    My walking tour went ahead even though I was the only person, so I was pleasantly surprised by that. Bruce was very knowledgeable and interesting, and not clock watching. A very good introduction to Banff.

    Thank you so much for leaving a review of your Banff walking tour! We try to make a little magic happen, even when we have a very small group. Because our tours are not based on a script — only personalized answers — a smaller group (even one special guest!) means we have an even better conversation, and can get right to what you need to know about Banff and beyond. We’re grateful for your warm words, and happy to know that we’d helped to introduce you to the best of Banff! ~Bruce and team

    My family and I took this tour with Bruce and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bruce is knowledgeable, very personable, is a wealth of information on Banff and has loads of patience. We appreciate that he was not checking his wristwatch for the time (he exceeded the 1.5 hrs guideline)

    We’re so grateful for your recommendation! Thank you, from Bruce and the team! We were privileged to be able to introduce your family to Banff. The small group, combined with great weather, made it possible to capture some unique photos. It’s always SO much fun when we’re able to do that! You’re so right—we do include history highlights—but our guided walking tour is really about the “here and now” in Banff. It’s a very personalized experience, that lets us connect you to nature, to local culture and to other interesting and exciting things to do while you’re here. Thanks again, and warmest wishes from Banff! ~Bruce
