Loads of wildlife almost got bored with the nos of kingfishers we saw. Stuart is a class act and after a team brief let us get on with... More

We booked for a group of 4 in two canoes for the trip from Kerne Bridge to Symonds Yat, and had a great time. The trip took around 2.5 hours at a leisurely pace, past stunning scenery and plentiful wildlife on a beautiful October morning. The whole thing - from arrival to briefing to the collection of the boats at... More

I was part of a group that went from Kerne Bridge down to Symonds Yat, we all absolutely loved it and had a really great day out. Loads of wildlife to see and not too far. Wye canoes were great, despite being professional it still felt like a family run business which was nice and despite having to change our... More

We were a group of 6 with 2 kids. Wonderful experience. We got 2 canoes and rowed for 9 miles in 4.5 hours. Simply loved it. They lashed the 2 canoes together for more stability and it was simple wonderful. Highly recommend.

We did a two-day trip on one of their busiest summer weekends. They were obviously under pressure but got everybody to the right place with the right equipment in comfort. Their briefings were good, the people were friendly but not obsequious. Their advice about meeting points and accommodation etc. was spot on. I thought the price was pretty good. Will... More

Booking was a bit hit and miss due the non-existent phone signal at The Old Pump House in Symonds Yat, but was finally made by text message on a walk to Monmouth. Stuart kitted us out, made us familiar with our canoe and kayak, gave us our safety brief and some tips on navigating the rapids. After a short mini-bus... More

They told us what to do, gave us the gear, dropped us off at the right place and left us to do a full day's canoeing downstream which was very enjoyable. Thanks guys!
