Greg was extremely knowledgeable and knows the Canadian Rockies like the back of his hand. He's flexible, listens, and tailors his tours to what his clients want. We saw breathtaking views, got within 10 feet of grizzlies and big horn sheep, took some moderate hikes, and had great meals at interesting places. If you want extreme hiking, he can do that. If you want no hiking, seeing all the "must do" tourist spots, and shopping and great restaurants, he can do that too. And anything in between.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert. We were very fortunate to be able to safely observe such amazing wildlife from our vehicle and without another person or car in sight. Thank you for heeding my motto of "exit the vehicle, enter the food chain" and giving these animals the space that they need. It truly was an amazing 5 days travelling with you. I'm glad you enjoyed our tour.

Greg suggested a great hike for my daughter and I near Banff. Greg was great and was very patient in my continuous emails to try and nail down the right hike. Please use Greg for any hike you might desire in the Canadian Rockies' area. Alan and Lauren
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan. I'm glad my suggestions led you to places you enjoyed. Come back any time. It was a pleasure hiking with you and Lauren.
What an amazing tour. This tour was custom designed by Greg to show me some of Calgarys local nature spots. Greg is knowledgeable about a vas number of topics. I learn't a lot about safety - what to watch for, things you can eat, history - how the flood affected the land scape. We examined different animal tracks and the list could go on. He has a great sense of humour, he understands that when he falls it's pretty funny. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Greg.

Greg was an excellent guide. He worked with us, via email, before we arrived to determine the best hike location and duration. He was well informed regarding the local area, geology and topography. We would recommend him to anyone wanting a great, well organized hike and fascinating information.

We (my wife and I) were very pleased with Greg's knowledge, friendliness, professionalism, and the custom tour he planned for us. His tour enabled us to see the beauty of the area when Aspen was in full color as we had hoped. We we're both very stressed over not receiving our luggage but we're able to relax and forget our problem for the day (Sunday, Sept 18, late afternoon until sundown - 4 hrs) We would recommend him to anyone coming to the Canadian Rockies without reservation.

Greg was my appointed Tours by Locals hiking guide in Canmore, and I highly recommend Greg as a friendly, professional and knowledgeable guide. He was well prepared for the unpredictable mountain weather conditions. Greg recommended a day hike to Chester Lake, and it was a lot of fun and just what I was hoping for. We had spare time after the hike, so Greg included a mountain sight seeing road trip as a bonus - the views were exhilarating! I will definitely request Greg as a guide when I return.

Great way to see and learn about Canada's landscape, we learnt so much and the guide was so easy to get along with and very accommodating with extra supplies such as hats and gloves we had a fantastic time and would highly recommend

Greg had gone to tremendous trouble to choose a suitable not too strenuous walk as requested, the views were wonderful and Greg was extremely informative on both the wild life and the plants we saw, he chose a walk off the beaten track and he opened our eyes to what was around eg the bear claws on a tree. He tailored the walk to make it a really memorable day, he was enthusiastic and went the extra mile especially with the surprise at lunchtime, and the cold flannels and iced water at the end.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind feedback Elizabeth. I'm glad you enjoyed the fondue and our trip together. Enjoy the rest of your travels!
