Overall rating

(113 reviews)

Highlight for my three grandboys. Two have never been on horses before! Crossing the Spray river was an exceptional experience as we rode up and down mountain paths!! Boys were asking to go again!!!

Family of 5, youngest 16yo. we had a great time. one of the highlights of our trip! We enjoyed all the Banff fun facts and loved running into the people that count/track the snails.

The best thing was the opportunity to see parts of the hotel and experience the restaurants that we would not have been able to afford, plus meeting head chefs in person.

The atmosphere and different aspects of each restaurant was great. We don’t usually get chef prepared meals. Fun experience!

Excellent. All the guides were very friendly and helpful.
