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.

Perfect way to enjoy seeing the Pont du Gard. River is an easy float/minimal paddling required. Lots of places to stop and have lunch (they give you a bucket to keep your food, towels, etc. dry) or to jump of low cliffs and swim. Staff speaks English. Parking is free and on-site. If you plan to lunch or swim, plan for 4h pickup.

Fun trip. We had two couples with paddling experience and we enjoyed it all...including the little bit of quick water. We would recommend allowing a bit of extra time for stopping to see the Pont du Gard, swimming and/or picnicking along the way.

Wonderful, relaxing, they were able to give us good directions and were prompt in picking us up. They gave us containers to put our stuff in so our stuff wouldn’t get wet. Definitely bring a picnic! You can stop partway through and have a lovely picnic on the bank of the river.

We had a fab time on the river. We are a family of 4 with 2 young children (6 & 9) and were advised by the staff that we needed 2 canoes. We quickly discovered that this was due to weight as the river is so shallow in places that you are skimming the stones. We did have to get out and push at some points, my flip flops did survive but better footwear would probably be advisable.

We were asked what time we wanted to get the minibus back, we gave ourselves just over 2 and half hours but with a lovely stop off for lunch on some rocks we then found we were racing to get to the pick up point on time so you could easily spend longer.

The view of the Pont du Gard is just amazing

Would highly recommend

We chose to go with this operator for our kayaking trip down the river Gardon to Pont du Gard. They have their own private parking. Quick instructions, and we were off by 9am, and pretty much had the river to ourselves. The rapids need some effort to navigate (a heads up would've been good!), got wedged into the rock in the very first set of rapids and got sweaty and wet dislodging it. We chose the 8km beginner's circuit, and were picked up at a beach about 20 mins after Pont du Gard and returned to base. Efficient and well organised.

Booked ahead and the owner kept me updated beforehand. Private car park. Quick safety run through and then onto the river. Amazing time. Knew our stop off time and where it was. Friendly staff ready to collect us and a quick drive back to base.
Reasonable price for a fantastic day.

Choosing a Monday morning 9.00 start was a great idea, as they are super busy over weekends and it’s good to paddle down in the quiet.
Your going down river which saves a lot of energy and can go easy or speed up depending how you feel.
Many birds (and noisy frogs) at some sections, with a few speedy shallow rapids to get you to the edge of your comfort zone.
Highlight were the birds and the journey under the Pont du Gard.
If your in the area it’s a must do.
Great service as you also get a shuttle bus back to start.
Waterproof box on the kayak to hold your possessions takes away a bit of stress.

I knew the three teenagers would not have the same interest as I in the amazing architecture of the aquaeduct and would hate to visit a museum, so instead I opted for a canoeing trip which would be a fun activity for them but reward me with the beautiful view of the Pont du Gard at the end of the canoe ride. The two 13-year-olds went into one canoe, I went into another canoe with my 70-year-old mother and a 10-year-old. While we were struggling a bit and had to keep up, the teenagers went along the river effortlessly. It was mostly shallow and we were all equipped with the mandatory life vests. My French is very limited so I did not understand why they asked me which bus (at what time) I wanted to book to take us back to the car park. Since they told us the trip would take 2 hours we booked the one leaving in 2 hours. I would do it differently if I had to do it again! There are numerous opportunities to go onto the shore along the river and have a nice picnic along the shore or take a break to have a swim. Some people were even fishing in the river. If I had known I would have added at least two more hours to the trip. Also be prepared to get wet and to jump into the water to pull the canoe along the spots that are too shallow. We left our change of clothes in the car due to our inexperience, so we had to ride the bus back in our wet clothes, even though the ride was short. They provide you with a water tight barrell to put in your dry change of clothes or anything else that needs to stay dry. I wish their website had informed me of the possibility to take breaks on the shore, everything else went really well though. They offer other canoeing destinations as well. We made online reservations, but I think we might have also gotten tickets on site, which would have allowed us greater flexibility since we hardly made it on time due to heavy traffic.

A very great and cool place to spend a day with friends and family,on winter there are less activity but good for promonade,it very interesting during hot summer, for canoeing,swimming or rather spend a day along the banks of the rover,the water is cold and refreshing but very agreeable when the sun is hot at 30*. Its just like an ordinary beach over the hot river pebbles.Have fun!
