Booking was easy. Capn' Dave was prompt and most accomodating. He gave us a great tour of the rivers and riverside communities. Just enough info about history, residents and real estate. Lots of stunning views and beautiful scenery. Kudos all around.

Sure Steve. We will go out if only light drizzle as we have a covered top and sides to let down. But in case of bad weather we will refund money.
