What you'll do

Your adventure starts the minute I pick you at your front door starting from 8:30AM in Downtown Calgary or in Canmore from 10:00AM. Get ready for a day filled with awes and ahs!

Not only are we going to cover all the main sites including Canmore, Banff, Lake Minnewanka and Lake Louise but in addition you will visit many great hidden spots that avoid crowds and give million dollar views!!!

We'll figure out the group's dynamic of who wants to do what or where, so we can get it done! If you like to hike, stroll along one of the beautiful lakes, sit down and relax, take postcard worthy pictures, look for wild life or do it all; it's possible!

I will adapt and adjust our stops according to traffic, weather, and mostly to your wants. This experience is about wowing you all day!

And if you like; I'll be your personal photographer for the day!!!

We'll have lunch at around 12:30 and will have a few coffee or pit stops in between Banff and Lake Louise. We will visit many scenic points throughout the day but will arrive at Lake Louise close to 5PM.

You will take home unforgettable memories. Make sure to charge your phones and cameras as the average person goes home with more than 100 photos!

This experience last between 8 to 10 hours depending where you are picked up and dropped off.

My goal is to make sure you get the best tour of your life, so let's beam you up!

I love to travel, the outdoors, to take pictures everywhere I visit. I have been living in Calgary for almost 5 years, I had to be a tourist in my own city for a while and loved every bit of it. Once I discovered the Canadian Rocky Mountains I was hooked on phonics! The pictures are amazing, the drive is spectacular and the animals you see are unique to the area. I have taken many out of town friends and family for a day tour with their friends; and the feedback led me to share the experience with you through Airbnb.

I was a bit hesitant at first booking with Kevin but let me tell YOU! This was by far one of the BEST experiences I've had. We visited many magical lakes and secret locations! Not only was he on time but he made she we were all comfortable and having a grand time. You should also plan this experience with an open mind because Kevin is full of surprises! Always kept us on our toes and never disappointed with any of the locations. Oh! and if he suggests you should try a particular food, TRY IT! His taste buds never steered me wrong. I'm so excited to book with him again! Kevin is FAMILY, lol. p.s where comfortable walking shoes.

YOU HAVE TO TOUR WITH KEVIN! I had only 1 day to explore the Banff/Lake Louise area, and this tour completely smashed my expectations. We went to places you have never seen on Instagram (secret hidden gems with no tourists). Kevin isn’t lying when he says you’ll leave with 100’s of photos. I came as a solo backpacker and met 4 new friends (whole group) by the end of the tour. Honestly, this tour is worth $300 or more. I will recommend to EVERYONE! You will not be disappointed. Kevin is an incredible guide. My only advice - bring a bathing suit and water footwear as you will stop at some beautiful water places and it’s nice to walk in.

I have been on so many tours all around the world and had the company of so many tour guides, and here's why I honestly believe Kevin and his experience to be among the very best. - You will be a part of a small private group so will get to know people, very helpful for solo travelers especially as opposed to driving to/seeing these places on your own in Banff. - Since he's a local, he knows a lot of secret spots that you wouldn't come across otherwise. - Is a good and knowledgeable story-teller. - Is honestly the most accommodating and flexible tour guide I've ever come across. Our group was more ambitious with all we wanted to cover and he was happy to have the tour go on later than expected, gave us enough time at all the stops and we never felt rushed anywhere, and made sure all in the group got to do the things they really wanted. I don't have much else to add, except for just book this tour and go along on it. You'll have a blast.
