We were blessed with a perfect day - glassy water, reasonable 60+ weather, sunshine, not a cloud in the deep blue sky. Six of us enjoyed listening to Justin tell of the pre-winery days of Napa and the history of the rejuvenation of the Napa River. After the tour we took off for an hour plus slowly paddling up river enjoying the quiet, watching the birds and other animals basking in the sun and going about their business. Such a nice change from being indoors. Easy to get to and Lily and Justin were great hosts. Definitely a great thing to do if you are in the area no matter what time of year.

I enjoyed our trip to Napa. I took my two girls kayaking. We are definitely beginners at it; this was perfect. The first hour we float down the river and listen to the history of Napa from our guide. Then the next hour he allowed us to kayak on our own around the river. It was beautiful and peaceful. All of us enjoyed it.

My husband and I had a fantastic time on this tour. It was our first time visiting Napa, and this was an active experience that provided interesting history we didn’t know. We would definitely go again. The tour guide Justin was so knowledgeable and great!

My hubby and I were first time kayakers and we had a fantastic time. Justin was an excellent tour guide. He tells the most interesting local historical lore that you won’t hear anywhere else. The most important thing is that whether your are experienced or a new year like me, you will enjoy this. The second hour of the tour was just exploring the river on your own.

My family had a very good experience. They gave a history tour of Napa Valley while kayaking. My son absolutely loved it and wants a kayak of his own now. Unfortunately we weren't given too many pointers before we started on how to actually use a kayak if we'd never been on one. I only gave 4 stars because of this and the fact that they should have warned people that some sunblock would be extremely helpful. I realize this is a personal responsibility, but a friendly reminder would have made all the difference. Everyone in my family got burned to some degree.

The guide Justin really made the tour. His stories were great snd we learned a lot about the history of Napa. The Napa River is beautiful and we got some free time just to float around and explore on our own. If you want some fun with some exercise, you gotta do this tour.

Justin is passionate about the history and stories of Napa. It was a hot day, so we appreciated no vigorous paddling required. We were able to use the entire rental time and kayak more on our own after the tour. The river is calm and no real kayak experience is required. A fun experience overall!

Justin was a great guide/owner who joyfully shared Napa's historical scuttlebutt. His pride of this area, where he was born and raised, really adds to the natural beautiful of the area. The equipment is in good shape. Very enjoyable 2 hours.

If I could give a zero star review, I would. I made my reservation for a two hour rental for the next day easily, so I will give them that. However, I am in the consulting business so my work hours are very unpredictable. I had to cancel my reservation. I emailed and called them multiple times and they never got back to me. DO NOT KAYAK WITH THIS COMPANY. I was charged even though I never took the rental and there were 9 more spots available, so it's not like I was holding up someone else's spot.

This seems unlikely. We are very flexible with refunds. There’s a good chance we fully refunded you on our end yet it wasn’t refunded through Viator. That’s why we inform customers to also contact Viator for full refund.
