Great fun with the kids but you do get wet so bring a change of clothes! Don't see so much of the city but that doesn't really matter. Great friendly guides. Well worth the visit.

Hi Shannon. Apologies for the delayed reply. There's no need to take lessons beforehand to rent our kayaks. I'd advise checking out our city river trips which will allow you explore the river and city further than the rental... More
