We are a hardy bunch in Canada so we run our tours rain, shine, or snow. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on the tour. Dress in layers and pack an umbrella in case of sudden weather changes. It’s always best to check the weather conditions for your day’s event and dress appropriately.
The tours are recommended for children ages 14 and over. Children younger than 14 tend to get bored with the story telling, walking a fair distance and being social with adults for three and a half hours.
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).

What a great way to spend the day in Canmore! My sister, my friend and myself were in Canmore on a girls weekend and signed up for the tour last minute and we were so glad we did. The food and drinks at all of the stops were delicious!
