We were unable to complete the trip. We attempted to complete all the stops. Would recommend, be discerning. Look to see if the stop is of interest to you. Loved the southern most part of the leg.

We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. We've never been to this area of Ontario, very scenic and educational. Enjoyed the unique places we visited. We didn't get to all the suggested places, will have to go back

Awesome!

I have lived around this area almost my entire life but there were so many places on this trip I had never heard of before! Was great being able to explore cute local towns/outdoor activities only an hour away. Loved it!!!
