Please bring your camera and join us on social media. Our guides will share our social media handles and tags with you.

When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and a lightweight pair of sunglasses. During the cooler seasons it’s important to wear layers of clothing and consider bringing a hat, gloves and a scarf as Canmore is in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the weather changes frequently.

Absolutely not! Our tours combine historical facts, local culture and culinary insights into a unique 3.5 hour experience.

Parking is available a few blocks from our meeting point – behind the Bank of Montreal in the parking lot between 8 Street (also known as Main Street) and 7 Street (also known as Veteran’s Way).
