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.

My first time since 50 years ago and I enjoyed it! Ed.was a good teacher and our small group of 3 learnt the basic skills of kayaking safely. A beautiful part of Kent on the River Stour. I'll be back soon!

Absolutely brilliant camp, it was first time for my 8 yr old boy he loved the experience and was professionally managed. The group leaders were fun and helped kids to stay safe while having all the crazy fun.

A lovely activity in Summer. We travelled as a family of 4, 2 adults, a toddler (2) & a baby (12 weeks old). All of us were supplied with buoyancy aids, and we felt safe cruising along the calm river with just one adult able to paddle, and the toddler paddling in the opposite direction throughout!

Really straightforward and easy to find in lovely surroundings.

Relaxing, gently challenging and fun afternoon for a hen party. We saw so much wildlife and had a great time on the multi craft activity travelling from Fordwich to Grove Ferry. Our guides couldn't have made it a better experience - funny, knowledge, calm and supportive when we needed help! Thanks for a great afternoon. We'll be back!

Very friendly, easy to hire with very good safety advice. Was an absolute fab little trip out for an hour. Decent waterproof bag provided for keys wallets and phones. Think £26 for 1 dad and 2 big kids value for money. Highly rate x and will try again from grove ferry end.

Efficient check-in and great that you get taken back to your start point so you can do double the distance for the same time. Kayak and paddles were of good quality. Staff all helpful and friendly. Lovely part of the river to paddle. Saw loads of wildlife.

We had a wonderful day at canoe wild, the staff are very polite and professional. Carefully instructed us on safety on the river.After our cruise down the river in a family canoe we finished off the day at the George and Dragon for the best roast dinner. It was the best weather with a great choice of drinks. We then decided to take a nice long walk along the River which was the perfect end to the day. We will definitely be back for another trip down the river as a family.

We have been along the river with Canoe Wild on a good few occasions now since moving close by and cannot express enough how stunning and fun it is. The team are always so accommodating and always ensure your safety is considered by reminding us how to control our chosen vessel and what to do in any given situation.
I am always in awe of the scenery and have yet to have the same journey twice, seeing and hearing different wildlife and experiencing the difference the seasons bring. There’s also something about being in the water that offers a different perspective from what you would get from walking along the bank.
If you haven’t been… WHY?! You will not be disappointed!
