We make sure that every single tour that you take with us is an adventure and something that you’ll take home with you and never forget.

This was such an amazing trip! I had the most amazing people and guides ever- Ben and Parker. They both went out of their way to ensure we got to do everything we wanted even if it inconvenienced them a little bit. So amazing. Thank you also to Discover Canada for finding a way for me to go and being so accommodating amazing company!

I joined the 5 day Taste of the Wild Rockies tour and I absolutely loved it! Our guides Janelle and Hayden were fantastic and took great care of us. All the spots we visited were definitely worth our while and I really recommend this tour!

I am a seasoned traveler . I specifically go on tours just like this at least once if not twice a year for past decade . This was a new company that I never knew or heard before , reviews looked good so me and my wife decided to give them a shot . Let me tell you - 5/5 reviews are lying . They deserve more . A lot more . Organization Tour took place over 5 days. There was NEVER any lag . All activities were working smoothly and precisely as planned. There were times where we were on a tight schedule , but what’s app reminders , involvement of the tour guide and her assistant in the activities steered entire group into the direction where I didn’t even feel that there was any pressure for time . Entire experience was seamless, and that takes a lot of skill to execute . On top of that , the plan… I do not know who has planned this tour - but whoever did deserves a medal . Everything just worked . Transition between lush Vancouver mainland , to the fertile Okanagan valley then passing through the Rockies and epic glacial lakes … long drive coming back ( which didn't feel long at all thanks to the attractions on the way ), and then coming back finally to BC - every location we had a night stop at or even a rest stop made sense. Kelowna marked prairie climate . Banff and Jasper were the crown of the tour , just so they could be slightly diffused by Kamloops . There was a flow to it . Every location made sense , every rest stop gave opportunity to facilitate backpackers who were on a tight budget and allowed bit luxury for those who could splurge a bit more . Very important message to the owners of the company - listen to your operators . They know when things work and when the need improvement . There was / is a plan - and our guide adhered to it 100%. That being said I really liked the freedom given to our guide to adjust the itinerary when Needed.Through the tour , when forest fires caused air in Kamloops to be unbreathable , Janelle( our guide , but about her in a moment ) decided to change hikes around - and it worked !!! We saw waterfalls and lakes that maybe were not in initial plan - but completed the tour beautifully . Extracurricular activities There are / were: Gondola over Banff . Solid 9/10 . Gondola itself as cool as it was ,was nothing in comparison to the view over the city. Perfect morning trip, that prepared us for more things to come . Hike over ice fields ( glacier tour) 10/10 3 major melting glaciers created “ice fields “ a sheet of ice covering a valley.This trip was cool from the beginning to the end. ( you HAVE to see vehicles they use to climb the glacier - I felt like a little kid again ) Don’t forget to bring your bottle for the water from the glacier -purest water you will ever try . Lake tour over maligne lake - 11/10 . I must admit I was pretty skeptical over doing a cruise over a glacial lake- I mean what’s so special about another blue hued lake ( we saw 3 over the trip) . Wrong . I was convinced by my wife to do it and I am glad we did it . A valley with an emerald lake in the middle surrounded by glaciers will give one of the most picturesque vistas in the world . I don’t imagine any human alive that wouldn’t be moved by it . Personal favorite of the tour . Jasper stargazing . - cannot grade didn’t attend it . Both me and my wife did identical activity in our home Ontario and we felt it would be redundant . I half regret not going as it probably was pretty good. Accommodations Exceeded our expectations. Every hostel was clean , and through the tour every consecutive hostel was getting better and better. Every hostel provided us with Breakfest ( yey) , except jasper Where we could buy it . Jasper had best quality wise hostel , but I am guessing it was probably also the most expensive as it was simply brand spanking new . I know hotels with worse quality than those hostels .Bus was new , had air condition , was cleaned and sanitized daily . USB ports in the seats were a nice addition . Ideal for first timers ! Staff We had a team- tour leader and part time driver Janelle , and her young sidekick - Hayden. They made the tour the experience it was and I do not imagine it without them . Janelle is/ was a perfect example of how professional veteran of tourism industry should be. She knew a lot about the region , it’s history , ecosystem and culture . At every rest stop we could count on her to point out places of interests. And she had that spark that motivated people to “ make the moose out of life “ ( reference to a book one of my friends bought on the tour). She took part of every activity and you could feel that she had fun doing it . Some people do their job because they must - but she does it because she loves it . And it shows . I met many guides In My travels but she beats them all by a long shot . I still can’t believe that she run the trip AND drove all of us . It’s a hell of a skill. Overall- (tldr) Why are you reading this ? Whether you are a seasoned globetrotter , or beginner backpacker this tour is for you . Stop reading start booking it’s 10 /10 and if you don’t believe me read other reviews . This trip is worth every penny because of people running it . If you worry about hostels - don’t - they are nice , clean and safe .itinerary is pure gold . I cannot emphasize how good this experience was . Book it already !!!

Just got back from taste of the wild 4 night trip led by the brilliant Jenelle & Hayden. Couldn’t fault any part of the trip and our guides became our friends. Jenelle is the absolute BEST and went out of her way for us again and again. Saw amazing stuff and made great memories! P.s. we saw a moose and it was amazing!!!
