The Banff historical walk is an informative and beautiful walk around the Cave and Basin area of Banff. Our guide showed up dressed in historic gear from the era the park was founded (1885). From the start he gave us an option of two tour routes, one with muddy trails, one on mostly paved trails. We went with the muddy trails, but it was appreciated that he gave us a choice. The tour was very interesting giving a history of the founding of Canada’s first National Park, the city of Banff, and the ties to railroads, some questionable characters, and Victorian tourism. The tour was sprinkled with humor, history, and some ecological facts. Highly recommend if you are interested in history presented with humor with breathtaking views.
