Went on the Johnston Canyon morning tour with Neil. He was awesome! Very friendly, lots of interesting information about the area. The area is very beautiful serene and multiple waterfalls. So glad they provided cleats cause there were lots of icy areas and we saw tons of people sliding around in regular shoes. Would def book with this group again!... More

Shambolic. Despite receiving an email from them yesterday confirming details of our dog sledding trip today (booked weeks ago), they failed to collect us this morning. They then claimed they "didn't receive our booking" before eventually offering a refund. So disappointing.

Everything was exactly as described and we had a wonderful experience dog sledding in Lake Louise with Kingmik. The dog mushers were excellent (as were the dogs, of course). Even as "dog people" with some knowledge, we learned a lot from the mushers during the tour. What's most important, although it is commercial of course, we got the impression that... More

Visiting the Johnson Canyon walking in a quiet and snowy environment, and discovering frozen waterfalls on the trail is a breathtaking experience. And if your guide is the funny, skilled, talkative and friendly Norm you'll surely have a great day!

Visiting Banff on a ski trip, but decided to take a day off to do something else. This was a great decision! After a quick lesson in the car park off we went walking up alongside the canyon. Learning facts about the history, geology in a fun lighthearted way. We stopped for a hot chocolate and maple taffy made in... More

We had a road closure on our way to Kicking Horse and Christian handled it perfectly. He was a great guide and I would highly recommend the tour and Christian as a driver.

We did the snowshoeing with Hugh earlier today and absolutely loved it. The experience was really fun and the marble canyon was beautiful. The addition of traditional Canadian-inspired treats and hot drinks half way through made the whole experience even better. Hugh is a fantastic guide. He is very knowledgable and made every bit of the trip even better (even... More

My friend and I snowshoed with a great group and fabulous guide, Becky, on Valentines Day. It was a lovely mix of people from all over the world. Becky made everyone feel welcome with her inclusive style. She was prepared and polished, and knowledgable about Canadian history, mountain names, and interesting random facts. Her and her helpers made us gooey... More
