Denis was affable and very helpful when organising the trip. On the water Dennis was knowledgeable and a brilliant guide, and we benefited from his excellent knowledge of the river and surrounding areas. Couldn’t recommend more.

Hello, There is a phone number on his website isn't there? If not there is a contact section. Denis was a little difficult to get hold of at times but I think that is more because he is very relaxed/easy going rather than... More
