we have just come back from a weekend in forest of dean. we stayed at forest holidays and booked a caving experience through our site reception for the sunday. when we arrived we realized that it was just us 4 doing the caving on that day. where as the groups are normally up to 10 people. this was to our advantage as we really got the most out of time with the instructor who tailored the day to our needs. our instructor James was so friendly and helpful. he was full of knowledge about the caves and made us feel safe at at ease despite the biggest lad in our group being scared!!! i must say this experience was much harder then we thought. but in a good way! we expected a stroll through some caves with a few crawls! my god the 4 of us were put to the test. we had a 20min hike down to the caves and when we got inside the caves it was incredible!! we had to crawl through narrow tunnels and small openings. James said he takes groups of school children down there but we all definitely felt this is an experience for all ages. we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. one member of our group really felt nervous about even entering the opening of some of the caves but with James putting him at ease and re assuring him he was able to complete all the caves!! i would definitely recommend this trip to all ages!! it is a MUST if you visit the forest. We are already planning to return and do canoeing with this company!

Had a brilliant day on Saturday (5th Oct) when a party of twenty six of us from our local church had a canoe trip on the Wye as part of our 'big day out'. Had booked with Wyedean on the recommendation of a friend, and could not have found them to be more helpful. Both in the planning of the trip, and on the day itself, the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We all arrived on time, and the expedition got underway without a hitch in glorious autumn weather. I can say without exception that everyone on our trip (from four years old to fifty plus!) had a wonderful day. Thank you to James and all at Wyedean.

we took the Canadian canoes for a 9 mile trip down the river and we had a great time. We were a group of 12 people some of which (including me) had never been in a canoe before. James was very patient with us and he made sure that the group stayed together all the way through.

we had good weather and managed to see some of the local wildlife (birds of pray and loads of fish!) .

A really good experience for anyone wanting to have a go at canoeing :)

Brilliant time out on the river with a couple of canoes. Nothing was to much trouble for Ian and James to help us out with. The staff were friendly and professional and stacked with knowledge about the river and safety on the water. Incredible service at a great price

Just completed the 2 day paddle from Ross on Wye to Redbrook,camping at the campsite in Symonds Yat East for 2 nights and we had a brilliant time! Very lucky with the weather, but as its been quite a dry summer, the river was fairly low so we occasionally found ourselves grounded, and the rapids weren't difficult at all. There was a member of staff as the side of the rapid to guide us through. The staff are polite, friendly and helpful and I will definitely be back again next summer!
