This Kayak Tour was a lot...

This Kayak Tour was a lot of fun. Our tour guide was very energetic, full of life, and very much enjoyed giving us some history of Napa. He made it very interesting and had us laughing at the same time. Would recommend this tour if you're in Napa.

To begin, I am not someone that writes reviews often, but I felt it was necessary for this wonderful tour. Justin our tour guide was funny and engaging. He works hard to learn each tourists name and continually addresses the group as though we were his long lost friends. Justin provided unique stories about downtown Napa that kept his audience enthralled. For those wondering, the kayaking was not strenuous at all. Thank you Justin for a great tour!

Awesome!

Real stories and the peace and quiet. Some of the stories told by Justin, the leader was captivating. Although, I would recommend really going into and end with high lights which is the wine, how Napa put a mark in the word with its wine.

Getting to have individual kayaks for the entire family so we don’t have to argue about who’s doing most of the paddling.

A must try it was great!

Excellent tour! Justin was fantastic working with everyone from experienced kayakers to newbies like me. I was never made to feel like I was holding up the tour and ge told the most unique facts that you won’t hear about Napa anywhere else. The first half of the tour (1 hour) is guided and the second half is free time to enjoy the remaining parts of the river. This did not disappoint and was a great way to spend some time doing something other than wine tastings. Great for singles, families, couples, friends really anyone!

Very disappointed

Definitely not for beginners. We were left to fend for ourselves. No instruction or assistance at all. We didn't get to hear any of the tours because they were going so fast we couldn't keep up. The water was choppy and we were paddling upstream too so that made it even more challenging. Once we got the hang of it and got into calmer water it was easier but then we were left with " free time" and the tour guide went back to the doc. Definitely not worth $118.00. We were very disappointed.
