Definitely Recommend! Would definitely recommend this company for a leisurely raft boat trip down the river Severn. The safety instructions beforehand where clear and concise and was handy that the slip to get off the river was where you park your car!

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 :)
