Great company, not so great canal

The instructor was very lovely and we had a lovely time on the canal. However, I wonder which century we are still in. The canal was filthy and as we proceeded towards Camden town it just got worse. There is a point where under a bridge there is a great collection of sewerage waste with loads of glass bottles and cans floating around. The instructor took us under the bridge and had it been clean I would have loved the adventure in the dark. However I'm very disappointed that I had to see and smell what I saw and smelt! Would recommend London Kayak Tours for its own merits. Lovely company. However No One answers their phone. They ask you to leave a message but the beep doesnt come before a full five minutes or so. Please change that and provide an active contact for the day out.

- West London

This was a great way to spend an afternoon - perfect for someone with limited kayaking experience. The focus on playing games to improve our confidence in the water was very motivating.
