“Fab family adventure day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We really enjoyed our family activity day...with a nervous 11 year old, a go for anything 14 year old and 2 parents who don’t do too much wild activities normally the day went perfectly, everyone got to do as much as they were comfortable with (my son missed some of the leaps into pools in the george scramble, and their dad didn’t stand in his kayak). Cant recommend it enough-very memorable.

Thanks for taking the time to review your session with us. Family Days are all about getting something for everyone to enjoy so I'm please that we managed that.

People usually grow in confidence but we're always careful to encourage and not push people to challenge themselves. It's great to see people having fun while taking on something new.

Best wishes,

Adam

“3rd successful and fun trip with Joint adventures.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Such a fab and fun team, each time I have friends coming to stay or get a group of us together I always take them gorge scrambling with Joint adventures, it's a little cheeky but but for all ages and I feel very good value for money.

“Fabulous time. Thrills and spills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

The gorge scramble up Church Beck was excellent. Visited with my two kids, 14 and 17, and we all loved the adventure as it became steadily more challenging. You won't feel pressured into things you don't want to try, but you will want to challenge yourself, and when you make those big jumps wow does it feel good.

“Fun time on Coniston water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I had never kayaked before, but as soon as we were on the water we LOVED it! We couldn't believe the wonderful views. Our camera couldn't capture the beauty.

We kayaked for almost 4 hours and we could have gone longer. We felt like it was definitely worth the money and we would love to return again someday.

Hi Steve

I'm please you had such an enjoyable time on Coniston Water. Kayaking and canoeing are great for seeing the lakes and hills from a different view and even if you're not experienced in a boat you can usually paddle our kayaks in a straight line and go on a journey gently down the lake. Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

Best wishes,
Adam
