I was looking for something to do in Jasper and when I saw that there was a food tour, I jumped at the chance as I love trying new restaurants and discovering new foods. The day before my tour, I received a text from Estelle (founder) that I was the only one that signed up for the Oct 25th tour and if I would like to switch it to the 26th as there was 10+ people for that session and she thought that would give me a different experience. She left the ball in my court as to which one I preferred and I opted to keep the Tuesday date. I am so happy I did, as I felt I got the VIP treatment from the tour guide, Hilary! Estelle was so quick in responding to my texts and was so pleasant to deal with.

Mike was super fun and knowledgeable! He was also very kind and made sure we were warm and comfortable throughout the entire tour. His stories are very fascinating and he did a great job at making this tour feel very spooky. Would definitely recommend to skeptics or followers, great for solo travelers or families. Would recommend wearing comfortable shoes and in winter wearing warm clothes because you will be walking all around Banff!

Amazing food tour. Food was delicious and perfectly portioned. Hilary the tour guide was knowledgeable and great to talk to

Our guide Mike was so informative. He shared stories and history. Thanks Mike we had fun! I recommend
