Fabulous Day Trip!

Awesome guided tour from Pete through Lake Louise and Plain of Six Glaciers! Definitely provided so much knowledge about Canadian history / landscape evolution, as well as personal stories and recommendations for our trip. Great overall tour group, and he did a good job of getting the group chatting and getting to know one another. One of the highlights of our trip! The recs he provided also allowed my friend and I to enjoy other restaurants, and day time hiking activities that we may not have otherwise tried. 10/10 recommend!!
Loved the Day

Pete was a great guide. He was very in tune to our abilities and made the big hike manageable for my husband and I who are seniors. It was a big day for us but we loved the hike and scenery. Had a nice lunch in a beautiful setting.
Excellent hike!

We hiked Johnston Canyon. Loved the catwalk along Johnston creek! Gorgeous waterfalls and great photo opportunities! Thibeau was our guide and he was excellent! Once at the top of the canyon we saw the ink pots and had lunch, which was great, by the Johnston Creek. Worth the hike!

The hike was great but the forest was ordinary. A regular forest juts like we know them. Don't expect to see blue water or amazing rivers. It was a normal forest with great trees and vegetation. The guide a girl for once XD was really nice and informative. It wasn't what i expected but still, it was nice.

What a fabulous outing. We hiked Johnston Canyon right up to the Ink Pots. Becky, our guide, shared great information about the area, and allowed plenty of time to catch the sights. Lunch up at the Ink Pots was nearly as enjoyable as the scenery.
