Had a brilliant day canoeing in the beautiful Wye valley. Had 2 canoes tied together like a catamaran so felt very safe for the kids. They really loved it, it was really special to be followed by a kingfisher throughout our trip too. Will definitely be booking again 😊

Lovely day out and a beautiful stretch of the river Wye. The river was rather busy, certainly much busier than further upstream. Wye dean were very efficient.

Thoroughly enjoyed our half day canoeing trip. Price was reasonable for a 3 hour trip. We had two canoes joined together as two of us were inexperienced but would not hesitate to try it again in a single boat. A trip down the river from Kearne bridge to Symonds yat is relatively sedate but very enjoyable. We even managed to... More

Great place for getting on the river for both the experienced and the beginner. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Good safety briefing and a healthy dose of "letting you get on with it"

The young lads on arrival & took us to launch (Chris & Carlie) were very friendly & helpful, the owner needs to work on his management skills & ask what happened before jumping the gun (2 sides to every story). A lot of the others working there need to learn their P's & Q's manners don't cost nothing, found them... More

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
