I went out on a perfect afternoon and had a really great time. Great views, lovely group and an awesome guide! Definitely one of the highlights of the trip for me, obviously very different to the typical city tours you'd otherwise go on.

Tour guide was excellent! Very chilled and relaxed experience especially for those such as myself that have absolutely no experience in kayaking. You get plenty for your money and some excellent views of the city.
