Full disclosure: We wanted to stay in Canmore on the last day of our Banff/Jasper vacation, but we couldn't find a hotel room that wouldn't break the bank. So we decided to spend it in Calgary. We had heard that it was an underrated city but weren't sure how we could explore it.

So I googled free walking tours and found Walk the YYC. Walk the YYC arranged a last-minute free walking tour of Calgary on a Sunday for my husband and me. Rob, the tour guide, was excellent. For over two hours, he showed us his favorite places in downtown Calgary and gave us a sense of its history and culture.

I always try to find a 'free walking tour' in whatever city I visit. The tour guides like Rob show you the hidden gems and major attractions. By the end, you feel like you are ready to explore on your own. Rob's tour was no exception. After our walk ended, we ate lunch at one of the restaurants he recommended and then drove across town to the Bow Valley Foot Path and Prince Island Park, which he recommended Overall, we had an unexpectedly wonderful day in Calgary.

A great way to feel the Halloween spirit! The tour lasts just over an hour and it’s not too far of a walk. It’s a fun way to tour around inglewood and hear cool ghost stories. our tour guide, Rob, is a great story teller.

Brian is very knowledgeable about the history of Calgary and walked us through several spots on Stephen Street. We had a wonderful tour learning more about the area, and Brian was very fun and friendly. He went above and beyond all of our expectations.

My husband and I did the brewery tour in august. We were not sure what to expect but are new to Calgary and we were looking for a unique experience. We had so much fun with our tour guides, Brian and Jessica. We were able to tour four different breweries, sample flights at each, experience an amazing dinner at one of the breweries (which was also a smokehouse), all while being chauffeured from place to place by our guides. Our guides filled the night with Calgary folklore as well as prohibition history. It was like hanging out with old friends. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience a fun night out on the town.

First of all the guide did not even introduce himself
Bad start! He also did not seem to care about his guests. I would not call this a city tour. I have done walking tours all over the world and this was the worst one ever. Too much shallow uninteresting information. Too many stops showing us where to take a great photo (not useful). Boring stops that lasted too long. (I don"t give a damn about the big goldfish) Not recommended for experienced travelers who wish to learn interesting stuff.
