Had a great time yesterday canoeing on the union canal in Edinburgh with Epic ventures, my partner booked it as a surprise and can honestly we both had a great time, and our instructor/guide Michael was fantastic, couldn’t have asked for a nicer guy to show us what to do. Thanks again for a great afternoon. Kenny and Laura

The guys Lee and Michael were very friendly and helpful and got my two friends steering an open canoe in a very quick time. Lee guided us on the trip and was very knowledgeable and helpful and good fun.

Myself and a group of colleagues went kayaking on the Union Canal and from the start the guides were amazing. All safety information was given to us clearly, followed by a briefing on how to actually kayak/canoe. We did a half day and the guides packed it full of games rather than just a trip up and down the canal, they had us all laughing and smiling the whole time we were on the water and didn't once get fed up when some people (me) ended up trailing behind from being completely unable to control the kayak in the wind. If you can, I would 100% recommend booking with this company - you will not be disappointed at all and will be a very memorable experience. They also take photos for you and put them on the facebook page so you have some physical memories of your day on the canal!

Was in port from a cruise ship, didn't really like the excursions offered. So my son and I decided to look for some sea kayaking. In one word, awesome. The booking was dead simple. The guides Michael and Lee picked us up right at the pier. The trip itself was exactly what we wanted, a nice workout with great scenery. The guides were informative and fun. Personable and professional at the same time. Willing and able to adjust the plan on the fly. Worth every penny and more.

What a day! Birthday gift from my husband - Lee and Michael were our instructors and guides for the day. Both patient and very pleasant to deal with. Michael took some amazing photos of us on his drone. Even shared sun tan lotion (can you believe we needed it). Planning a future trip with Epic Ventures for our family. Would highly recommend them
