You might think “well, they would recommend a guide”, but here at Experience Ardèche we firmly believe that having a guided river trip turns a journey through the Ardèche gorge into an experience you’ll remember. The guide is included as standard in our week long River Package holidays and our Gorge Getaway short breaks. With river trips only you have the option to include the guide or not.
For clients with children and those with limited experience, we always recommend having a guided river trip. Otherwise you may become one of the rent-a-crash brigade who just hire boats with no further advice, instruction or assistance.

We hope this highlights some of the benefits there are to having a guided river trip. We really want you to get the most out of your time in the gorge and in our experience having a guide makes all the difference. Remember, the guide is there for you! They will help to make it a river trip to remember in all the good ways.
This is a good video showing how quickly things can go wrong and why its a good idea to have a guide if you have limited experience. None of these people had a guide with them and are the people we lovingly refer to as ‘rent-a-crash’.
p.s. no one was seriously harmed during this clip.
