Best money spent in Park!

This was by far the best thing we did in Banff. We've been several times to the park, but having Linda drive and discuss all the interesting things we were seeing was the absolute best. Safe driving. Interesting talk. Perfect timing. Such a lovely way to relax, enjoy the scenery, and learn at the same time!

Best Tour and Best tour Guide!

This was one of the best tours ever! Basically due to the very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide, Tyler. He told the best stories along the way, and was very attentive to everyone. Since we had s small group of 5, I feel we got even more personalized attention. So going on September 6, after a lot of people were home and back at school was perfect timing. The stories about the wildlife in the area and his own personal encounters were wonderful. The scenery at Lake Louise and Moraine were amazing, and breathtaking. I had heard a lot about Lake Louise, but when you see both these iconic places in person, you feel like it’s a dream. The deep tourquise blue at Moraine was stunning. Highly recommend this tour and Tyler

Recommended excursion!

A very nice tour with a lot of information. The organization and implementation were impeccable. A small misunderstanding regarding the pickup location could be clarified quickly by email. Our guide (Kelsey) was easy to understand and with her open-minded nature made for a pleasant atmosphere and provided plenty of information about the country and its people. (very funny)
