1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The instructors, the professionalism and the enthusiasm they all put in really made this a vacation to remember. From myself as an unfit 40 year old down to my 12 year old son we were looked after and made to feel welcome. All the activities were conducted with the highest safety standards. What a fabulous group of people who did their best to ensure my family had the best adventure ever!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Please do not hesitate to book with this company. The personal touch is there and they look after all individuals on the trip. The instructors even worked hard to get a disabled lad to the top of each rock jump on the Ardeche so he would not miss out. Please if you want an active vacation, sun, a great laugh and an experience that will bring your family together look no further than this company.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely, highly professional, expert instructors in their own fields who clearly cared about the surroundings and their activity.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

5 stars, listen, I never fill in feedback forms but this company has given my family the best vacation ever and basically we are all looking to go again. Well done everyone involved!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Traveling through the more remote and spectacular lower stages of the Gorge. The geography is fantastic and beautiful.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Go with a guided tour. You will see a lot more as they know where and what to look for (for example, there was a cave in the side of the Gorge with an underwater entrance that you just could not find unless you knew it was there). Apart from the fact that they will do a lot of the support work you and you will be safer you will just plain have more fun with people who know what they are doing and have a lot to teach you about kayaking and the Gorge.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The tour used all local services and support (they hire local kayaks rather than bringing their own in, for example).

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Definitely the highlight of our two weeks in the Ardeche. A good thing for families too as it is exciting without being too arduous for the younger or older members. Yes you do go down rapids but they are fierce ones.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Kayaking down the beautiful Ardeche gorge.....capsizing our boat and being rescued by a naked man in the naturist section of the river.....kids having a brilliant time jumping from high rocks into the river.....abseiling into a cave.....being part of a really friendly group, having drinks together in the bar.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

It's a pretty non-stop vacation - don't expect lots of free time. If you like being active and taking part in well-organised activities then it's great.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I had never been on an activity vacation before, or done much kayaking before, and just before we went I was wondering what on earth I had let myself in for. But it was amazing! My teenagers (15 and 13) had the most wonderful time and so did I. The activities were well organised and the instructors were just wonderful, can't speak highly enough of them. I have no hesitation in recommending this vacation to anyone who likes to be active and is up for a bit of an adventure. I came back feeling completely re-energised.
