The six of us chose to take this adventure while we were on our vacation for a friends birthday, unsure of what to expect. A few of us were hesitant to go, with one person particularly terrified. Our guide, Simon, was absolutely amazing and totally took her under his wing and helped her and all of us have a very memorable adventure. It was very safe, and the guides are very friendly and experienced. We also joined the guides and staff for dinner afterwards, and had a delicious meal of salmon, salad, and baked potatoes. A few of them even sang 'happy birthday' to our friend in French :). The staff is so down to earth, and you can tell that they really enjoy what they do and are interested in getting to know their visitors. We finally ended a fantastic evening with a beer by the bonfire :).

Thank you! My family group of 7 women ages, 13-82, and 1 male took part in a half-day rafting adventure and had an incredible time! Aaron was our raft guide and he was a delight. He was firm but funny, trained us well, showed a lot of patience and took good care of us "older ladies". Language was no problem as Aaron was perfectly bilingual. My brother was the only male in our group and he was glad to have Aaron in charge of us as well! It was exciting, hard work and safety-conscious and what beautiful scenery. The Jacques Cartier River through Tewkesbury is an untouched wilderness gem. Our rafting trip helped to make our family reunion/ wake a great success and was truly a "bon aventure"!

hi Franck!!!! we just wanted to let you know that we LOVED your white water rafting trip and enjoyed so much meeting you and your fabulous crew. Coming from Australia, we had never done such a thing before and were most impressed with your safety procedure and your sense of fun and respect for nature. We would recommend your trip to anyone and you even made me feel safe with your attention to detail We are now in Charlevoix and loving it but every time we see a bit of white water or a waterfall we think of you. Thank you so much. You are awesome!!! Mark, Gail, Mark and Bronte xx ps love your tartan shorts!

What a fantastic 3 hours of fun! The white water rapids are great fun in the hands of the highly experienced and qualified guides. The safety standard is very high but there is a equal amount of fun, great mixture. Through yourself at the water activities to make it even better. To top of a great day the evening bbq is great and well deserved!

We took "The Traditional" half day tour during the middle of our Quebec City vacation but did not stay for food. The location is gorgeous, just the drive out there is worth it. They are very well organized, safe, and have great instructors. Our family was one of the few that didn't speak French, so our instructor had to work twice as hard to give instructions in both languages. Everyone in our family rated this as one of the best parts of the trip. Well worth it!
