Had a great day out celebrating a birthday with 16 of us all different ages and abilities. It was peaceful and tranquil along the river and as beautiful as... More

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

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.
