My wife, grandson, and I did the "Turbo Tube" ride (basically a good-sized tube with a back)--they provide the tube, lifevests, and paddles. Very helpful, patient, and friendly staff. We did the weekday trip, where you start at their office, take as long as you want (about 4-6 hours depending on how much you paddle and how much you float)... More

I thought this excursion was great for what it was. Its a bit lengthy so don't anticipate the end, simply enjoy the scenery and float your way down. Not too labor intensive and perfect for younger children. Next time i will bring a waterproof speaker and waterproof bag for my phone. ha.

This river in Paris, ON is a hidden gem! Only an hour and a bit from Toronto, so easy for a day trip. Did the basic canoe trip and it was great. This company is great, set you up with a canoe, let you go, and pick you up down the river. Only complaint was that we couldn't really read... More

It was a beautiful day, 84 degrees, we packed a picnic and had a blast! We rented a huge raft, tubes, kayaks and paddle boards were also available.... More

This is something we all enjoyed, my wife, granddaughter and my self. They give you little instructions, but who needs them. You get your tube and float. They supply the tube, life vest and paddles, the rest is up to you. This can take as long as you want (3-4 hours) or as fast as you want if you paddle.... More

He was very pleasant and welcoming, It was a busy morning but nevertheless, we were treated nicely. The river was a beautiful sight. There were... More

We arrived early as we didn't want to be amongst a large group. We Booked the day before for the 930 slot.. Everyone working was super friendly and professional. We loved our tubing adventure down the Grand-- we stopped off at the first point for pick up and we were happy to do some body surfing while we waited for... More

Six of us ranging in age from 8 to 69 went on a tubing trip with the Grand River Rafting company on July 23. It was a scorching hot day so we enjoyed being lightly splashed by the water and the younger ones enjoyed body surfing in the river. It wasn't as lazy a trip as I had envisioned, some... More

What a great day! Took my 15yrs old son during our vacation and had a blast. Saw lots of wildlife, filled our water bottles from a natural spring and climbed in an old mine. Highly recommend this trip

What a great trip! The staff was amazing - friendly, knowledgeable and gave some details about the river. It was nice to know all the secret places to stop and explore :) Registration was easy, pickup was fast (maybe 10 minute wait). Canoe's were in great shape and easy to paddle, which always makes for a better trip. Thank you... More
