Up in Canada from the states for vacation. Did a self guided raft down the grand with our family of four. We had a blast, very relaxing, brought a cooler to stop and have lunch right off to the side of the river (pick up some subway and throw it in the cooler). The map they provide is awesome and...

We went on a trip back on July. We rented one tandem kayak and a canoe. Unfortunately, our canoe flipped over. We went back on shore safely but the flipped canoe floated downstream. The friendly staff calmed us down and kindly offered to set us up in a raft. We restarted the journey and still had great fun despite the... More

Just returned from four wonderful hours *tubing* the Grand River. Who knew something this much fun was practically right in our backyard. Chose the *turbo tubes* (high backed tubes with paddle) HIGHLY RECOMMEND these very comfortable tubes. We did the Onieda run and it took four hours, relaxing, bird watching, laugh induced fun. DID NOT take the guide as the... More

A wonderful place to spend with family and other friends. The water is very shallow, the boat got stuck several times in the middle of the way, but it was fun to push the raft away by standing in the water. Please bring your zip bag for cellphones and big plastic bag for you backpack, swimming suit for water playing... More

We had a great day doing a guided kayak tour down the Grand River. We are not the easiest of groups as my daughter is disabled but everything worked perfectly. My daughter shared a twin kayak with my partner; I shared a twin with my youngest son and my older son had one to himself and we all had a... More

Had an incredible day flowing down the river between Paris and Brantford in a raft. The 3 of us including a 5 year old had an amazing time, so lots of wild life and would recommend this to anyone out there looking to see a side of southern Ontario that you have never seen.

These guys helped us out when their competitor stood us up after over 2 hours of waiting. Thanks for helping us salvage what could have been a disastrous day. Had a lovely 3 hours of kayaking on the Grand river. The instructions and map that were provided were very helpful.

My 10 yr, old and 13 yr. Old absolutely LOVED tubing down the Grand! Every single tour guide was bright and friendly! They were very helpful as well. We were shuttled back by the owner and his wife. What great people they are. There was a group of 50 from Beijing when we were there also. The guides and owners... More

After reading so many positive reviews on this site, I am reflecting on the day spent rafting on the Grand River with my niece (14) and two of her friends (13 and 11) recently. While at the end of the day, the girls said they had a "great day", it was not without some surprises for novice paddlers, and I... More
