What a brilliant day out, Mark was friendly, fun but professional and all the equipment was in great shape and easy to use. Stunning river and great way to see some of Kent. Yalding is lovely for a spot of lunch too

Great facility, stable and easy to use canoes, good briefing with safety paramount, lovely scenery, good distance and ability to challenge yourself with speed! Nice pint at the end as well. Want to come back and do the Tonbridge to Yalding stretch!
