    Best day roadtrip ever! It was my first time in Alberta and given a tight schedule, I was looking at various day trip options with the most robust schedule. Gordon’s trip was by far the best in terms of hitting all the key sight-seeing spots within the budgeted time, as well as being super engaging with a local person’s commentary to supplement the tour. Some of the best features of the tour that went beyond my expectations were Gordon’s great personality and hands-on involvement in the tour. Definitely recommend for all, even for those coming from abroad who might be afraid to book tours you’re not introduced to through home travel agencies. Safe, fun, efficient and engaging. Really had a great time!

    We booked the eBike tour and hike to Johnson Canyon. The eBikes were fun and made the ride easy. Scott was our friendly and informative guide and he made sure we had a great time.

    You bike from Banff to Johnson Canyon and then hike up to the first set of falls in the Canyon. A shuttle brings you back to their shop in Banff.

    We made frequent stops at overlooks along the way and at one picnic area for a potty stop. We did have a bit of excitement on our trip as we had to detour to the 'high' road when a large black bear was making his way up the 'low' road towards us. Scott stopped and let us all see the bear and then hurried us along so the bear could continue on his way and not have to detour around us. He showed his respect for wildlife. I'm sure this doesn't happen all the time but it made for a great memory for us!

    A fun time and even though you are on eBikes you actually do get some exercise. These aren't throttle bikes but rather pedal assist bikes. Still pretty easy though and I recommend trying out one of their trips.

    Rosalyn was the best guide ever, she was encouraging, informative and so friendly!! The 9.4 KM hike was beautiful every step of the way and we even got a bonus hike to Marble Canyon because we did the hike in record time.

    Our Lake Louise/ Moraine Lake tour with May was exceptional. She was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The hike description says Easy, but it can be quite challenging in spots, fortunately she had provided us with walking sticks. Our tour was quite small, only 5 and the guide, and we were able to ask questions and talk to the others in the group easily. The lunch was so good! I would recommend white Mtn adventures and May any day!

    I’m sure my rating would be higher but the wildfire smoke and subsequent rain made sightseeing difficult. Pretty place but the resort hotel we stayed at was too far from the village.

    I was a little slower than the rest of the group but he was very accommodating and didn’t make me feel like i was holding everyone up

    This was an awesome trip!! I liked everything included in the itinerary. It really allowed us to explore what Canada has to offer. I especially loved the mountains there, I had no idea Canada had any! Visiting Lake Morain and its turquoise water is a must do as well, which this tour includes. Great planning by Charlie and his company.

    Having done an ice walk in Jasper previously, we were excited at the prospect of another outing. Our guide, Anick, was friendly, funny, personable and very knowledgeable. Our family appreciated the extra insights into the ecology, history, and geology of the canyon - something we wouldn't have enjoyed without her help. And we definitely would have walked right past the petroglyphs and never learned the fascinating history associated with the markings matching those found in the southwestern US. Thanks for a great experience!

    Had the trip cancelled by the operator within 12 hours of going and not given a reason why. Even though it still remains on the website as bookable.

    We had a great time on our canyoning trip with Chris! He was very helpful and patient with us. It was just our family of 4 and the weather was perfect. The hike in to the canyon was a little more than we bargained for but we made it fine (it was a breeze for our twenty something daughters of course). The wet suits were much appreciated as the temperature dropped as you got higher up in the canyon and the water was VERY cold. We all had hiking boots on which was helpful but be prepared for them to be soaked as you will be landing/sliding in to waist deep water. Definitely a fun bucket list activity!

    Kris was a fantastic tour guide, he was very patient with me as I had never done canyoning before and I was a little apprehensive. He was informative, friendly and an absolute joy to spend the day with. This canyoning itself was great even for a first timer with terrible balance skills. It was an incredibly fun day and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

    Super fun and exhilarating. This was my first time canyoning! Guillaume and his guides taught us step by step how to rappel safely. My favourite part was going down the waterfall! This is a must do if you're in the area. Everything is provided, you just show up and have fun!
