4. What do attendees say after your tours?
Our clients love our tours and we have great reviews on TripAdvisor. Here’s one to share with you:

“…..No experience is needed – we all sat in the Kayaks on the grass so the footrests could be adjusted and our life vests checked and some basic paddle instructions. Then we helped each other to carry the kayaks a short distance to the canal. The team leader helps you enter the kayak, not too tricky but a highly amusing manoeuver. Then it’s off at a very gentle pace past the cages of London zoo heading towards Camden lock, passing the backs of some very expensive properties. It was a pleasure to see so much use the canal tow path was put to with walkers, joggers, and cyclists with plenty of activity on the water as well. Once at Camden we turned round and made our way back. At no time did we feel unsafe and being a small group made chatting easy. Getting out of the kayaks was more fun than getting in but no-one got wet. The weather was great which enhanced the experience. All in all as a couple of 64 year olds we really enjoyed it. TIP: a 5 minute walk into Regents park you come to THE HUB where you can change and store in secure lockers your clothes etc. It’s free to use and means if you got really wet you can have a shower and change into dry clothes – very useful.”
