“Yummy Yummy!!! Great Job!!”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

Let me say first... thank you for the hospitality!! Great job gentlemen. This tour was fantastic and the two gentlemen who ran the tour epitomize the Western Canadian hospitality we had read so much of. The tour was great, and the food fantastic, but you could really tell these two where "from around here"!! They had great ideas and insight into the local area and due to the informal setting we had the opportunity to learn from other travelers as to what they really liked... and didn't, in the local area. "banff for dummies" as it were in a three hour tour.
This tour definitely added to our experience in the park and have recommended it, and the great town of Banff, Ab as a must do when in the area.
Thanks guys!!

“Great value and fun way to explore Banff Restaurants”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

Tour started at the Cascade Gardens which was a beautiful start. It was a walking tour but everything was close by and easy walking even while we had our baby with us. Food is the main goal of the tour but historical sites and local geography was also pointed out by our knowledgeable guide. There was a good variety of restaurants with some tasty surprises from some. There are so many restaurants in Banff and we wanted to use this to plan our next few nights. We got lots of great options. Guide was willing to talk about other restaurants not on the tour. We got Good Value between the food and Drinks and would tell anyone to start their stay with Banff food Tours

“Perfect way to indulge and enjoy an afternoon in the Town of Banff!”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

Being a native Calgarian, I have taken for the granted the lovely scenery and restaurants Banff has to offer. With the Banff Food Tours I was able to enjoy a wonderful sampling of food and drink at six great restaurants in the Town of Banff.

The tour was approximately 3 hours long and it was a nice casual walk starting from Cascade Garden along the main strip of Banff. During our tour we learned about the history of Banff and enjoyed the company of our tour mates. The guide was friendly and relaxed and encouraged us to socialize along the tour. The highlight of the tour was obiviously the food! We enjoyed a culinary experience in our 6 stops that ranged from relaxed pub fare to fine Italian dining. I must mention the very generous portions of food and spirits that each restaurant provided as well. Definitely a fantastic value considering the portions and quality of the food. Overall it's was a wonderful way to enjoy a day at Banff!

Highly recommended to anyone (who like myself) considers themselves as a "foodie" or just wants a way to spend a lovely afternoon in one of the most beautiful towns in the world.

“A side of Banff you won't see on your own!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

Wow! As a person from Calgary I have seen the ins and outs (or what I thought were the ins and outs) of Banff but still learned SOOOO much . Not only did we get a guided tour of Banff and learned history about the buildings and various locations, we also got to see numerous locations where food and drink are served and also taste and drink at these locations!

Very delicious, unique and interesting location that we had stopped at and I can honestly say that I will be back at these restaurant locations in the future. Even the portions were filling and by the end I had to move my belt down a notch....And I am a person that can eat! Various dfferent types of foods from finger food/pub food to classy meals with utensils and chopsticks!

Value for the tour.....well considering that you would pay double for the same amount of food or drink that we had consumed....minus the tour, great company and educational experience.....I would say the tour does a much better job all around and for a better bang for your buck!

Thank you for the wonderful experience and I look forward to doing this tour again in the future!

“I would do it again!”
Reviewed 22 July 2011

I went on this tour last weekend with my friend and even though I have been to Banff before the 6 unbelievable restaurants on our stops, I didn’t even know it existed. Our guide was great; he was attentive to everyone and was funny too. The tour was very low-key, where people are encouraged to socialize with each other, so I met some really nice people. He was also really knowledgeable and we got to learn some history about Banff and at the same time sampled some amazing food at the restaurants we stopped at. If someone had an allergy or something to an item on the menu, they were very accommodating, which I found was great. I definitely would be back to some of the restaurants I tried and recommend this tour to my family and friends.
