This was my second time with work on the Grand Tour. This time I chose to kayak. I had never done it before, but wanted to. It was something to click off my bucket list...and definitely something I will repeat. It was fabulous. One of the guides gave me great instructions before and during the paddle. I had told him...

Had reservations for 7 for a 40th bday celebration . Well if turning 40 makes you depressed than book a trip with these clowns , you won't think twice about it ! Gongshow from start to finish . We couldn't wait to get out of our wet clothes and hit the pub for a brew, but our bus driver decided... More

We prebooked a guided 5-hour Long Point kayaking trip for 2 at the cost of over $100 each. We drove 2 hours from the GTA to meet our guide at the designated sight and arrived early for the 10 am meet-up. Got a call just before 10 am that they were running a half hour late and we should continue... More

We had a booking at 11:15 drove all the way from Toronto 2:30 pm and they wouldn't even answer out calls or have the courtesy to call back....thank god the trip wasn't for nothing and we were able to get squeezed in with another provider. They are rude, unprofessional and worst experience ever ...we met another couple who were there... More

Grand River Rafting were very easy to contact, provided a map, were super friendly and even helped us take out the one tandem... More

I recently went on a trip with Grand Experiences. The river itself was beautiful and our guide was very friendly however they were poorly organised from start to finish. They did not have what we booked, our guide had not been down the river before and consequently we got stuck on the shallows three times. We were told that there... More

Help you fine tune you paddling and they know the area and safety first! The equipments are in very good conditions. But they should be more punctual.

They provide a complete experience. Drive you to the start,provide all the gear, look after you on the way down river, and introduce you to scenic spots and a bit of history. The guides are very knowledgeable and attentive to each client's individual needs. An excellent opportunity to try paddling in fast water (not wild rapids) in a safe environment.
