Client Testimonials

A BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO REMEMBER

To celebrate my 60th birthday, my daughter bought me a Whitewater Rafting Experience on the River Dee in Llangollen. This was the first time that I’d done this, but the team at Whitewater Active were excellent from start to finish and made the whole experience exciting and fun. We had a great guide - Jamie - who provided great instruction and ensured that our safety was his first priority. His second priority was to ensure that we all had a great time and this inevitably involved us getting wet! The Dee valley is beautiful so if you want something that’s genuinely exhilarating, then this is for you.

ACTIVITY SESSION FOR SCOUTS AND EXPLORERS

We brought our Scout Troop and Explorer Unit to take part in this excellent activity. The instructors were amazing, really supportive of those with special needs as well as challenging the more athletic ones. They all had a great time and the Explorers are already planning to be back very soon! Heartily recommended.

GREAT FUN WITH KNOWLEDGEABLE EXPERIENCED GUIDES

What an amazing time!!! We (myself hubby and 2 daughters 16 and 20) went Gorge Walking, it was lead by a knowledgeable experienced guide who made it a lot of fun for all. We had been Whitewater Rafting with these guys last year and enjoyed ourselves so much we had to do a different experience with them again this year. What to pick next year we will ALL BE BACK.
