our way downstream and generally messing about... More

Myself and plenty of my friends go on several trips down the Wye every year, and not once have we had a problem. In fact, every experience has been so very memorable, and has certainly given us some tales to tell. Whilst being great value for money, Guy and his family are always so helpful and welcoming; nothing is ever... More

We hired 2 canoes with friends at the weekend. Kit was all good, safety was key but not overwhelming and the owners very friendly. A thorough briefing was provided before we left including information on the route, river positioning and technique. Location is great with plenty of parking in the car park next door and right on the river so... More

We enjoyed the full day trip from Ross to Symonds Yat with WYE PURSUITS. We saw lots of kingfishers, ducks, swans and the peregrine falcons. Would recommend trip with Teenagers as they even remarked on the peace and beauty of the trip!! The equipment was good and the staff helpful and with a sense of fun. Safety was covered well... More

Park in the public carpark next to the roadside sign for Wye Pursuits. Quickly & efficiently kitted up & river advice given. So easy. Wonderful trip. Falcons overhead, mink swimming beside us. Heaven. Easily spotted sign at the exit at Symonds Yap. Quick trip to base after a short wait for the minibus. Toilets in village hall at base. A... More

Customer service was exceptional. Guy and his wife bent over backwards to get us on the water even though they were fully booked and we hadn't phoned ahead. They are very professional regarding safety and the equipment we used was faultless. We have used wye pursuits before about a year ago and Guy remembered us which is always nice. We... More

Brilliant day out with Wye pursuits they really made it happen for us! We booked online and we had the most fabulous time on the wonderful river Wye . Guy is the owner and he will greet you then give you a full comprehensive safety talk before he lets you on the river. Couldn't recommend Wye Pursuits more for family... More
