A unique activity in a beautiful setting. Ken was knowledgeable and made sure we were all comfortable with what we were doing. The river-bug was a fun way to get across the gorge. This is something I would be interested in doing again.

Punting with Ken and the team was such a wonderful way to experience Elora! They are very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the hidden gems to be found along the banks of the Grand River.

This was so beautiful. A bit of a thrill. Will for sure be telling people to do this. Everyone should at least try this out. You should be able bodied to attempt this.

A great history lesson on a lovely tour. Felt very victorian. It made a beautiful Father's Day that my dad really appreciated! Was super fun and unique. I was told you're also allowed to bring your dog, that's rare :)
