This was really fun. I did it with my friend who did not feel that comfortable on the water but the instructor was really good, patient and helpful. He also made it safe and was knowledgeble of the area and it's history. A glass of champagne was just like icing on the cake. Very delicious! MAde my friend a bit more confident ont he water :) I want to try one in Windsor now.
