Three of us had planned a four day trip down the river Wye but at the last minute one member of the group pulled out with a suspected maldivitus. So there were just two of us who travelled down to Symond's Yat for our pre-arranged meet at 1pm. Unfortunately my companion and driver had little sense of urgency and after... More

We hired a canoe for the afternoon and despite my never having canoed previously and my partners limited experience, not only did we remain dryish, but we had a serene few hours paddling down the river Wye from Kerne Bridge to Symonds Yat. Absolutely worth the trip!

I wanted to give the kids something physically active to do after days of computer games and dvds during the Summer holiday.. Wye canoes had a perfect taster session for my 12 and 10 year old. 3-4 hours of gentle paddling interspersed with light terror as we traversed tame "rapids" and "whirl pools" We arrived and parked for free in...

We had a fantastic afternoon gently rowing our way down river past Yat Rock. There were 3 of us, 2 adults and a 14 year old, we all had a great time. We were on the water for 2 1/2 hours which enabled us to see far more of the area than by car and it was such a peaceful... More

Booked for two days on the Wye - day 1 from Kerne Bridge to Symond's Yat, day 2 from Symond's Yat to Redbrook. It would be fair to say the staff were casual, but they couldn't have been friendlier or more knowledgeable. We dealt with 2 or 3 staff members, all great, and had the same driver / briefer on...

I texted Wye Canoes, as advertised on their promo material. No response. Perhaps they had a full complement of tourists that day. Perhaps they don't need the business. Whichever the case, they're lacking in common courtesy.

Hello and thank you for your feedback, I'm afraid that at this time of year (i.e. school hols) we get hundreds of emails, phone calls and texts every day and unfortunately there simply isn't enough time in the day to respond to all of them, we do however try really hard to make sure we return every phone call every...

This was just great fun! We got lucky as we walked up (two of us) and were able to nab a place, but they have three set off times a day and it gets busy so it might be safer to book. You can also hire by the hour. The price (we did the half day) was great! They kit... More

Had a terrific time. Really helpful team who kitted us out, bussed us to the start and gave a clear and concise safety/directions talk - they love what they do and want you to love it too and have a great experience

Camping in the area and decided to try canoeing for first time with our 13 year old son and dog 'Splash' for the first time. Really friendly and helpful staff from booking process to end of the day. Exceptional value and can't wait to do it again.
