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!

A really nice day shared with Tibo our guide and another traveller. Tibo gave us all his attention, knowledge and affability throughout. He was always attentive to what we needed. Lovely hike to the base of Stanley Glacier and all completed before the rain began!!

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.

Lake Louise is spectacular, but it can be really busy so getting there without driving is one of the big advantages of a tour traffic and parking can be a hassle. I appreciated that I was able to book this guided hike less than 24 hours in advance even though they ask for more notice on their website. Our guide, Edward, was patient, encouraging it's just around the corner...you are doing great, and knowledgeable. On the drive out to Lake Louise from Banff, he told us a lot about the area which was really interesting. We had different levels of experience within our group a total of 7 - many of us did not know each other, but that was never a problem. Even though this hike is very popular and can get really busy, especially in the summer, I still highly recommend it.

The trip was great and our guide Jeff is really a knowledgable and very nice guy. Although the trip route has been changed due to the winter ice on the mountain, which I highly recommend to be showed on the website before people making decision to buy the trip, we still had a great hiking experience at Johnston Canyon during that 7 hours, especially when you get to the top, the water was so blue.... Our guide Jeff was so nice to drive us back to our hotels, and was so kind to drive me to Gondola and let me know I could have hot spring right after Gondola, which I did and the experience was so awesome. Wonderful trip!
