We had a brilliant morning kayaking on Ullswater. Leigh made sure we were comfortable and well kitted out with essential gear. Highly recommend booking with Leigh who was really great company and sent us some lovely photos too.

Enjoyed a fantastic few hours kayaking on Ullswater, with my very good friend, and with Leigh who is Tall Bloke Adventures. We enjoyed every minute of this experience. Leigh was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and a great all round Tall Bloke.

Leigh was super easy to understand and made you feel safe and relaxed whilst having fun on the water, and taking in the views. We kayaked on Ullswater and the landscape was breathtaking. Would highly recommend.

As complete novices Leigh was great, he explained everything and was amazingly patient whilst we got to grips with steering. The games he got us playing were a great way to get to grips with things. Leigh's warmth, knowledge and experience really made this something special.

It was our first time Kayaking, but Leigh explained everything clearly and put us at ease. We had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. We will definitely be Kayaking again in the future hopefully at beautiful Lake Ullswater. The views were amazing.
