Good gear, nice people, sound info and left us to it.

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!

A full day kayaking from Kerne Bridge to Monmouth - WOW what a way to celebrate a big 6-0 birthday, (or just have a fun day out). Stuart is incredibly passionate about the Wye; after a full safety/route briefing and being kitted out it was a quick 10 minute trip to be dropped off at Kerne Bridge. Highlights in no... More

I booked a canoe a week in advance to ensure availability and was told that we would have to arrive at 1pm for the afternoon half day session from Kerne Bridge to Symonds Yat. I wrote down the details and paid my 50% deposit and thought that would be that. The meeting place was 35 minutes drive from where we... More

Called in the morning to book a canoe and was told to book on arrival. On arrival was informed that there were no canoes available until 16.00. We had travelled from Cardiff so decided to go for lunch and wait as we were there for a birthday celebration. Come 16.00 we went to try and book a canoe and were... More

This clearly is NOT us, we do not have anyone called Ollie working on reception and we have never run canoe trips at 4pm. I have also noticed that you posted this review on another companies page before us and clearly you had the wrong company there too. Can I suggest you spend a few minutes making sure you have...

The nice weather helped, but this was superb way of whiling away an afternoon. The instructions were clear and service was great. It;s also extremely good value for money. Highly recommended.

Had a wonderful day on the River Wye - did the full 15 miles from Ross-on-Wye back to Symonds Yat in a canoe. The scenery was amazing - and the organisation of this trip was spot on.

We hired a 2 seater canoe for 6 days paddling from Glasbury to Whitebrook for a very reasonable price. The non-existent mobile reception along parts of the Wye valley coupled with few bridges and narrow country roads make communication and transport difficult at times, but Wye Canoes were very helpful and always a pleasure to deal with.

Organised with Stuart and his team for a group of 16 women to canoe down the Wye in the morning with two canoe guides and do a guided walk in the afternoon as a celebration for my 50th birthday. A morning of hilarity followed as we canoed about seven miles on the wonderful scenic Wye. I had a few friends... More

Never doen this before even though we only live 45 mins away! We discovered Wye Canoes on a web site, got in touch and went along that week. Half day canoe hire with a drop off up river for £33 - bargain. My daughter (9yrs old) and I had 3 - 4 hours canoeing down the Wye which was great.... More

I can't recommend wye canoes enough, our two days on the water were pretty much perfect. The team were incredibly helpful and friendly when booking the trip and answered any questions we had. We were new to canoeing and were fully briefed by Stuart on safety procedures and steering techniques in the mornings before setting off - he definitely knows... More

Thank you for your great feedback, that route is a great two day trip finishing just above Tintern Abbey, lovely and quiet most of the time and I agree the Boat Inn at Redbrook is certainly worth a visit. Hope to see you again in the future. More
