What people are saying about Ontario

The trip was very long (7am to 10pm) but amazing! If you are ok with sitting quite some time in the bus this is definitely worth a shot. Michael and Ramiro took us to Bruce Peninsula and showed us around. We discovered ship wrecks from the kayak, hiked through the national park and jumped in the water at the famous grotto. Everything being documented by Ramiro who provided us afterwards a variety of pictures from all of us. (Little sidenote to the participants: its easier for the group if everyone sticks to the plan and arrives on time since the time slots for the different stops are well planned. Otherwise you lose time on the spot...)
