Great trip down the river, not too difficult so would be suitable for families. Make sure to listen to the instructor about possible capsizing spots. We saw a canoe of 3 girls go over, with not very many places to get back in.

The staff were very friendly, answering all our questions .They were very knowledgeable and good people. I would highly recommend Wye Pursuits to everyone who's after a... More

We paddled down the river from Kerne Bridge to Symons Yat. It was an excellent way to see the river and Sonnie and Guy of Wye Pursuits offered a very efficient and friendly service. Pre-start tips and information was very good as was the prompt pick-up in Symon Yat.

We've used wye pursuits on many occasions for canoeing & have always found them an excellent company, the staff are always friendly & efficient & nothing is ever too much trouble. I would highly recommend Guy & Sonie to anyone interested in outdoor activities in the Wye valley area.

We are a family group 5 adults and 4 children, aged between 6 yrs and 11yrs. We had a fabulous afternoon kayaking down the river with this company. It was a lovely opportunity to experience stunning views and lots of unusual wildlife. We found it very leisurely. The only thing we'd improve were the toilet facilities.

As a family of 5 we hired two canoes and set off: well I had to learn how to steer first! We made our way down 8 miles of the Wye gently assisted by the current. There were plenty of places to stop for lunch and well water fights along the way. We had an amazing day out and were... More

It was lovely to meet Guy, Sonie and their fantastic team. They were unflappable, efficient and incredibly nice. We did a full day of canoing and raft-building on the river Wye and It was a relief for me and the other team organiser to hand our unruly and perhaps unlikely bunch into their very calm capable hands. We had a... More

we were a party of seven.Six guys one,girl.We were rushed down the river and very much made to feel like we were on a deadline.Speaking to other groups from different tour companies,I wish I'd looked around before booking.You're probably only going to do this once so my advice is try someone else.
