Assistant was brilliant. Management rude from the offset. Zero people skills. On return they shouted and swore aggressively in our faces for being 15 mins late. Never again.

Had a really great day on our canoe trip. Family if 4 with 2 children aged 5 & 8. They loved it too. Nice gentle ride, beautiful scenery. Kids lived it, enjoyed helping with paddling. They were relaxed and entertained all day, and plenty of fresh air. Lovely pub to stop at lunch. Staff were really friendly and helpful, great... More

I booked this trip with Ross on Wye Canoe Hire with 5 friends as a way to celebrate my 32nd birthday and it certainly didn't disappoint! The trip is 24 miles in total over two days and despite concerns over a lack of fitness and the forecasted weather, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much... More

The company made it really straight forward to enjoy our day: lend you the equipment you need, loading you and it onto a minibus, taking you to the start point, setting you off, and collecting you at the end. Friendly and helpful staff. Efficient to respond to requests for bookings and changed the date of our outing without trouble even... More

I have booked with Richard and the team two years running now. They are very friendly and do everything they can to make the trip as enjoyable and safe as possible. Richard even turned up with certificates for the children when we got to the end of the paddle, which they adore and have proudly displayed in their bedrooms! Don't... More

We went to buy this deal through the Groupon offer for the one day Ross-on-Wye to Symonds Yat for our first anniversary. Unfortunately it was fully booked on Groupon, but Richard and the team very kindly let us book through them for that price. We arrived on the Sunday with a very friendly greeting, and very well organised. After being... More
