We had an amazing day kayaking with Ross from Beyond Adventure. Ross was a great guide and was able to help and encourage all levels within the group. I would 100% recommend this company to everyone!

Afternoon on the Tay Kayaking with our instructor Mark. We booked a private lesson initally due to disabilities and zero experience. We were met at the centre by Ross and Mark; both of whom were lovely, everything was explained well and nothing was too much! After getting kitted up we drove down the river and got going. Mark was brilliant and put us at ease, having never been on a river in a kayak before we were initally very hesitant! Mark worked with us slowly and built up confidence and technique very quickly! Was a lovely trip around 5k down the river with beautiful scenery, perfect for beginers! Thank you for a great experience, we will definatly be back in the future!

Many thanks for a fantastic days canoeing on the river with my Scout troop. We had been looking forward to it for months and it exceeded our expectations. Mark and Moose were fantastic with the kids, giving them clear instruction and encouraging them through the tricky bits! The kids loved the sections with the short rapids, and the chance to get out the canoes for a swim in the river. We will be back for some more canoeing in a couple of years time on our next Scout Summer camp!

Thank you so much for your huge organisation, good humour and fine effort in leading our S5 group safely across some very beautiful , (if wet !), parts of central Scotland. The weather was certainly not with us, and yet despite that you helped rejig the programme expertly to fit the conditions and the group, which is highly appreciated.
 
The pupils responded very well to your encouraging style of coaching and they all grew as young people which was the central aim. We really enjoyed the experience from you Mark and the input from Alex which were both spot on. Thanks to Fred and Rod for all the logistics support and company too. A big thank you for all the thought and encouragement for the group. I think they really enjoyed and benefited from the several modes of travel and from the different environments.

Please pass on my thanks to Jason and Jon for yet another great three days instructing our Duke of Edinburgh Bronze groups. For some of our pupils it was a challenging experience and both Jason and Jon, showed flexibility, patience and super professionalism in helping the pupils through the training expedition. Top quality service, yet again.

Thanks.

Dear Jason, Mark & John,

 A huge thank you to you all for an excellent 2 day experience.  Staff and pupils all enjoyed the activities which were interesting and exciting and instructions were pitched at a good level to engage the pupils.  It was lovely to see them all try all the activities and laugh while doing so. They all said they enjoyed it and had fun.

I would happily participate in other activities with your company and will recommend you to colleagues thinking of similar trips.

Just a brief email to thank your company for an excellent week. The students had a fantastic time. We have spoken about the expedition and the thing that really stood out from the students, was the friendliness of the instructors and the way in which they taught the skills.

I appreciated the freedom they afforded the students without compromising their safety.

Both Mark and Grant are excellent ambassadors to your organization.

I’d like to thank you for a fantastic weekend on the Spey.  I returned last night very tired but buzzing today after a brilliant weekend.  

Biscuit and Mark worked so hard for the entire time ensuring we were well informed and looked after.  They really got everything just right, reading our group well and making the necessary adjustments according to our abilities.  They were so attentive I really cannot thank them enough for making my weekend so thoroughly enjoyable.

Thanks for all the ‘behind the scenes’ work too as the trip must take a bit of organising.

I am writing to express just how much the Crieff High School contingent enjoyed their activities with you over the last couple of days.  The activities were pitched at a really good level and the children (and adults!) were able to take part at whatever level they felt, which was usually with great enthusiasm.

Our staff were particularly impressed with your instructors who were entertaining, organised and extremely professional.  We can all learn a lot from the way they interacted and spoke to our young people, treating them with respect and consideration.  Any awkward moments were dealt with efficiently and each child was treated as an individual.

Lots of them were asking could we come back again for a week next time!

The whole team we're seriously impressed with the set up and the package we had including gear, food daily plan but most of all the people we were with. Biscuit and James looked after us from start to finish really well and I would recommend you to anyone that might be looking for some outdoor activities in Scotland.

Thanks so much for all your help, I'll definitely be back!

Just a note to say that my family and I all thoroughly enjoyed the canoe lesson on Sunday given by your instructor Mark French.

The lesson was great fun and informative and we found Mark to be great with our two kids and very funny.

We are already discussing the possibility of doing a 3 day canoe/camping trip.  We just need to work out when it would suit and also wondered if we can request the same instructor or if we have to go with a different one.

Anyway..thanks again, we will certainly be recommending Beyond Adventure to friends and family.
