Full Day Adventure Tour | Banff, Lake Louise & Johnston Canyon | Winter
"Our tour was small so he was able to pick us up right at our bed and breakfast but normally there is a pickup spot at 9am. Dale was our driver and he had a great and flexible itinerary mapped out for us. Lots of freedom to make additional stops and tones of information about local sights and attractions. He knows all the mountain names too! All the supplies like skates, crampons and snowshoes ere provided and he can provide rental stuff on other days when you aren't touring with him. This tour was my favourite and we took a lot while in Banff. Highly reccomend."..."
