Beginning to the end it was a fun experience with two great guides and fun people on the tour as well! Highly recommended if you want to get off the beaten path!


The downtown portion AKA the entire reason to go on the Kayak was shut down so we went on alternate route under sewage tanks that was basically dirty fecal water covered with trash, I understand the city being closed off but not being offered the option for a refund beforehand was severely disappointing because there is no way I would pay $220 for my family to paddle a fecal trash creek.


Everyone is very friendly and the tour among the buildings is really good. You can take good photos, make good videos, enjoy a nice kayak tour, recommended.


Amazing guided tour, great guide with Josh, calm waters on Saturday and great downtown architecture! Loved the pace and views! Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


This was an awesome experience. The guys were super helpful and accommodating to us and our kids. This was a laid back and great outdoor adventure for a family. You could go as quickly as you wanted or just lay back and enjoy nature. We will definitely do this again. Don’t hesitate go ahead and book this on your next trip to Nashville.


Cool way to see the city, plus birds and turtles! Would be nice if the guide had had more things to say about what we were seeing.


Excellent trip. We were greeted by the team and given an induction on Kayaking and safety guidance for the river. All safety equipment was provided, including waterproof cases for our mobile phones. The kayaking is great and suitable for all levels including anyone who has never done this before. The river has a lovely current that will do most of the hard work for you. The kayaks are stable and comfortable and you can effectively float down the river if you wish, with a little steering required. Great fun and highly recommended. Thanks to the team for a great trip!


We had the nicest tour guides and wonderful views. Dan, Christy and Kegan were so sweet and full of southern charm. Would definitely recommend


The staff was super friendly and the kayaking was relaxing. It was a fun and simple way to enjoy Nashville.


Everything was PERFECT! Definitely a must do while visiting Nashville. Our tour guide Josh was super helpful and even made sure we had some great pictures!
