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.

Absolutely perfect from start to finish. Beautiful handmade canoes, a great guy to lead the trip; super relaxed and friendly. We loved every minute. The stars were incredible and the setting, with the firepit and sweet treats made it a night to remember!

Our experience was fantastic! We went paddle boarding, both of us were first timers, and I was a bit nervous but Justin was an excellent coach, taught us what we needed to know and got my confidence up enough to help me stand up too! We went so much further into the lake than I had ever thought possible before starting the session. My partner was more confident than me and Justin taught him some extra skills and set him some fun challenges to do too. We were blessed with fantastic weather, and the views were gorgeous, what a wonderful way to see Derwent Water. We would 100% recommend booking with Mountain Memories, it was easy to coordinate the day and time that suited our timetable via email and we now know that there a lot of other activities available that we would definitely book with Mountain Memories for the next time we’re in the area!

Justin took us climbing and canyoning. A family of four with two teenage boys, we were a small group and benefitted from this. He tailored the activities to our abilities and kept it fun. We all really enjoyed both activities due to his engaging personality. Highly and unreservedly recommended.

We’ve tried canoeing for the first time in Derwentwater with Justin! It was an amazing experience really! We were 4 friends who have never tried it before but Justin explained what to do and what not to do in a very basic way so it wasn’t hard to grasp things quickly. Weather was just a bit cloudy and windy at first but we rode on the side of the lake so we were not affected by the wind gust. He connected two canoes two each other at first for us to have an easier start. We’ve separated them after a while and he made sure we don’t tip over
Scenery was spectacular, I was worried about taking pictures on the boat but Justin took care of that thankfully. We saw a very beautiful, full, double rainbow. Pictures came out great even though he made us believe he’s no good at taking them 😅
We had multiple stops for snacks and just to appreciate the beautiful scenery. We have also learned about the history of the place and local gems. Justin was a great company with many interesting stories 😄 We even went over some waves and it was so fun. Time went over so quickly even though we were together for a good 3.5 hours~ So grateful for giving us an opportunity to experience all of this. Totally recommend it for friend groups like us and families with kids!!

Fantastic day with Justin, Ghyl Scrambling and sunset kayak, absolutely loved it!! Great adventure for our seven year old and challenging for us adults, but totally safe and great guidance through everything.

We were travelling down the country and wanted to break up the driving with a bit of fun, we booked Justin very last minute, and he fitted us in for an afternoon of Ghyll Scrambling with Canyon exploring also.

It was awesome, we had such a good time, Justin is super welcoming, very easy to get on with, and fills you with confidence

We scrambled through the river, with Justin explaining very clearly every step of the way, where to put your feet, which bits to look out for and just making you feel safe and confident in what you are doing.

We then moved onto the canyoning, using ropes and harnesses to manoeuvre our way down bigger slopes and faster water.
Again Justin was great, made us feel really comfortable with what we are doing and in control.

I really can’t recommend Mountain Memories enough, we had a brilliant day

I would say you need to be of half decent fitness, and stable on your feet, there is a lot of moving around and slippery bits, you do splash into water and jump of ledges etc

We had a great time with Mountain Memories. We took the half day canoeing and bushcraft experience trip. Justin tailored the trip perfectly to keep our two girls (4 and 7) entertained whilst also keeping interest for me and my wife. He was relaxed, friendly, informative and professional, with a good mix of canoeing on the lake and learning bushcraft skills. Justin knows how to respond to the moment outdoors doors, savouring nice weather, not rushing us and expanding our understanding of the outdoors. 10/10. Highly recommended.

Justin was amazing! From making sure we had all the kit we needed to have to best experience to making sure we laughed start to finish. He was encouraging and allowed us to have to best experience while being completely safe.
We took part in ghyll scramble followed by the canyoning. Justin made sure we were warm and kept moving and completed the challenge.
Justin took lots of amazing photos and sent them over to which was going above and beyond in my eyes!

LOVED EVERY MINUTE AND WILL BE USING THE COMPANY AGAIN.

We had a blissful evening in Justin's beautiful handmade canoes paddling on Derwentwater as the sun was setting. It was a fantastic experience, we saw Heron and even spotted a Kingfisher!
A fantastic time from start to finish.
Booking and payment straightforward.

As a surprise for our two teenage sons we booked them the Ghyll scrambling. They absolutely loved it. Justin is so patient, informative and great instructor/company. Definitely the highlight of our sons holiday. Cannot rate highly enough and would definitely use again if we ever come back to the Lake District. Thank you Justin for making wonderful memories.
