This review is for 3 day's of hiking in The Jasper area with Terri. Firstly, Terri was able to get an accurate sense of our hiking experience and energy levels and match them to some really excellent and scenic hikes, each one offering us different experiences, which made best use of our 3 days. Secondly, Terri is very knowledgable on local history, geology, flora and fauna. She gave in-depth information and brought things to life. She's a good conversationalist and storyteller. Thanks Karen and Richard
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I enjoyed your company so much!

Terri is knowledgeable, outgoing, and responsible. Can't thing of a negative thing to say. Can think of many positives.
We had a great day!! Terri was a great guide!! She provided a wealth of knowledge about the trails and history as well. She even took us to a few "hidden gems." She was very personable and made us all feel right at home. I highly recommend this tour!! Thanks Terri for a great day!!
Terri was a marvellous guide. She showed us some places off the touristic routes and gave us many information about the landscape and the vegetation. We enjoyed the day very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed guiding your family very much! Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip!
Terri's local knowledge and appreciation of nature and wildlife made for an informative and enjoyable day. Would highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jeff! So glad you got to see a bear!
Suzanne FoxUnited States
Terri took us and our two teenagers out for a day's hike. She was very knowledgeable about Jasper, the trails, the animals and the plants. We are an adventurous family and she found a hike that was both challenging, fun and beautiful. The hike to the Opal Summit from Maligne Lake was great. We were really fortunate to spot two grizzlies. The kids really enjoyed a fun way off the summit consisting of boot skiing down the loose scree and then sliding down some snow fields. Definitely fun and recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Suzanne, Stephen, Zach and Abbey. I acknowledge you for your incredibly adventurous spirits and outstanding spotting abilities! It was such a fun and memorable day!
Shana ElliottUnited States
We had a fun afternoon with Terri at the Columbia Icefields! She was so knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and glacier activity. She took us to a hidden secret waterfall that was amazing. We also did a great hike on Wilcox Pass that she recommended. I would love to tour with Terri again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I would love to spend more time with you and your beautiful family too Shana!
Terri was fantastic. Her local knowledge was exceptional. Our weather was challenging to say the least and she kept us entertained and showed us some amazing places that we will return to. Would not hesitate to recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kate! It was my pleasure! Hope to see you again!
Terri was an amazing guide. So in tune with her local surroundings and extremely knowledgeable about all things wildlife, flora and fauna. Our hike would have been great alone but with Terri guiding it was an amazing journey. Highly recommend booking with Terri.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you David! Please stay in touch!
Sam FurutaUnited States
Terri was a great plus to our trip. She is friendly and knowledgeable. She fit right in with everyone in our group. Her expertise made the trip a great success. I would highly recommend her for any group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Sam, I loved every moment! Thanks for bringing such a colorful group of people with such kind hearts! Hope to see you all again.
Terri was absolutely amazing as our tour guide for Jasper. She not only met our expectations she totally exceeded them. Her knowledge and ability to share that in a way that was interesting and humorous was great. We saw so much in one 8 hour tour we felt like we had a much longer experience in Jasper. I would recommend Terri 100% to anyone going to Jasper. I would also highly recommend ToursByLocals. Rosemary Cancilla

Glynne StanfieldUnited Kingdom
This was an excellent tour for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Terri knows an immense amount about the local,Jasper area and it's wildlife and imparted information in a fun and easily understood format. She found the moose we had been searching for!She understood the needs of kids. We would thoroughly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Glynne! It was a pleasure to share the highlights of Jasper with you and your lovely family!
Sonal DivechaUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Terri in Jasper. She was very knowledgeable about the animals, plants and history of the park. We took my kids, one of whom is handicapped, and she kept them entertained with stories and activities. She took us to more handicap accessible locations in the park. Also recommended wonderful places to go to in town. She was very patient with the booking process and all my multiple questions about the area and also about Banff. Thanks Terri!
Cindy GambleUnited States
Terri was amazing -- knowledgeable and friendly. We had one full day in Jasper and wanted to hit all the highlights. Terri made that possible and educated us on the history of the area and parks we visited. More than we expected. We highly recommend her for all of the Canadian Rockies.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cindy it was all my pleasure! You are such a passionate and positive soul. Was really fun to guide you,Kyrsta and Bruce. I am so glad to hear you had a good time. Hope you come back someday!
Emilio ColladoUnited States
Terri knows this area so well. She took into consideration our need to go slowly and rest often, but encouraged us to try to do some things that we might not have done without her descriptions of what we would be missing. I am not so brave, but am thrilled that I climbed Edith Cavell and the narrow path to Panther Falls.

