Una experiencia fantástica además de una forma totalmente diferente y divertida de conocer Dublín. Lee fue un guía magnifico y nos enseño fantasticamente la historia de Dublín y el manejo del Kayak, también estuvo atento en todo momento de nosotros por si necesitabamos ayuda o descanso. Una experiencia 100% recomendable.
