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

My family of four did the rafting guided tour, crew was polite and professional. They had amazing knowledge of the river. You can't go wrong with these guys.

My husband and I and our two great friends wanted to participate in The Day of 1000 Canoes on The Grand River last weekend. We live an hour away, would be traveling together, and don't own canoes. After checking out the list of outfitters in the area, we settled upon the Grand River Rafting Co as our outfitter. They were... More

We have done the "white water" experience but wanted a relaxing rafting trip down the river. We had beautiful weather, spectacular scenery and a fun river guide, Mike. Very enjoyable day. Everyone from grandparents to grand kids had a great time.

I was given a Groupon for a 3-hour rafting excursion for Christmas. We got around to using it last Saturday. As a group of 4 young adults (late 20s - early 30s), I have to say we were a little worried it would be too tame (the description noted that the trip was appropriate for ages 2&up, and that you...

We spent a wonderful day rafting on the Grand River. Our guides were super nice and had so much to tell us about the wilderness. We enjoyed tasting edible plants, drinking fresh water from a spring, learning what plants to avoid in the wilderness, and listening to the guides tales of the American Indians. It was such a peaceful day... More

A half-day "beginners" kayaking one-on-one instructional was a birthday present from home for this expat Australian living in Toronto. My guide Dale was fantastic, a fount of knowledge on local flora and fauna - and then halfway through the trip he told me that his partner was due to deliver their first baby at any moment! That is serious dedication... More

White Oaks Secondary School in Oakville returned to Grand River Rafting for the second time May 7-9 2014. We use them for our main camping trip in the Grade 11 Outdoor Ed course. Garth, Chad and all the staff did an amazing job of accommodating the needs of 60 students. The educational value of this trip is very high! Garth... More

Garth and Chad were both very friendly and easy to talk to. Garth is quite knowledgeable in kayaking safety and reading the waters and was able to communicate it clearly to us so that we felt confident when heading out for our first kayaking experience. We were encouraged to take our time and enjoy the scenery which we did. I... More

I have used their services a few times for camping, renting canoes, shuttle back to my car, and rafting. Prices are great, equipment in good order, and they seem to really care. No question they know what they are doing.
