Paddling guides and tours can be really useful for both beginners and experienced paddlers. For beginners it's a great way to try paddling before you spend a lot of money on equipment. For experienced paddlers, guides and tours can literally save your life. If you are in unfamiliar water, like when you're on vacation (on holiday for some of our European friends), rip tides and tidal races can be more than some paddlers can handle without the aide of experienced local talent.
