      Spring hike
      We went on a morning walk to the falls. Our guide Jeff was wonderful! Educated us of the wildlife, safety and the canyon itself. Answered all of our questions. Had a treat of maple cookies and hot chocolate at the top. Also we were supplied ice cleats for our hike. I do highly recommend this company tour.

      Johnston canyon ice walk
      Great night hike of Johnston Canyon! My friend and I booked a tour online beforehand and we got picked up from a different hotel (only certain downtown hotels allow for pickup). Since it was in February, we dressed very warmly. Handwarmers and foot warmers would be advised. They provide headlamps which you can keep as a souvenir as well as snow shoes. Our group had about 12 people in it and we all fit comfortably in their van. The night hike was short and not too strenuous. We saw a waterfall and stopped at various points to gaze at the stars. One good tip for those with iPhones is to change the night mode setting from 3 seconds to 10 seconds in order to allow the photos to develop better. We had hot cocoa while on the trail and were given a packet of maple cookies. Overall, the night hike was a nice way to explore safely at night and view the beauty of nature.

      Unique Experience of a Vanishing Treasure
      The Athabasca Glacier is a Unique Adventure where you ride on to the Glacier in a Giant Arctic Bus. It is near Banff and it is very convenient to join the Trip. Standing on Millions of pounds of ice is very humbling. Take many photos on the Glacier as it gets smaller every yera, and will eventually be gone.

      A fantastic hike at Johnston Canyon by Ros!
      Roz was a fantastic guide! We had six people on the hike and she chatted with all of us - was well prepared and made sure we were all taken care of. Great historical information about Johnston Canyon!

      Snowshoeing trip with Emma
      It was our first time in Banff and we decided to go on the snowshoeing trip. There was only two of us on the trip so Emma was like our personal guide, she was very informative and made it fun, getting us to walk in new untrodden snow and towards the end, to walk in snow with no snowshoes. My husband enjoyed the sliding down the slope while she started getting to make maple taffy and hot chocolate. Definitely recommend it as a trip to get out of the town and do something different.

      Great tour with Roz
      We did the Lake Louise tour. Roz, our guide, was an excellent host who talked about the history as we rode to the lake. The lake itself was one of the highlights of our trip.

      Arrived too late.
      Kicking Horse is spectacular, and not having to drive from Banff was terrific. But we arrived at 10:00 am, an hour after the mountain opened. Anyone who wants to take a 4 hour round trip bus ride for a day at Kicking Horse would have been willing to wake up an hour earlier to get there in time to ski a full day. And the bus was late for our pick up.

      Interesting night walk
      Interesting to see the frozen waterfall in winter and guide did good job to explain and show us about the different landscapes and stream. Night walk with cleats was an interesting experience than walking in the noon.

      Phenomenal walk, with knowledgeable, friendly expert guides.
      Amazing walk, made hugely more enjoyable and informative with our guides (one in training). They knew so much about the area, physical and human geography - and way beyond the “standard script”. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

      Make a killing!! If I had all this ice in Texas!!
      Once in a life time experience!! I would say.. from someone who lives in the oven and travel to the ice box!! Ive done trails at +100° to now -0°... like i said before life time experience... for someone who is not accustomed to being in a cold climate it can be a bit apprehensive... but i did it!! wonderful guide, great tips as far as hiking this trail !! and didn't let me quit... i just wanted to reach the lower falls and that would of been fine for me!! Try not to over layer even in the cold your body will begin to over heat!! yes it made me sweat... but a wonderful experience!! oh if really cold temps you might want to double on you socks only part that i felt cold but on the way down had a reverse affect??

      Great tour! Highly recommend
      I had an amazing time. Booking an appointment was a breeze. Even though I arrived a bit late at the meeting point, our tour guide patiently waited for me. The pickup and drop-off locations were incredibly convenient. Our guide, who I believe was named Molly or Nicole, was not only exceptionally knowledgeable but also very friendly and professional. I'm genuinely thankful for such a fantastic experience. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    Met up at a coffee shop in the main district of Banff. Our guide Mike was friendly enough and got us ready. The walk took us through some of the quieter streets of Banff. Mike told us some stories about local ghost sightings and experiences. The tour easily lasted the full allotted time, if not longer.

    I have to be honest and say I was a little underwhelmed, I've been on ghost tours in other cities and they were more developed and engaging. From reviews of this one I expected the host to be dressed up a little and for the tour to perhaps go into, or at least get close to locations - making it more tangible to back up stories. There was a lot more pointing at places or general directions and saying that if you go there and wander to x room you'll find y, rather than actually seeing it first hand, which might have made a better experience.

    I suppose its early days yet for the Banff Ghost tours so things might get a lot better, but I didn't feel the price justified the experience just yet.

    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review and the feedback. Banff has a lot of paranormal stories to offer that are unique to the area. It is not always possible to get super close to where the story took place as it is private property but we try our best to get as close as possible.

    Booked at start of year as part of holiday to Canada from UK.
    Covid restrictions meant flight was cancelled after being told we were unlikely to be allowed into Canada.
    All other pre-booked trips either cancelled (and refunded) or postponed to next year, however no online contact details available for this company to request similar, and unable to request via Trip Adviser.
    Was hoping to hear from the company when we failed to confirm attendance 24 hours before but nothing that a request for a review.
    We would still love to come when we are eventually able to visit Canada, if our tickets could be held until then?

    This tour was awesome!! Mike was our guide and he was fun, entertaining, and very knowledgeable! He had the hair on our arms standing up several times! He included everyone and shared personal stories and jokes and made everyone feel included, and even stayed after the tour was over to share a couple of extra stories - I would have loved another hour or two it would have totally been worth it!! Now we have to go back and visit some of these places again because we're so intrigued, and I would totally do the tour again!!

    I love finding ghost tours when visiting a town/city. It's a great way to learn about a place, take a safe night time stroll, and hear some spooky tales. Spouseman is a paranormal sceptic and he still had a great time. Our guide Jen was professional, knowledgeable, approachable, and fun.

    The stories told about the real people who have lived in Banff connected me to this beautiful place. I would highly recommend.

    We attended this tour yesterday evening. Guide was enthusiastic despite the occasional rain and persistent mosquitoes (he did share his insect repellent.)
    Only negative (for my teenage sons) was it went a bit long.

    Highly recommended. We learned more on this tour than going to museums. You got a mix of paranormal and history as well seeing the sights. The guide was amazing he told us his name but we can only remember Sam and Bob which he told us not to use unless it was a negative comment. Totally worth the trip. I think we will do ghost walks every where we go from now on as they makes real history more interesting with their extra enthusiasm.

    Mike, our tour guide was super friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. He was a great story teller with some fab jokes and knew all the best spots for photo ops. It was a great way to see Banff and gain a little history with a lot of fun. Would recommend if you are into learning local history. Unfortunately, we didn't see any ghosts this time, but we did see a family of elk.
