Thank you, Louise, for your thorough review. We appreciate you commenting on some of the other services we provide (like the advice we offer in our pre-trip email) other than the guiding itself. And of course, we're really pleased you enjoyed our hike together.

Thank you, Maggie, for writing up a review, and for all of you being real troopers out there in the snow and rain. Canadian Rockies "winter weather" merit badges all around for you!

Hi, We don't have black flies in the portion of the Canadian Rockies covered by Banff and Jasper National Parks. We do get mosquitoes, but in most areas they are not a big problem, and the season is quite short.
