star rating  Took an hour and a half longer than expected. Not very exciting. 16/18 year olds, a bit bored. Nice to try once.

star rating  Another fun half day canoeing from Fownhope to Hoarwithy. Will and Andy are very safety conscious and make sure everyone’s needs are taken care of. Highly recommend.

Absolutely stunning canoe from Tresseck Campsite to Ross. Andy and Will are fabulous and run a very tight ship! Stunning scenery …my arms hurt today but it was worth it- and I didn’t fall in as I did last time 😂😂😂😂

Professional, accommodating and helpful from the booking through the excellent pre-paddle briefing at Lucksalll to the pick-up and return from Hoarwithy. The wonderful Wye speaks for itself - stunning scenery, banks covered in flowers and willows with kingfishers, egrets, herons and plenty more birdllife

Super trip. The team helped us feel prepared for all points of the trip. We (as first timers) were able to navigate the tiny rapids and the challenges of the shallower than normal water. Even had chance to swim just up stream from the fisherman's lodge (I think) (and this was allowed haha)! Spectacular Views. Toilets at the start and end of our trip too.

I've been canoeing on the Wye with several companies and this is by far the best. Easy to book, good directions to launch point, excellent map of the river with navigation points, very clear briefing, and smooth transport.

Had a great morning’s canoe trip. Parked at Hoarwithy, then we were bused up to Lucksall, kitted out with life jackets, waterproof barrel, map etc, given an excellent briefing by very friendly and knowledgable staff, and off we went. It was a gentle three hours paddle, beautiful scenery, utter tranquillity, lots of birds including a kingfisher and little egret. Water level pretty low, but we only grounded once! Highly recommended. Do it!!

Had an excellent experience canoeing from Luxall to Hoarwithy. Andy and the team were all very friendly and worked around our changing requests due to the weather! Plus it's always nicer to be able to do a stretch of a river without having to turn around half way or go against the current. Would thoroughly recommend if you are looking for a trip on the Wye. We will definitely be coming back again. Also, they have a brilliant mascot in the form of a water loving dog called Roo!
