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.

Sara was great. She was patient with the four kids we had on our adventure and also very knowledgeable about the history of the area. We will do this again!
