This trip was a 'Must' ! Incredible beauty and a brisk hike! Our guide, Becky ROCKED! She was insightful, knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of history and interesting stories to not overbear us but instead create an excursion that was our best of our eight day stay in Banff. Check it Out!!

The tour guide was lively and informative. I learnt a lot about animals that morning and even got to see loads of deer and mountain goats. Recommend this tour to anyone visiting Banff! Especially if you love animals. There are a lot of beautiful scenic stops, paused for the local animals. Even got to try some lovely maple cookies! And... More

We just went on the snowshoeing tour a couple of days ago and it was so much fun! We got to hike around the beautiful Marble Canyon in the snow, the view was magnificent at every step, and we made delicious maple candy at the end. Our tour guide Bethy was super patient and personable! We really felt like we... More

Banff is the most amazing place I have ever been. Everything about Banff made it so hard to leave, after only planning on staying in Banff for 2nights, to visit my best friend, while I was travelling this summer, we ended up delaying our plans of traveling the east coast of America to spend an extra few nights in Banff....

Hi Iona I'm glad you got to visit Larch Valley and were pleased with the scenery and location. We're sorry you didn't have the time you were expecting. It sounds like you joined the tour during the high season. Traffic struggles are beyond our control and when they do cause delays it puts tremendous pressure on the guides to complete... More

We learnt so much from Norm - especially about all the local Canadian wildlife. The tour itself was great, no long boring drives and we... More

Learnt a lot about the history of Banff and its surrounding areas whilst seeing the stunning scenery first hand. Our tour guide, Becky, was friendly and willing to answer questions and share her knowledge on Banff - highly recommended if you want to learn about Banff whilst having access to some great places!

I went on a five hour tour to viewing spots around Banff, the Banff Springs Hotel, the hoodoos, Bow River falls and the most picturesque Lake Louise. We had only sixteen on our tour so it was very easy to ask questions and Norm our guide was very interesting and fun. I fully recommend this tour as an introduction to... More

Companies website has wrong time for fall horse back rides and company refuses to give a refund because the manager is in Europe. So the company is happy to take your money but they can't (refuse?)
