We love our activities but don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our families say…

  • ‘Fantastic family paddleboarding experience.’ – Sarah, August 2021.
  • ‘If you are thinking of booking a family trip or any trip with Alexander Adventures, I highly recommend’ – Megan, November 2021.
  • ‘We attended a family canoeing session. It was so much fun and a bit of a challenge. The instructor was really great and very knowledgeable. We will be booking with Alexander Adventures again in the future.’ – Lilly, November 2020.
  • ‘I booked a river kayaking session for myself and my children. We had a little experience but not much and the instructor was very supportive. He gave us space to learn in our own time but also alert enough to see if we needed advice. We had a fantastic time on a peaceful part of the river and would definitely go again.’ – Amanda, September 2020.
