          Fun and scenic
          It's an 18 mile bike ride. You will either ride to Johnston Canyon and hike about 2 miles to the lower falls or will be driven to Johnston Canyon, do the 2 mile hike and then bike 18 miles back to town from the canyon. Our tour guide Shaun told us the 2nd option was more scenic than the first. Given that these are ebikes (really awesome ones), makes the ride very pleasurable. Enough breaks during the ride at scenic spots for pictures. Shaun was very knowledgable about the area and shared a lot of fun facts and kept us entertained during the bike ride and the hike. Vermillion lakes was one of the spots we stopped at (best spot for sunset , the red glow of the sky in the water is gorgeous). There was a wolf sighting by a vehicle in front of us, and that became a great highlight for us too. We saw a black bear on the ride to the canyon as well. Overall amazing experience and will repeat.

          Wonderful way to see the meadows!
          Kristi Beetch is an amazing, knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her and appreciated her patience as we prepared for our outing. Her love of the mountains is contagious! Everything ran smoothly and on time. Highly recommend!

          Very nice bike ride along Bow river!
          Thibaux was our guide and he did a great job! Informative, attentive and fun! The bikes were heavy but worked very well so the 20+ kms were very easy to do. We liked the short hike to the falls. It did not feel as we were losing a lot by not going to the upper falls. Really great way to get the feeling of the Bow river and surroundings.

          Bad decisions by booking agent and by guide in charge
          Boo to the owner who accepted someone “with a heart problem” on a trip rated “moderate to challenging” Boo to the guide who waited not 5 minutes, not 10 minutes but an entire 15 minutes for the same (unsuited) party to arrive, delaying all the other (prepared) participants. I know ‘this happens’ and i deal with folks all the time who have cognitive or physical disabilities but two massive strikes against the owner and the guide in charge for subjecting 7 able and ready participants to the needs of someone who should have been on a different trip and who was inexcusably late. We received a call from white mountain adventures yesterday asking us to be ready 15 minutes earlier than agreed - we happily accommodated this request (requiring us to corral two teens (IYKYK that’s no easy ask) only to then have us sit and wait in a parking lot for 15 minutes until the ill-suited party showed. Once we got underway, our guide asked us to set a slow pace to accommodate someone “with a heart problem”. WTF ???? - we didn’t sign up to be someone else’s caretaker. Bravo for the party in question for attempting, and for their attitude (they clearly said “we don’t want to slow down the group”) but a mega boo to who ever said “yes” to them. My complaint is not with the party but with the organization. We had plenty of medical skills in our group and would have made it available if asked but f##k we were on vacation and trying to get away from such demands. A big negative to whomever put us in the position of watching over such a need and another huge boo to whomever asked us to be early then forced us to wait for the same party to arrive (much later than arranged).

          Wow! Great ride, hike & wildlife sightings.
          Josh was a wonderful guide with perfect balance of humor, information & safety focus. Really enjoyed the bike ride & hike & black bear sighting. E-bikes were quite new & high quality. Especially glad that Josh had bear spray just in case!

          Great E bike tour
          great e bike tour with josh as our guide, we were the only 2 on the tour! we’ve never been on e-bikes before but found them easy and relaxing to ride . Josh was very friendly and informative and took us to beautiful places we wouldn’t have found on our own. and finished with a flight of beers from Canmore brewery . So glad we did this tour!! Highly recommend.

          Great balance and fun experience
          Jennifer did a great job meeting our ebike expectations. The route was ideal for the skill level of our group. The four hours spent were balanced nicely between a hike to see waterfalls and the bike ride.

          We enjoyed a superb trip to Johnston Canyon and cycle back to Banff along the Bow Valley Parkway. Amanda was an excellent guide and we saw an elk and a distant bear on the way back. The e-bikes were easy to use and provided an exhilarating experience through some stunning scenery.

          Great experience in beautiful scenery!
          Pretty easy hike to the lower falls. Guides were knowledgeable and the e-bikes were top notch and amazing. We went first thing in the morning, so first we drove to Johnson Canyon, hiked, and then biked back to Banff. A little disappointing as the bike ride was mostly downhill, but still lovely!

          Great family adventure
          We spent the best day checking out the lower Johnston Falls and Lake Louise with our almost 4 year old. Our guide, Sara was wonderful. She has a wealth of knowledge. She even took the time to rig up a pair of ice cleats for my daughter.

          Back country snow shoe adventure
          Unique and truly amazing backcountry experience. We highly recommend this adventure to anyone who is looking for something a little different, a little off the beaten path, and more than a little memorable! Jack was an extremely personable tour guide who was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond customizing the adventure to fit our skill level and interests. This exceeded our expectations ;) Thanks! 🥑

        Margaret was an exceptional guide! She knew the area well and was attentive to the needs of the group! Phyllis and I were very glad to get out to the lakes and skip all the parking lines. We had enough time to appreciate the beauty and granduer of Lake Louise and Moraine, with an additional hike to the Consolation lakes. That trail was relatively easy, but older hikers and folks with balance/ coordination or other mobility issues may want to avoid due to the uneven terrain and portions of the hike that had rocky terrain and exposed roots on the trail. Excellent reward at the end with beautiful views of the mountains above Consolation Lakes!

        Our Lake Louise/ Moraine Lake tour with May was exceptional. She was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The hike description says Easy, but it can be quite challenging in spots, fortunately she had provided us with walking sticks. Our tour was quite small, only 5 and the guide, and we were able to ask questions and talk to the others in the group easily. The lunch was so good! I would recommend white Mtn adventures and May any day!

        Thank you for your review, and for your perspective on the level of challenge on the hike experience. It is important to note that an 'easy' hike is rated relative to other hikes in the Canadian Rockies, and that even an 'easy' rating still may include roots, rocks and other challenges.

        This full day of hiking was absolutely perfect because of our guide Pablo. He was so knowledgeable of the area and clearly skilled in leading these tours. It made all the difference. I would encourage anyone to use this company , and Pablo.
