The staff was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. They gave thorough instructions on land and in the kayak. The staff stayed with us the entire time and made sure everyone was safe. They information that was told about the ghosts and gangsters was very interesting. I am from the Chicago area and it is always fascinating to learn about our beautiful city.
