“Wonderful hiking in the Rockies”
Reviewed 3 October 2016

This was a holiday of a lifetime courtesy of HF Holidays and guides Dave Honeyman and Ward Cameron . Dave and Ward orchestrated our two week hiking brilliantly . They know the area intimately and were skilled at recognising the capability of the group and tailoring walks to suit . We walked every day around Banff , Jasper , Lake Louise and Kananaskis and Dave and Ward quietly encouraged us to achieve to reach some summits even when the going got tough . The hiking routes were sensational even on the odd occasion when the weather closed in and we were fortunate to walk when the larches were on the turn . At the start Dave promised us the best holiday we have ever had - and he delivered . A truly memorable time - thank you to Dave , Ward & HF Holidays

Vic and Theresa;
We are so glad that your time here met with your expectations (and beyond).
Sure hope to see you again here in the not to distant future to further explore our Canadian Rocky Mountains. Perhaps during the spring summer season for more wildlife viewing and of course our famous alpine flower meadows.
All the best 'til then, happy trails,
Dave

Along with his sidekick Ward Cameron who himself is another great guy they arrange everthing that is needed for a Fantastic holiday. Our heartfelt thanks to both of you.

Hello Philip and Jill, we appreciate you finding the time to put down a few thoughts about your recent experience here in the Rockies. It sure was a wonderful time and we sure did cover a lot of ground. Glad to see you made it back to the "mother country" in one piece.
Take care the both of you!

“Canadian Rockies hiking holiday.”
Reviewed 29 September 2016

Just had a superb holiday in the Canadian Rockies with Dave and his colleague, Ward. Both were excellent guides and walks leaders with a wealth of local knowledge. The pace and difficulty of the walks was well suited to the ability of the group and included the opportunity for the more energetic members to reach higher summits. Although the weather was mostly very good, Dave always had alternative plans for an enjoyable day. This was an outstanding holiday, probably the best we have ever experienced.

“Fabulous 2 weeks guided by Dave....”
Reviewed 26 September 2016

Just returned from Canada having spent 2 weeks on an HF Holiday in the Rockies. Dave H guided our group throughout, and it quickly became evident that his local knowledge and vast experience was key to making this holiday one of the best ever! Despite the varying abilities of our (somewhat grey-haired!) group, Dave tailored each day to suit everyone. We always managed a great day out ,even if the weather wasn't always kind!! His professionalism and humour is such that we will seek him out again.....

Thank you folks for the kind words and I'm glad to see you made it home unscathed by the looks of it. It was especially nice to get you up a couple of our famous walk up trekking peaks and to achieve not only a summit with you (Indian Ridge) in Jasper but also with your wife and yourself as well (Mount Fairview) during our days in Lake Louise.
We really did have a wonderful tour with lots of unique experiences and a really great group. Hope to host you over this way again soon. Until then ... happy trails!!
Dave

“If you're looking for a Guide, you've found one!”
Reviewed 24 September 2016

I met Dave when I was on a trip to the Canadian Rockies with HF Holidays. He is sensitive, thoughtful and tactful as well as being very knowledgeable about the mountains, lakes, flora and fauna. He gave me some useful mountain walking tips as I am not quite as fit as I should be. He made our trip very memorable and enjoyable, so look no further if you want a few outings tailor made to your needs and capabilities.

Thank you for the thumbs up Alicearmy! We really did a have a great two week holiday and sure did see a lot. With a dusting of snow in the peaks and the fall colours, I'm sure you will have lots of pics to remember your time here. The grizzly bears on the last day while having lunch in Kananaskis was a special treat.
All the best!!
