We had beautiful weather on Bayou St John! Though it was chilly and a tad bit windy kayaking was easy for this 50+ first timer! My kids (ages 26-31) were avid kayakers so it wasn't a challenge for them at all. Sara was super helpful with directions, parking, set-up etc! Sonny was our tour guide and was soooo knowledgeable about my favorite part of New Orleans - Bayou St John/City Park/Faubourg St John areas. As a native New Orleanian, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sonny's history lesson. Thanks for a great day! My other out of town adult children can't wait to visit and take the tour!

I enjoyed the tour, but I would have liked to have heard a little more history about New Orleans and the areas we were paddling by.
