Our family did the grotto ice walk. It is much less slippery with the special shoe attachments that are easy to put on. The highlight is the frozen waterfall at the end that is just beautiful. You also get the chance to see rock paintings by native peoples. We had a great tour guide named Becky. She was nice and... More

I took the interactive tour and had an absolute blast. They were extremely knowledgable and answered all of our questions. The wolf dogs were wonderful, while tentative, still very interesting to be able to observe and interact with.

The view was beautiful, the sky filled with lovely white flakes. The Canyon was stunning. We saw ice climbers going down into the canyon. The snow was perfect. The pace was slow, the guide talked way too much, otherwise a peaceful day. I'd recommend for an extreme novice, non athletic individuals, older couples, or those with small children.

Booked a last minute activity today. Took a tour to Marble Canyon with Discover Banff Tours. We had a fantastic afternoon, well worth the tour price. Our guide was Geoff, he was great fun to be round and very knowledgeable. Geoff even helped dig me out of the snow when I was unable to move for laughing. I would definitely... More

We went on the Johnston Canyon morning tour with Neil. He was fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable! The area has very beautiful scenery and the waterfalls frozen are breathtaking. We would definitely recommend this tour! Thanks again Neil for making the tour a great experience!

Despite receiving two confirmation emails for dog sledding including the pick up time, we were not picked up. When we made contact the company claimed that the booking was not confirmed as I had not replied to an email about my daughter's age. They did not contact me to confirm cancelation, indeed they sent me an email the day before... More

Went on the Johnston Canyon morning tour with Neil. He was awesome! Very friendly, lots of interesting information about the area. The area is very beautiful serene and multiple waterfalls. So glad they provided cleats cause there were lots of icy areas and we saw tons of people sliding around in regular shoes. Would def book with this group again!... More

Shambolic. Despite receiving an email from them yesterday confirming details of our dog sledding trip today (booked weeks ago), they failed to collect us this morning. They then claimed they "didn't receive our booking" before eventually offering a refund. So disappointing.