We took a massive trip down the entire Ice Highway from Jasper to Lake Louise to Banff with Terri. She was just fantastic. And if you are hikers, you will sure be happy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks David! I enjoyed guiding you and your family! Mt.Rundle is waiting for you...
Amitabha SarmaUnited States
Terri was a real delight. She is really gifted with kids and our 8 and 6 year olds really enjoyed her. She gave our family two days of tours in the Lake Louise, Yoho, and Ice Fields Parkway areas. Great time. Very knowledgeable. Would recommend highly.
Terry is very knowledgeable and personable. She got along great with our group and was very engaging.
Carole B.United States
Terri was GREAT! Perfect blend of driving time (to allow us to see everything) and hiking time. She was very entertaining with local stories about the wild life/plants, history and famous visitors to the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carole! Really great to work with you and your well educated family!
Terri is a wonderful guide that is very adaptable to your personal tastes and abilities. She is very knowledgeable about the area, local wildlife, history, and was a great wealth of information for us to help determine activities for our remaining days in Jasper. We had a private day tour for two people and were really glad we launched our time in the park this way. Thank you Terri, for a fantastic day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marilyn and Paul! It was a pleasure showing you around. I am glad to hear you had an outstanding Easter week-end!
Galen VetterUnited States
We had a GREAT time! Our time in Canada was wonderful and most of that credit goes to our guide, Terri. She gave a personal touch which was appreciated. She shared information that we don't think we would have gotten on our own and we would have missed places if it wasn't for her. Thank you for a wonderful trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Galen! It was a pleasure!
Robert ByrdUnited States
Outstanding!! Terri was our guide for our party of three for five days in September 2016 in our rental car. She was an excellent driver, incredibly knowledgable, so friendly and never temperamental. She is very flexible and can cater the tour to any exertion level.She made our once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Canadian Rockies incredibly memorable!
John L.United States
Terri was a wonderful warm person. Her knowledge of the area and humorous anecdotes really gave all of those on her tour a good feeling of Tours by Locals and set the bar high for those guides who followed. She even planned a snowfall at an appropriate time on the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks John! You were such a warm and fun group that I would have loved to have more time with you all!
Nichiketa SaraniyaUnited States
Thanks for accommodating our request at the last min and providing wonderful guide the group was happy with her and enjoyed...we do regular groups to Jasper and Banff we look forward to work with you in future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure. I always enjoy the Indian groups and look forward to working with you!
Janas ByrdUnited States
Terri is exceptional. Her knowledge of the wildlife and geology of the area is top notch. She offered us options each day. We toured with her for four days and, more than once, I reflected on how easy she made the trip for us- no getting lost, choosing the quietest trails, carrying the bear spray:-). Traveling with kids and long hiking days could be a potential for trouble.Not with Terri- the kids loved her and she kept them moving, with cute bear jokes. We will be returning to Canada and booking Terri!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Janice. I look forward to guiding you again!
Marianne Ford-DisseveltUnited Kingdom
Terri took us up to Edith Cavell Meadows, where we were the only hikers around. Snow still covered many meadows and the view of Angel Glacier was phenomenal. A friendly and interesting person, Terri has a calm authority which we would have trusted in any circumstance. Don't think we would have tackled this hike on our own, but with under Terri's guidance we could relax and just enjoy. An amazing day hike...hope we can do another one with you Terri! Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marianne! I loved every moment!
Elizabeth VaughanUnited Kingdom
Enjoyable day, steep climb but spectacular view at the top and Terri was very patient letting us go at our own pace. We drove through a good valley for wild life on our way to the walk and we were lucky enough to see two black bears. On return she added a trip to an amazing canyon, interesting to go with a local guide and we also appreciated her advice on where else to go round the Jasper area to see wild life.
Caroline WhittakerUnited Kingdom
Huge thanks to Terri for a fantastic tour which included wildlife sightings and a staggeringly beautiful walk up to see the Angel glacier at Mt Edith Cavell with views over the Tonquin Valley. Terri was extremely knowledgable about the geology, ecology and history of the areas we visited and was able to go at our pace with plenty of time to take in the breathtaking views and stop for photographs. I would highly recommend Terri and Tours by locals, our day was the highlight of our week in the Rockies.
Very nice 3 days hicking tour to the Dave Henry lodge. During the whole trip we did not see any other persons. Only nature... Amazing.
Terri was a terrific guide for our day around Jasper. She had a wealth of information available and tailored the day to suit our needs at a pace that made the day very enjoyable. Terri is a lovely, easy-gping person and we would strongly recommend her to others who want a more personalised tour that takes in wildlife, scenery and the delights of Jasper National Park.
Ashok AtluriUnited States
Teri was nowledgeable,patient,pleasant & understood the requirements of the tour party. She showed us many scenic spots in Jasper, ice field parkway, Lake Louis, Yoho national park and Banff. We are all 60+ and without her guidance and encouragement we could not have undertaken the climb of Whistler mountain in Jasper which is a life time achievement . We have taken a short walk in the wilderness which is an forgettable moment in our lives.Because of her we could see wild life.She made our tour memorable.
Gail UhligUnited States
Terri was great.. We saw much wildlife and some exceptionally beautiful scenery. Terri was a wealth of knowledge about the area.. Our only regret is that we weren't physically able to do more hiking..
Winkler WeinbergUnited States
Terri was fantastic! In true "local" fashion, she led us on routes that were hardly trodden and special. She knew exactly where the wildlife was and when they were going to be there. She was a pleasure to spend time with and judiciously balanced the individual desires of the party. Well done! She made us want to take more tours by locals in the future. Wink Weinberg
R. Barry WalsonUnited States
Teri is an excellent guide particularly those who wish to get up close and personal with nature as she knows all the hiking trails from easy to advanced.
Terri took us on an excellent 7+ hour tour that was so enjoyable we had no idea how long we were gone until it was over. She was an excellent source of local information and geography. We're sold on tours like this!
Thomas WrightUnited States
Terri was a great guide. She was prompt,very friendly and knowledgable about all things we wished to see and know, including history of the area, geology, plants and animals, etc. She customized our tour to agree with our physical abilities. We were very comfortable with her. The "tips" she gave us about stops to make, and "must" sees after leaving her on our way back to Lake Louise made our experience in the Canadian Rockies better than if we had missed them. We loved our whole trip.
