We loved our tour - there was 9 of us for a work trip and went canoeing to see some sights. Some in our group had never been and we all had a great time. Our guide, Ryan, was knowledgeable and funny. He pointed out the mountains in the area and provided lots of information about Banff and the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend the tour.

Great tour in lovely Bow River Valley with an outstanding guide. Even if we got soaked from above and did not saw much wildlife it was an amazing experience.

Very good family activity. We really enjoyed it. Liam was a great tour guide.
