We were lucky with the weather apart from struggling against a bit of wind. The canoes were lashed together which meant it was very stable. A good half day activity!

Quite simply, awful. Whether it's the staff having no brain, or the manager not allowing them to use it, we came across this company twice and encountered THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE IN THE WORLD! First trying to rent kayaks, we were told that we weren't good enough to rent them, by a very unenthusiastic gentleman with zero personality, just telling... More

We went last week and these guys were really friendly and helpful. We'd not done this before so they strapped 2 canoes together for us (me, my wife and the 2 kids) and off we went down the Wye... We saw an otter, 2 leaping salmon, a kingfisher and loads of other wildlife - it really was idylic and nowhere... More

We canoed for 2 days from Ross on Wye to Redbrook. The first day was a LOT longer than I anticipated but... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable 2.5 hour canoe down the River Wye and was provided with good equipment, safety briefing and transportation to launch site. It would have been nice if, as patrons, we had been provided with either reduced price or free parking for a reasonable period.

Myself and the other half had an amazing half day canoeing experience last Sunday. So much so we are looking at buying a canoe for next summer. Thanks to the staff who were very helpful and polite.

I've hired canoes with another company on the river before but they were definitely not as good as Wyedean Canoe centre. We went on a 3 day drip from Hoarwithy to Redbrook camping at Ross-on-Wye and Wyedean Canoe Centre and had no complaints at all. Friendly and helpful staff with maps and reassurance provided.

Book half day canoeing although the canoeing was good the staff was extremely rude! From the point on booking to the point of leaving we felt like an inconvenience! When we turned up the staff behind the counter was very miserable no smile to welcome it felt like give us your money! When we went to get on the boat... More

We took 13 children with 7 leaders on a 9 mile trip down symonds yat. The experience for all was great, the instructors had great games for us to play to get the kids and some adults used to maneuvering the boats. Overall a fantastic opportunity for the kids as alot had not done anything like this before. Some great... More

We chose to do the 9 mile trip down the river to Symonds Yat East (right by the campsite), it normally takes about 3 hours, we took slightly longer as we really took our time and even chose to have a swim! They supply the Canadian canoe, paddles (plus spare), bouyancy aids, and water-tight barrels. Don't forget your sun cream,... More
