This is our 2nd trip with Guess Where and we've loved both of them. In both cases we saw places we'd never have found on our own. We highly recommend Guess Where.

This was a fun trip to do from Toronto, although we got a bit lost at the first stop because the signage wasn't great. Lunch was at a nice restaurant.

Fun Fall Excursion

We did this trip as a family and although we knew the area, we found some new spots that we hadn’t known existed before. Weather was rainy, but it added to the atmosphere! Had a great time!!

Fun day trip!

This was our first trip and we had a great time! We picked this trip to do with our 10 year old because she enjoys spooky, scary things and it was perfect! The directions were easy to follow and I liked how we didn’t have to do any advance planning, but that the day was totally customizable once we were in our way.

Eerie feelings and screaming ghosts!

We checked this trip out just before Halloween! The first stop we missed and had to cycle back around to….. we did a side stop first!! The (teen) kids loved this! We explored for a half hour and could have done longer! The real first stop we found less interesting but stayed for about 30 minutes….. we plan to go back and explore parts that require booking in advance.
The second stop by far was the spookiest! My crew heard female screams from an impossible location! The hairs on our arms stood up, and a general feeling of Ill ease.
We didn’t stop at the food locations but they sounded great!
The last stop on the tour had a parking payment, if you wanted to get out to explore…… we did! I would recommend hiking gear and allowing an hour to a few to explore!

We loved the additional stops to continue on if you wanted to keep going….. however we were too tired to continue!

What a great trip!
Sincerely our crew ( a history buff, a nature photographer, an outdoorswomen, and an energy healer! )
