This tour is both informative and full of great stories. Jacob our tour guide was able to bring visual pictures of the past, so we were able see changes in the landmark. Also he is very passionate in telling stories of the "Cowboys" Legends then and now. The walk was no problem and kept on schedule.

Thanks so much to Jacob for taking us on a guided walk even though I know how busy all the guides have been. We absolutely loved the walk and got to see parts of Banff that we otherwise wouldn't have seen and learnt so much too. Brilliant way to spend an afternoon

Jacob, the guide, knew everything we needed to know to keep us safe. He's even an added whizz with suggested camera shots! Jacob was incredibly funny, so make sure you listen out for the punchline as they can be right crackers!

It was a fun event. Easy walk, informative host. Would suggest it or do it again.

Thank you Jacob! Such a nice night walk, we loved it!
