“Don't leave Jasper without doing a tour with Joe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We took 2 different tours with Joe while we were in Jasper. He really knows his stuff and has real passion for where he lives and the wildlife he shares it with. He is very funny too - you learn a lot from him because he tells it in such a fun way. He really knows where the wildlife hang out and is determined to show you as much as he possibly can. We whizzed all over the place - it felt like a real adventure. He was so sure that there was a male elk in some woods so he returned twice to see if we could see him. We were so lucky that on our second visit we saw 2 male elks rutting. It was very exciting and a bit scary! When the fight was over he managed to find the loser feeling very sorry for himself. I am sure that last thing that poor elk needed was a minibus of tourists taking pictures of him in his humiliation! I think Joe was as excited as we were and he has seen it all before! We also took the Maligne Lake tour with him. We felt we really got to know so much about Jasper that we would have missed out on if we toured around ourselves. It was the highlight of our Canadian holiday

“Amazing wildlife search, awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Joe is a very nice person as a guide. He knows a lot about all the wildlife in Jasper National Park and the places where to look. We've seen lots of elk, bighorn sheep and even a wolf! We've had a wonderful search which lasted almost four hours. Absolutely fabulous!

“Joe Knows Where To Find The Wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

The wildlife tour with Joe and the Jasper Tour Company was a highlight of our trip to the Canadian Rockies (Banff, Jasper and Yoho). Joe promptly picked us up at our hotel and gave us some history and background of the town as we picked up other people for the tour. On this tour we saw elk in several different locations, a large herd of bighorn sheep on a ridge near a lake and a smaller group closer into town and several deer. Joe also pointed out a bald eagle perced in the trees adjacent to where we saw the larger herd of bighorn sheep and an osprey near the river in town. Neither of which would we have spotted on our own. Up to this point we had seen no large wildlife in Banff or Yoho and had only a quick elk encounter on the drive into Jasper.

Joe is a very knowlegable and entertaining guide. Believe me, you'll see more wildlife on a tour than you will on your own. If you only do one wildlife tour in the Canadian Rockies, this should be it.

“Wild with Joe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Joe provides an excellent educational wildlife tour.
Thanks to Joe, my family and I were able to get close to coyotes, ospreys, eagles, elk, mountain goats and sheep, and black bear!
Not only is Joe informative about the various animals we encountered, but also about the history, geography, geology and biology of the area of the Jasper National Park we toured.
He has a great sense of humour and shares memorable stories.
He picked us up and dropped us off at our accommodations; the consummate host/guide!
Highly recommended on all accounts!

“Awesome Tour Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

If you enjoy seeing wildlife in their natural habitat and want to learn a little more about the local animals in Jasper, this is the tour to take and Joe is an outstanding guide who makes the sightseeing interesting and fun at the same time! We saw coyotes, lots of big horn sheep, several elk and even an elk with christmas lights on its antlers (obviously an accident!). You can tell he loves what he does and he tries his very best to make sure everyone gets to leave with some great memories of Jasper. After leaving Jasper, we traveled to Banff and we made sure to recommend this tour to those we saw headed to Jasper. We have traveled a great deal over the years and have had many tours and Joe's tour was the best one we have ever taken!!!
