I got this day out as a present. I really enjoyed the day even though the weather was overcast. Meeting point is Ye Old Ferrie Inn. Were met by staff and given bacon sandwiches and tea to start the day. We were then kitted out and taken to the launch site for the morning's canoeing along the river. Nice leisurely... More

Although I would recommend to anyone the beauty of the Wye valley region, I would urge you not to use this company! The staff, as previous reviewers have already said, (please read them all) are not only rude but also indifferent to their paying customers. Any complaint or constructive feedback offered to them is dismissed to the point that whilst... More

Thank you for your feedback, I am extremely concerned by your comments and this does not sound at all like us, we are certainly not rude arrogant or lazy and we take feedback very seriously. My first impression is that you have the wrong company, there are many other businesses similar to us in Symonds Yat and people are often... More

Spent a fantastic weekend with Stuart, Lewis and Dean. The course was tailored to meet the needs and expectations of the participants, not just "taken from the book" which made a welcome change, fantastic local knowledge from all involved proved invaluable time and again. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will be booking again later in the year.

This was a fantastic day out - loved every minute! We go every year (sometimes twice) and we are both over 60 so don't be mislead into thinking that it is a young person's sport. You will feel tired when you finally get back to the start point but the views alone make it all worth while. Highly recommended.

I am so sorry for your inconvenience on the day of your trip. As you mention in your review we do go to great lengths to get our equipment ready prior to our customers arriving, and on the day of your trip we had loaded trailers with all the proposed equipment. One problem is that a number of separate customers... More

Decided to book this as a family treat. We were disappointed by the whole experience. Firstly we were sent to the wrong meeting point and waited for an hour. No one bothered to call us. We finally got on the water an hour and a half after we were due to start. Because we waited so long to start, we... More
