The paddling part was great. I have been on other tours and know that there are a lot more interesting stories about the river, the city history and the architecture that could be shared. Perhaps you could also look into installing wireless speakers into the kayaks instead of blasting the narrative through a megaphone. The river has become so noisy and the megaphone is both necessary and contributes to the noise pollution. Still had a great time. Thank you.
Great guide, perfect amount of time in water and just overall wonderful!!
We chose the sunset firework tour. We had a great time and took some beautiful pictures of the city at night. The city lights were beautiful on the water. The tour was informative and fun. The only negative was we forgot to ask for our parking validation ticket and we lost out on $16.00. I wished the guide would have said something when we checked in. We were more concerned and excited about the trip and just forgot to ask. We liked their method of getting in and out of the kayak, very easy. This was a birthday present and we enjoyed it very much.
The Urban Kayaks Ultimate Fireworks Outing on August 3, 2016 was awesome! The staff were all fabulous. They provided great direction and support and made it a wonderful experience. I cannot give enough praise to every member of your team - what a well-run organization with outstanding customer service. Thanks so much!
