What people are saying about Napa

Kayaking on the Napa River was great! Two hours was enough time to get an hour of history and then have an hour on our own to explore. We saw some wildlife and got a behind the scenes review of Napa, which was fun and interesting!

Absolutely fabulous & Justin & Janet were wonderful. So glad we were able to take this kayaking experience. It was just the two we f on a, and time well spent on the river and it’s history. I would recommend this to all!

A really fun experience! Our tour group was small which was nice and we got to learn a bit more about Napa in a different way.

Justin was a wealth of knowledge! We had a lot of fun!
