I was a British Canoe Union (BCU) coach in the UK and I'm also a bushcraft instructor living in Hungary. My Hungarian wife is a professor in one of the Budapest Universities and her daughter and husband also help out with the tours. For us this is very much a family activity which is great for fun for us as well as you!

Dominic is very friendly and welcoming guy. He was sensitive enough to observe that the group was too slow for us and compensated by giving personal tips and shared some of his advanced knowledge.

It was a fantastic experience with Dominic. My boyfriend and I had a perfect time doing the canoe trip. We saw a great variety of wild animals like swans, water chicken, etc. For anyone who wants to know about a country not only by its city life but also its nature environment, it is a wonderful choice. The place is easy to arrive, bus and taxi are both convenient. Nice meeting you Dom. we wish you the best!

I attended the experience by myself and was the only person that day. Dominic was friendly and super knowledgable about Hungary and Budapest and of course, canoeing. It was great to chat and be on the water for the day away from the hustle and bustle of the city on the little Danube.. Dominic will take great care of you and make sure you enjoy yourself, you don't even have to row if you get tired, he can handle that too:)

This was amazing. Dominic is a helpful guide who lets you take this as seriously as you want to. He gave us some great tips and we felt that we improved a lot. However this experience is more about the people and the sites. It was incredibly enjoyable. Just be aware that it is just outside the city and you will need to think about travel (though there are lots of public travel options).
