A group of 9 of us hired kayaks for the day. They were quick to reply to emails ahead of our hire, and laid everything out clearly. After a quick brief and kit up (included in the price), it was into the mini bus upstream. The navigation was clearly explained, and a good pub recommended. Our guide went through the... More

Three friends (ladies of a certain age) enjoyed enormously being escorted down the Wye Valley and experiencing the beauty.. and challenge.

We did the half day kayak trip from Monmouth to white room which I have to say was exceptional All life jackets and helmets for the children were supplied and the guide was very knowledgable As we were a family of four we had the two kayaks locked together which made any risk of captaining impossible til for families The...

We went on the 2 day canoe trip from Hoarwithy to Monmouth. We were complete novices so it took us a little longer than expected but not a problem. We were provided with an easy to read map, even if some of the scaling seemed pretty off. The last I spoke to on the phone was grumpy that I had... More

Used in the past. Great river trip, beautiful scenery and wildlife. Lovely day out. Good equipment. Only downside was being picked up for our return to the centre by a grumpy man. Then when back at the centre the way he spoke to the young happy lads was appalling.

We used this company to take a group of 34 people of all ages on the river from Kerne Bridge to Monmouth. A large group requiring a lot of organisation on both sides. In all my dealings with Monmouth Canoes, I never felt I was being a nuisance to them. They seemed to see my concerns and dealt with them... More

We booked out of office hours online, so naturally worried about whether the booking went through. Arrived early next day and there wasn't a problem at all. Staff were friendly and very informative. Route chosen was fab too.

We had a nice little trip down the river in the canoe. Advice and instructions were very clear. Good detailed map to help. The receptionist was a bit short but guess it was a busy day.

Canoeing on the Wye river really was a wonderful experience thanks to the centre's good organising the trip (we were provided with good canoes, helmets, life jackets and barrels to keep the possesions). We've chosen the trip from Symonds Yat back to Monmouth (the company is driving you to the start) and it took us almost 4 hours, including a... More
