I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SHROPSHIRE RAFT TOURS I would highly recommend Shropshire Raft Tours. We've been using this place for several years now and never been disappointed. Team is always very well organised and helpful. Everything is well explained during the briefing. River is very calm, and the route take around 3-4 hours. Great place for a day out with friends, family or older kids. Definitely will be back AGAIN! 👍

Fantastic rafting trip Had a fantastic day today rafting down the River Severn. Shropshire raft tours were fantastic, very informative and helpful. We will definitely be using them again for rafting or canoeing. The best part was they were very welcoming to our little dog so the whole family had a great day 😊 Would definitely recommend!!

Oarsome afternoon on the river! We had a wonderful 3 hours (or so) meandering down the river in our canoe. So peaceful and relaxing - loads of wildlife and scenery to enjoy. Everyone is very helpful and friendly and excellent equipment. You should give it a go!

Raft Hire From the start the instructions of meeting and how the booking works was very clear. Very convenient having a pick up point and finishing back at the carpark! We were lucky enough to be offered an extra raft! We were also lucky enough to have picked a sunny day, the views were amazing, we all really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you :)

Fantastic trip down the river. I booked a trip on the river for my husbands 50th birthday I was very nervous with it being my first time. After meeting the staff I was put at ease and really enjoyed the experience and we will definitely be returning very soon. The weather was overcast and quite windy but don't let that put you off it was still very enjoyable 🙂

October Rafting Group From my first contact with Sharon the whole experience was fantastic. We were a group of 6 friends who hired 2 rafts out of season and Sharon couldn’t be more accommodating. We were due to go out as self hire on the Sunday but due to the very very high water levels and fast moving water Sharon called and kindly offered us Nigel as a guide. He was brilliant. His many stories kept us all amused on the trip down the river. Not alot of paddling was needed which was very welcome and the whole group really enjoyed there experience. We will be back again in the Summer months.

Great experience provided by a great company/couple. Communication before our trip was great - really clear and helpful. We were given such a comprehensive Safety Talk before embarking on our raft ride which helped us to know what was coming up and what to do. We were SO lucky with the weather - lovely gentle trip down the river seeing things from a very different pace and perspective. Greeted at the end of our trip as explained. Such a lovely day - we would thoroughly recommend Shropshire Raft Tours as a professional and competent company but, also, as a friendly and great couple too. Thank you.
