Amazing day - It was a pleasure to participate in this daytrip! We saw many great places, canoed, walked two trails (waterfall and lookout point), swam in a lake, drove to the visitor's center and all of this with a very nice group of people. Our guide Mike was super friendly and did his best to make us enjoy the day and see the beauty of Algonquin Provincal Park. Highly recommended trip!

Inspirational views and fresh air! - Inspirational views, clean and fresh air, and excellent weather. Great hiking locations and the guide, Mike, accommodated the participants with an extra hike due to a light rain shower that cut the canoe trip a little short. The hikes were relatively easy, and Mike allowed everyone to go at their own pace. The van ride was good and Mike made sure everyone had an opportunity to buy some food and drinks along the way. The only recommendation I have would be to sprinkle in a little more information or history along the way.

Too expensive for too little. - Algonquin is beautiful in itself but I feel like the trip is a little misbranded. The ‘hikes’ are short 2km walks and in between there is a long hours break for lunch which you have to provide yourself before a small amount of time on the water in a canoe and a swim off an ‘island’ which is merely just a rock in the middle of the water. My guide wasn’t particular enthusiastic and it felt like it was just a side job for him to concentrate on his main hustle in life. The journey time in comparison to what you get to do isn’t good so I wouldn’t recommend, especially for the price. This is an expensive trip and looking back at the ones I did in Jacque Cartier in Quebec and Mt Tremblant in Montreal for a quarter of the price, I now feel like this is a bit of a rip off.

Ups and downs - The places we were taken too were excellent, hiking and canoeing. Our guide, Joe, was so good. He did an excellent job. However, we felt that there was not enough correct information provided before the day (lunch arrangements and no mention of swimming). Also, for such a long day we spent a lot of time in the van. It would have been a better day if had been able to get out more and walk more. Finally, for safety reasons, two guides would have been a lot better. Joe had to do a lot of driving over the day. Not great for him or us.

Great but "short" - The guide, Mike, was fantastic. But the thing I missed is that as we just had one day and the distance from Toronto is long, I expected to approach the tour more, doing longer and more beautiful trackings. The ones that we did were very beautiful, but It could be better.

Terrible - Not enjoyable at all. Wouldn't recommend. Long, boring and better tours out there at much cheaper rates.

We feel ripped off! - We started at 8am for a four hour drive with one stop of at shop and one other pickup. We canoed on the lake for 40mins. Then we where asked if we wanted to do a 5k hike or a 10.5 hike. We felt obliged to do the 10k as the guide seemed very keen as did the others. This hike went on for four hours at high walking speed set by the guide up and down hills. It was boring and not something we wanted to do on our holidays to this length. We have done many hikes in the past much longer and tougher than this but didn't want to do this type of hike for this long on our holidays. Even though the wonderful owner Lenka said that we supposedly struggled by others. After 4 hours of up and down hiking we got back and again stopped at another waterfall then stopped again at a shop for the guide to get himself tubs of ice cream. The tour seems to fit around the guide more than him knowing his audience. We got home at 10pm. We contacted the wonderfully rude owner Lenka who went ahead without our consent and contacted the other members in our group who supposedly stated that we where struggling. Lenka didn't ask our permission to contact the other members of the group which is completely unprofessional and I think illegal. This was a terrible experience from start to finish and an expensive tour when there.betyer ones out there much much cheaper. I'd absolutely avoid and it's been reported to Toronto tourist board.. Avoid
