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.

There was a huge gang of over 25 adults, in kayaks, canoes and rafts who made our way downstream on the Grand River on a gorgeous Sunday in May. Many thanks to the great Guides who helped us navigate the rapids and to take us ashore for snacks and to enjoy some interesting sites along the way. We will be... More

We spent a great day on the Nith river, testing our white water skills. The staff at Grand Experiences were great as always. We've booked numerous times with Jamie and his knowledge of the river and area make the trips more enjoyable. The staff are all very helpful and make for a fun day out on the water.

I took my daughters on a Nith River white water rafting tour yesterday. My concerns were raised initiailly when the staff at the outfitters gave adult (ladies small) lifejackets to my two ten year olds. After my insistence that this was inappropriate, they came up with some junior size life vests and handed a couple to the children saying they... More

One owner Jamie Kent knew so much about river, about canoeing, and about nature. Second, it was awesome because the weather was great and the ride down the... More

I've been several times over the years. The river is great for beginners. Love the landscape. My only concern is from arrival to when we enter the water is somewhat chaotic. Registering, paying, waiting and instruction prior to entering the river needs to be tightened up. Perhaps the arriving group can share in this issue. But I feel they have... More
