Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went on the rowing experience this morning and it was fantastic. Omar was very professional and the event was fun and expertly organised. My Partner has wanted to try rowing for ages and it was a great birthday treat for him. The pace of the event was perfect and the rowing on the river was wonderful - thanks Omar!

I had no idea how to try rowing in Cambridge until I saw the banner for CambridGE rowing. Beginner rowing with Omar was a fantastic experience, and I can’t wait to go back. He is an excellent and fun teacher who made rowing accessible. I can’t believe how quickly he got us moving well on the water. I highly recommend this.

It was an incredible first experience I had in rowing, completely new for me, but absolutely brilliant. We were lucky to have such a talented and professional rowing instructor. Thank you Omar for that. It was really accurate in theory to understand the basics and quite practical, so we could go on water from the very first session. It was challenging to work as a team, but we had clear instructions what to do, so all went really well. The only issue is, that I would love to continue having rowing experience in future. Really engaging! I can recommend it all my friends and people who want to try something really local in Cambridge.

I organised this event as a corporate team-building activity for a group of senior executives. The Cambridge Rowing Experience team provided outstanding service, guiding us through the proper rowing techniques with patience.

No prior rowing experience is necessary to participate in the activity. We all had a delightful time and extend our deepest appreciation to Omar and the team for making our experience both enjoyable and enlightening.

Last week, had a memorable first experience in a long time with rowing over the beautiful Cam🌊. I have never been that close to the river and always been little afraid. But Omar was superb with his guidance, instructing all of us with patience
and providing an amazing taster session.

We started with absolute rowing basics in the gym, with gradually moving to final experience. Post gym, we moved to boat garage, then understanding the tidbits of balancing, moving & rotating the boat. After getting into the river, we gradually started to get hold of the subtle art of balancing and moving boat altogether across the river. Omar was kind enough to keep all of us motivated and getting us ready for the final thrilling experience when everyone got into perfect team sync. And, woohoo, kudos to all of us, we managed to kept the boat upright through the whole experience.

I'd definitely recommend anyone getting started on rowing or just want to experience the sport with guidance. I am sure, you will enjoy every bit and have it in your memory for a long time.

Incredible rowing experience in the City of Cambridge Rowing boat club. The entire day was nothing short of amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

The team's enthusiasm and professionalism were evident from the moment I registered for the Rowing Taster Day. Special thanks to Omar for organizing such a fantastic event and ensuring everything ran smoothly.
The rowing itself was an exhilarating experience, and the picturesque surroundings of Cambridge made it even more memorable. The cox was patient, knowledgeable, and made the entire process enjoyable for everyone
The variety of sessions available ensures that individuals of all levels can continue to engage and improve their skills.
I am particularly excited about the prospect of participating in the group erg sessions and the indoor rowing tank. The detailed information provided about these sessions, including timings, locations, and costs, is incredibly helpful.

Thank you once again for a fantastic day, and I look forward to seeing you all in a boat again soon!

Amazing experience, friendly and well-trained staff. Proper briefing is given before entering the water. A must-to-do thing if visiting Cambridge.
