This was the perfect one day intro to Banff! I had booked this trip last minute because I did not want to leave Calgary without seeing the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. From start to finish our tour guide Kevin made the day an amazing an intimate tour of one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. He was kind and personable and made us all feel welcomed like family. He made sure we got some amazing views of the scenery and wildlife. He was very knowledgeable of the area, was mindful of our safety when trying to view wildlife, and you. You could tell that he loves what he does and he loves the Canadian Rockies. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who loves the outdoors, amazing scenery, wildlife, breathtaking vistas, and hanging out with a cool tour guide for the day.

This tour is really fun and an amazing experience. Kevin has interesting stories to tell and is very familiar with the area. He took us to his secret spots (shhhh) and we enjoyed all the stops. Best fun was watching Nick on our tour take a dip at Two Jack Lake which still had some snow in the area. Burrr. If you want a great tour guide, excellent stops and a small group then this is the tour for you!

Kevin is the best host, guide and explorer who shares his secret places, his passion for the mountains and his friendliness with people. He limits his tours to five people or fewer so that he can get to know the group and the group can get to know each other.

My wife and I toured end-April and had a full day seeing sights, doing some hikes, looking for eagles, elk, bear and other wildlife. It was like being on a fun outing with friends.

Kevin has a great base plan and then tailors the stops and duration by the group’s interests.

Fabulous guide and fascinating stories along the route. Six stars out of five if that were allowed!

We had a fantastic day, on this fully charged day. Kevin is an amazing guide, is passionate and personalize the excursion. This is not a regular day trip when you are one of the big group in a bus.
Kevin accept a maximum of 5 people are a time, so you get to see plenty more than a regular tour.
The Rockies are simply unbelievably majestic!
We went to late Minnewanka, Canmore, Banff, Two jacks lake, Emerald lake and Lake Louise.
I strongly recommend this tour and hope to take another one soon.

Kevin is a fantastic tour guide, and person... he is very friendly, funny, and entertaining! You can tell he is passionate about his job as a tour guide, and that he loves nature and the mountains. His enthusiasm is contagious.

On this day tour, Kevin took us to the beautiful sights around Banff and the national park... as well as lesser-known viewpoints and photo stops! We saw amazing scenery, and wildlife. During the tour, he shares stories and gives information on the history and culture of the areas. It’s a full day tour, with a small group, and is great value for the money.
I would highly recommend Kevin, and his tour company!

~ Thank you... hope to see you again! (Daniela S.)

It’s hard not to like Kevin. He’s someone who left the corporate world to share his love of Banff with visitors. There wasn’t a moment where I felt like he was just “doing a job.” He’s legitimately excited to be there, he tells funny stories, and he’s obviously very knowledgeable about the park. I completely recommend booking this experience, worth every penny.

An amazing experience! Kevin was such a wonderful guide. I had very high expectations for my trip, and he exceeded every expectation. He made every turn fun. Every trip is unique, he knows so much about the area, you’re constantly getting fun facts and history as you drive through the Rockies. He made the trip so enjoyable! I would 100% book him for a tour again. What a unique experience! The ONLY way to experience Banff. Thank you again Kevin!! Until next time!! ✌️

Amazing Trip to remember. The group is only 5 people so its almost a private tour. Timing at each stop is perfect. Kevin shared with us all details about the areas of our interest. We spent such an amazing day !
