Lazy, wonderful summer spent with colleagues on the grand river. Lovely for floating and getting some arm work in. By no means difficult. Enjoy with friends!

Great solo tour of the Grand River from Paris to Brantford. 3 hour tour on rented inflatable paddleboard. So many rocks in the Grand River; I'm so glad I didn't take mine. For $75, I was picked up at the Syl Apps Center in downtown Paris and dropped off below the dam. 3 quiet hours on the beautiful Grand River.... More

We just returned from the Grand River and I wanted to say a big thank you to Garth for his hospitality and for the great day! Myself and my boyfriend came from Toronto to do the Cayuga kayak trip - and we really enjoyed it. The Grand River is just beautiful. Garth was great, he met us right on time,... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable afternoon gently kayaking down the Grand River. It was an extremely relaxing experience, particularly as we decided to do a beginners paddle and were able to go out without a guide, just the two of us. The river is beautiful and very peaceful, with herons, ospreys, and other wildlife. The service provided... More

Hello Ibraheem As much as I appreciate a Five Star review... We did not earn this one you gave. You posted your Trip Advisor review on the wrong company. You posted it on the Grand River Rafting site in Canada when it should probably be for a river in Bali. See below We booked from our hotel directly ... it... More

It was very nice day tubing on the river. Originally meant to book at another outfitter (near Kitchener) but they were full. Glad we discovered this one. The 'turbo' tubes were excellent and very sturdy. They needed to be sturdy as there were times you scraped bottom. The day was hot but being on the river made the temperature pleasant.... More

We were a party of 9 people ranging from 5 years old to 41 who booked the turbo tubes. Sometimes it is hard to find an activity that all ages of a group that size will enjoy but our whole party had a good time, even the teenagers. Communication from the owners was nice and fast, response times to emails... More

We (2 couples) thought the tubing looked interesting and we were looking for a good way to spend a warm summer's end day. It was a very relaxing but also had an exercise component to it. If you really aren't in a hurry not much paddling is needed but then be prepared to spend close to the whole 6 hours... More
