We rented 2 stand up paddle boards and a tube for our 6 year old with a kayak paddle for him. We all had such a wonderful time. Our water boards just went with the flow of the river, but we could also actively paddle and try standing up during the faster parts of the river to keep it interesting.... More

Being new to rafting, we opted for the Cayuga Guided Tour rental. The check in was easy to find and they were friendly, quick and accommodating. We walked the block and a half to the dam area where we were efficiently taken care of. Our guide for the day, a great fellow named Nick, took us through the necessary lessons... More

I had the opportunity to tube down the grand river with my work colleagues this summer. What an amazing experience! Not only was it fun & relaxing to drift down stream with our staff, but it was filled breathtaking views of the grand river valley! The staff at Grand River Rafting was very personable, helpful and safety was their number... More

I had a guest from Europe that was looking to experience something outdoors and typically Canadian. Given that we don't own a cottage I was more limited in my choices. This was the perfect activity. We went canoeing on the Grand (Cayuga trail) and it was quite fun. I was alone with 2 teen girls and I managed but a... More

It was the first time we had tried a canoe experience like this, and we had a GREAT time! There was a bit of a wait to check in when we arrived to pay. They were very busy. The gentleman who checked us in was the owner, and was friendly, and knowledgeable. After going through the map/course with us, we... More

Was a bit worried - had never kayaked before but our guide / teacher Laurel was excellent - she patiently showed us the ropes, answered all of our questions and took us on the most amazing adventure down the Grand River - thanks so much - I will be back

This was a spur of the moment idea for my wife's birthday. With only two days to set up a booking, everything went smoothly. Booking was made via email and it was very convenient. We were doing the tubing adventure on the Grand River. On the day of the tour, we showed up at the specified location and Garth and... More

This was our first time having a try at the kayak. We wanted to make sure that we had some instruction and thought that a guided tour might be also nice. So glad that we chose to do a guided tour with instruction. Our guide ROXANE was fantastic. Personable, knowledgeable and professional, she made our day on the river a... More

This has been an awesome experience for our family. Our 4 yr old loved it. We spend 5 hours on the river exploring nature. Our guide Keith was very knowledgeable and made us feel super special. We swam, had a little picnic, went on a little nature walk and had a great time body surfing...just ask my 4 yr old:)... More
