What can I say... this was so much fun! All of the guides were friendly and funny. Our personal guide, Gabriel, was absolutely fantastic... he was fluent in both French and English. He worked well with the kids in our raft (pre-teens). He offered us multiple opportunities to get into the water as it was an extremely hot day during our time. Highly recommend... a little bit of a workout but not too much!

This was incredible. A must do if you visit Montreal. It definitely gets your adrenaline pumping. I had no prior rafting experience, but felt safe even with 15ft waves. The instructors are amazing -- they are very personable, while taking safety seriously. It's a great ride.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. the guides were all wonderful and full of joy. The guides allowed us to jump into the river a couple of times, making the experience even more fun. Only change I would make is allow the rowers to switch sides on the raft halfway through so one shoulder doesn't get so worn out.

To celebrate my son's 13th birthday, I decided to surprise my family with this excursion! I didn't realize that there were still rapids on the St Lawrence! We had a ball! So much fun that my so wants to do this again next year for his birthday! I wouldn't do this with super young children but my teen boys loved it, so did my husband and I. Our guides were fun, informative, and very kind! They show passion for rafting and the St Lawrence! We are going to do this again!

We went for a bachleorette activity and we all had a blast. Our leader was awesome; funny and added to the fun. Rafting itself was such a thrill; the big waves made it scary at times but you feel accomplished when you pass them. It's great working as a team w/ your friends and it's a good workout!

Everybody looking at this review must do this tour!! It was so much fun. You Go through 7km of paddeling/rapids. The rapids are a class 4. It takes approx 2.5 hours including the demonstration. Once off the raftyou get transported back to your departure point via bus. Highly reccomended!

Fun tour but more paddling than true rapids so good for those that haven't done much white water rafting, if any. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable and felt completely safe the whole time. great activity to do as a family

The level of rapids was less than I expected. The experience depends considerably on who else is in the boat and how much paddling they do. We had 4 youngsters who contributed little to our ability to maneuver into positon to get the better waves. We encountered only 2 or 3 good short rides, and there was a lot of paddling required by the participants. It can be a pleasant trip, but don't expect great rapids with a wild ride.
