“What a GRAND day!”
This is the second time I've taken a group of International English students to travel the Grand with Garth and his team. What a spectacular time we had!
The guides with GRR make sure that the needs of their clients come first. We paddled, we played, and we were educated.
The knowledgeable staff know exactly what each group needs, from information on the flora and fauna of the area, to play time body surfing down the waters!
Thanks to the thoughtfulness and professionalism of this great company, I'll be back again and again with more students.

First Timers on the Grand River
We recently booked a day trip for exchange students with the Grand River Rafting Company and it was an experience the students will definitely consider one of the highlights of their time here in Canada.
The trip involved so much more then we had thought it would,our guide was so informative about trees and plants. We were taken to a fresh water spring and filled up our water bottles,the students were fascinated with the gypsum mine, and the games our guide played were great fun.
Next year we have decided to take our family on this rafting day trip and I am sure the exchange organization will again take students.
All in all I highly recommend this trip,not only was it great fun, but a learning experience as well. Thank you Garth and Jeff for making our day so memorable.
