I don't normally write good reviews because they don't add much to what has already been said but I will make an exception here. This trip was excellent, the best part of our trip to Banff. The guide was very good, not only with his knowledge of the river, but also with tips on Canmore. Highly recommended.

Had a great afternoon floating down the bow river in Canmore. Great views of the three sisters and a very knowledgeable guide. I was with my 84 and 85 year old grandparents, Lucien (with assistance from Bow) helped assist my grandparents in the raft and ensured they were comfortable throughout the tour. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

We had a wonderfully relaxing float trip with Erin as our guide. It was a beautiful evening (6 pm trip). Erin shared many stories of the area and Canmore info. Our only regret was that the trip wasn’t longer. Good for all ages and abilities.

I managed to squeeze in a mid-Summer 2-night weekend escape to Canmore and wanted to try something a little different in the way of an organized & escorted tour, something accessible for a rank novice like myself yet offering a new view on the stunning scenery that surrounds this mountain town.

My pre-trip planning found "The Townie", a leisurely 1-hour tour with a 45-minute raft ride on the Bow River setting off from a launch point a short walk from Canmore's town centre with a ride back from the river exit point. There are 5 departures offered daily and I chose the latest, 6 PM tour hoping for a calm & warm Summer evening but it almost didn't happen as the warm & clear day gave way to a cloudy late afternoon with rain threatened.

Luckily for our small group, the rain held off and we enjoyed a calm river cruise with Tristian at the helm answering all our questions and sharing some local knowledge gained in his 20+ years guiding in the mountains. His stories and anecdotes really added to the experience which went by faster than the river's currents.

The big orange rafts are stable enough on the gentle Bow River that almost anyone can take part and views from the river are better than I'd imagined in confirming my excursion under a week in advance. And the quality-to-value ratio is awesome as I've paid far more for tours of far less quality.

In short, there's lots to like about this outing I'd recommend you jump onboard when in Canmore.

A great evening, well looked after and informative guide, Lucien. Stayed nice and dry going down the river. Stopped for photos on a gravel bank and suddenly 1-2 dozen Elk and calves come out of the banks and swim across the river - Amazing !!
