Danny Yatco - Algonquin Trout Fish Canoe TripAlgonquin Trout Fish Canoe Trip
April 30-May 2, 2010

The Algonquin Trout fish canoe trip had been a memorable experience for me. I had been telling my friends and workmates about it and been getting emails about the pictures posted on the web. I enjoyed spending the weekend with John, Dave and Frank on North Tea lake, rain could not have dampened any of our spirit because I felt I was with people who really enjoyed the outdoors not because their friends like it but because they like it with or without their friends. The cabin staff's (Amy, Matt, Dusan) stories made my time with them feel short and I cannot leave out Tracy who pulled together the bookings and requests like a jigsaw puzzle. As little as I get to see the outdoors those personalities adds flavour to that experience. I would like to extend my thanks to all of you.

Algonquin Park Christmas Holiday Vacation
December 24-27, 2011

We happened upon the Log Cabin Christmas package while trying to plan an exciting Christmas experience for our Japanese exchange student while he was in Canada. We hit the jackpot with Voyageur Quest, with fabulous ambiance, plenty of snow, every winter activity in the book, and very comfortable accommodations. Joe's food was great - excellent home cooked meals, and lively dinner table conversations with the other guests in the evenings. Highly recommended

Algonquin Park Christmas Holiday Vacation
December 24-27, 2011

This was our first trip to Canada and we wanted to do something special as we were re-uniting with our 'children' after almost 12 months apart. Voyageur Quests' Algonquin Christmas package certainly did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived, the pace was unhurried and we were able to take part in as many, or as few, snow activities as we wished. Christmas day was relaxed and unforgettable; Joe's scrumptious brunch was excellent, as were the many culinary delights he served us...and he's more than willing to share his recipes too! Mark, our host and guide was extremely knowledgeable and versatile and our enjoyment was his priority. The location, the facilities and the activities all exceeded our expectations and made this an unforgettable Christmas. Don't worry about it being cold in the depths of winter, the huge central fire makes it incredibly warm. Just don't forget your torch! We'd also highly recommend the dog-sledding if you want another amazing Canadian experience

I just wanted to write and say how much Pete and I enjoyed our Log Cabin Christmas! We had the most wonderful time with Pete as our guide and with Joe providing such fabulous meals! The company was great and of course the weather was absolutely fabulous - lots and lots of snow!

The activities were most enjoyable. We'll have to go some to top this Christmas - hopefully be back again one year, thank you very, very much!

May 30 - June 1, 2005

We recently joined you in the Algonquin Log Cabin for the Pathways tour and
now that we have returned to England I just wanted to drop you a quick note
to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Log Cabin. In particular we
enjoyed the sunset and sunrise paddles. The sunrise paddle is one we really
will never forget. The images of the misty lake with Moose browsing on water
lilies as the sun rose was unforgettable.

Most of all I would like to say what outstanding guides you have working for
you. Mike was very friendly and good company, Dan was superb and very knowledgeable and also good company. Most of our time though was spent with Kendra and she was a fantastic guide with a huge amount of knowledge.
All three are excellent representatives of your company and I think you are very lucky to have such wonderful members of staff. I hope that you
can pass our thanks on to them for us.

We very much hope to return one day to do one of your winter tours.

Many thanks,
Andy, Michelle and Kirsty Neaves

Dear Voyageur Quest:

I would like to take this oportunity to thank your company for the fantastic
weekend myself and Emily spent at your log cabin and in the wall tent. I can
say without one iota of doubt that it was the single best weekend of our
lives, in every possible way. The location of the cabin is fantastic, the
cabin itself is beautiful and comfortable, the nature is beyond words, the
food was better than I could have possibly imagined, and the best part of
all - the Voyageur Quest guides! Chris and Andrew were polite, efficient,
competent, friendly, funny, master-chefs...the list goes on. They are a
credit and a major asset to your fine company. You will definitely be seeing
us again!

I attach a photo with our happy faces during the weekend.

Best regards,
Allen Milcic and Emily Burtnik

I can't tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed our time in Algonquin last week. The fresh snowfall made the already picturesque setting a true winter wonderland. The facilities were great, Mike was great, and the weather was perfect!

Thank you both so much for the opportunity to experience what you have been telling us about for years. I am so grateful I made it out there.
We also had a chance to stop by the Log is incredible! I bet it's even better in the summer. You have a great thing going.

I've enlcosed a few photos of our trip. Thank you again for everything!

Our trip was AWESOME! We'd like to congratulate you for operating a first-class tour company! Naturally, we are very exhausted and exhilarated after our trip. Our family thanks you for the wonderful experience.

Kris and Trevor were a perfect match for us. They were very professional yet fit in so well with our family dynamics. Trevor related wonderfully to our children and we loved his silly games. Star gazing with him was truly amazing! Kris was very nurturing and organized, and she cooked awesome meals!

The park trails are gorgeous and our explorations were challenging enough that we felt accomplished at the end of each day! The cottages were lovely and comfortable. We were grateful for a cozy and clean "home" to snuggle in.

Haliburton was a great finale for us animal lovers and definitely worth the ride. Dogsledding was a huge hit, as were the captive wolves and the education we received...we had the museum to ourselves!

Regards to Kris and Trevor- hope they enjoyed our stay as much as we did! Did they mention the "Griswold Trail"? We could make a movie...

Warm regards and many thanks,
Amelia & John, Amanda, Jake, Alex, John and Emma Griswold

Our three week family holiday in Ontario this summer was excellent.
The highlight was our time spent in Algonquin. Our kids enjoyed every
minute and when friends and family ask 'what did you do in Canada?' our trip with you is the starting point.

Particular thanks to our excellent guide Kris- whose spaghetti is still
rated by our 7 yr old as his favourite holiday meal!

Besides the wonderful accomodations, beautiful location, and excellent food, it was your staff that made this trip a memorable one. I had to tear people away from the place when it was time to leave.

The experience was simply wonderful. Such a fabulous respite from the noise and stress of urban life. The accommodation was terrific, more luxurious than expected. I?ve had lots of holiday experiences over the last 30 years and this was one of the best. We were catered to, fussed over, entertained and offered a wide variety of outdoor experiences. Kris is the veritable den mother who was just totally amazing. Trevor, funny enthusiastic always smiling and up for any adventure and sweet Abby who told wonderful tales, serenaded us and was a wealth of knowledge about the forest. Thanks so much!

We are back from our Canadian vacation, and are now looking back especially on what a great experience the Algonquin portion of the trip was for us. It could not have been better.....the canoeing, swimming, island venturing, portaging, great weather, moose watching, outstanding meals, logistics, solitude, your advanced planning on our behalf, everything was excellent. We would like to thank each of you.

Mike was the best we could have imagined.....leadership, adventuring, cooking (gosh, what great food and so well prepared), storyteller, moosefinder (we saw our fair share, including up close and personal with one memorable moose one morning).

If we venture back up to Canada for a wilderness adventure (maybe a winter one next time), we'll be sure to give you a call.

Again, our sincere thanks,
Jeff, Bev, Mike, Katie, and Matthew Ross
