We arrived at Symonds Yat wanting to go canoeing for half the day. It wasn't until we arrived that we realised that people tend to book these, so we just had a walk around and spoke to nearly every company to see if they had any availability. They did not. We then came back to the centre and decided the... More

Wyedean Canoe & Adventure Centre is a very good place to take the youth group, but be prepared to get wet! The staff were excellent as they took us both upstream to learn various canoe techniques and then downstream through the rapids, only you have to haul your canoe back up the easier side through the water! It was good... More

Although Tom our instructor was very good at showing us the cave and how to go caving, we did find the long walk to and from the cave ruined our experience. We were told it was an half a day activity which we though was doing caving, but this included the long walk to the cave. This walk was a... More

Wyedean Canoe Hire helped me to organise a team building activity for myself and 11 other work colleagues. The process of booking was really easy, requiring full payment upon booking. Vicky was very helpful in facilitating this. On the day, we arrived early and were advised to return at our allotted time. After a coffee in one of the beautiful... More

What a lovely couple of days we had kayaking in the Wye, the staff were so supportive and helpful and definitely went that extra mile to make sure we had a safe and fun journey. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Had a lovely half day canoe trip with Wyedean, paid extra to be guided by a nice lad called Jesse who looked after us and made sure we knew what we were doing. The whole experience was pretty seamless, well organised and reassuringly safe. Three hours - including a stop for a picnic - was enough for us (2 adults... More

The family had an excellent time Paddleboarding on a sunny afternoon. Dad fell in, and youngest followed not long after but no one cared. A afternoon full of fun and lots of water. Great exercise, they were all worn out but very happy. Thank you Jesse for making it a great experience.

Had a fabulous half day canoeing with family. Half day from Kearne Bridge to Symonds Yat took about 3 hours. The whole experience from arriving at the car park to canoeing back was very well organised. Not the friendliest bunch, but we still had a great day.

Shocking service. We booked a day canoeing as a start to a stag do for the coming weekend, it took 3 days to get hold of them on the phone and once we did we managed to hire a canoe and agreed we were taking one of our own, The lady took our booking confirmed all was OK and confirmed... More

WyedeanCanoe, General Manager at Wyedean Canoe Day Trips And Activity Centre, responded to this review

It is most unfortunate that we have to respond to this person It became apparent after the point of booking that the client wished for us to transport his own boats aswell as ours but refused to pay for it, hence we cancelled the booking based on his refusal to pay! I am sure readers will agree that if you... More

Great time splashing about on the river and lots of different options for you to choose. As a family of four we chose an hour long hire and joined two canoes together and had a lot of fun, although be warned due to the strength of the current it can be quite tiring.
