Another great trip on the Severn This is the second time we have used Shropshire Raft tours, and once again, it didn't disappoint. We enjoyed rafting so much last year, we knew on our return trip to Bridgnorth, that we definitely wanted to do it again! Great company and great staff. We will certainly be back again. Keep doing what you're doing! 10/10

Highly recommend this experience Beautiful day on the river. Booked over the phone and all information sent over email, all really well organised. The scenery was so serene and peaceful, lots of bird spotting. We were out on the boat for about 2.5 hours. Would recommend this trip to all.

Great Day / Great Tour Had a great time paddling down the River with family. Shropshire Raft Tours were brilliant, they made the booking easy, they handled my phone call quickly and professionaly as I was seeking advice and they kept me fully informed at all times. On the day they made the whole process easy, they let us all know what to expect and then helped us on our way. Sharon and partner, clearly love what they do as their enthusiasm shines through. I felt totally happy with SRT and will be using them again

Fantastic day out Well, organized day out for the family, we are a family of four including two adults at 12-year-old and a 16-year-old and this was the perfect day out for our half term, you are given ample time to complete your journey and can take a bag with snacks with you so you can have a stop and eat whilst on the raft, the team explained everything clearly so we knew exactly which areas of the river to avoid and when and at the end of your tour, they take a group photo of your group and send it to you just to create the perfect end to the tour I will 100% recommend this to friends, family, and co-workers and would book again in the future

A relaxing way to spend the morning Even the drizzle didn't prevent us having a brilliant time on the water today. We took two boats between eight of us and enjoyed a relaxing trip that took a couple of hours of steady paddling. Along the way we saw loads of different birds and wildlife and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the river. Overall, this is a really well run outfit who collected us promptly, offered clear safety information and met us at the other end smoothly. Good value for money as well. We all had a great time, and even the teenagers accidentally enjoyed themselves!
