I ordered a gift voucher with The Canoe Man on 13th December. The voucher was for a Christmas present but despite emails and phone calls I have recieved nothing. I am extremely disappointed and angry and will be asking for a refund.

We went on the ‘Swallows and Amazons’ day trip. Both adults and kids (4 & 9) loved it. Getting to Canoe down the river, have a go at archery and fire making in the woods with lovely people running the whole event. Highly recommended
