Our Guide Jacob was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining as well. He was well prepared with equipment such as bear spray , bug spray etc. He was very carful to check with us if we were ok with state of the paths , as it had just rained and the paths were muddy etc . We learned a lot of the historical information and environmental information etc . Very interesting and educational . We would recommend this tour , and if we come back to Banff would take this tour again . Thank you again to Jacob

This tour is both informative and full of great stories. Jacob our tour guide was able to bring visual pictures of the past, so we were able see changes in the landmark. Also he is very passionate in telling stories of the "Cowboys" Legends then and now. The walk was no problem and kept on schedule.

Thanks so much to Jacob for taking us on a guided walk even though I know how busy all the guides have been. We absolutely loved the walk and got to see parts of Banff that we otherwise wouldn't have seen and learnt so much too. Brilliant way to spend an afternoon

My husband and I took this tour our first day in Banff! Best decision! Jacob our guide was fenominal in every way! We learned so much about Banff and he helped us line out must see places to see while we’re here!

Jacob was an excellent guide providing lots of great information. He ensured we were all comfortable with the walk and surroundings. Well done & thank you Jacob!
