Secrets of the south Ontario canada

All in all, we really enjoyed it. There was just a couple things, like for a lot of the time going from .2 to .3 there was absolutely no cell service in the area and we had to drive around a lot of extra time just to get to a place where there was service so we could put the next address into the GPS. So that’s something to maybe consider, or warn people about. And then in the fourth and final place there was two restaurants that were listed there and one of them is currently out of business, so that might be something that you could update as well.
The tote bag is really nice.

Adventurous Experience

Lovely experience, sight seeing all the little spots nearby where we live. Gave us a way to come together, enjoy the outdoors and many shops along the way. Would highly recommend.
The only change we would have made on this trip, was the last stop, was in a small town that was not enjoyable, and would have rather gone to another nearby shoreside stop.

Great first trip!

This was our first Guess Where Trip Adventure and we loved it! We used to do the Shunpiker tour in London every Mother's Day and when the Free Press stopped running it after 50 years we were looking for something similiar and we definitely found it. This one was close to home and we split it up over two weekends. We love taking our time and looking at things. Although it was local we found places we have never been to and some have become places we visit regularly now. Every time we are at one of the food stops we see others with their Guess Where package.

Great September Girls Ramble!

We chose to do almost all the suggested stops - recommend! We would have loved to have had more time, coming from Kitchener area. Next one will be over a weekend so we can really take our time. It was really nice to explore after the summer rush. There are definitely a few spots I'll return to. I'd also recommend saving 1-2 hours for the last envelope!
