The experience was brilliant and the guides were helpful and cheerful. The scenery is awesome. Wet shoes are good to have, however if you dont, you can get away with using sandals as well. The return journey to the starting point is only for the driver, but it is easy to get back. If unsure the guides are happy to put the address into your navigation. Highly recommended.

If this is your first kayaking experience this will be perfect! The hosts were great and friendly. Just one small note - it felt a tiny bit rushed. Would have been nice to have a slightly longer break, then we could have had time to swim in the river. Apart from that, 5 ⭐️

Very fun day. A great level for beginners and our children (aged 7 and 10) loved the rapids. If you are going with children be prepared for the fact it is hard work as the children didn’t help much! Most boats have 2 adults, so given I had just me and a 7 year old dead weight I was tired by the end! Worth it though!
