Benefit from a professional tour guide's knowledge
Would you like to benefit from insider tips but not necessarily hire a guide for the day? This is for you!
We will spend 2 hours together at the start of your trip working on enhancing your journey in the Rockies. I will bring maps and local knowledge to the discussion, to help you personalize your journey.
This is like hiring a tour guide, benefiting from all the recommendations but travelling independently.
I used to work for the Banff Information Centre then started running my own tour company, and have been doing this for 8 years now. I guide visitors around Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper all summer. I have tried almost all activities and restaurants in the area.
I can help you choose between options, to optimize your itinerary.
I believe in sharing local knowledge and insider tips, to enhance visitor experience!
