My wife and I were led by Joel on a hike overseeing beautiful Emerald Lake. Joel is professional, knowledgeable and patient. We had a great experience and learned a lot from him about the mountains, botany, wildlife and more. We saw a family of grouse, a woodpecker working hard, ground squirrels, gray jays, and chipmunks. Also saw some interesting plants,... More

My husband and I joined a small group of 6 hikers. Nadine was our guide and entertainment ;) Between her knowledge, experience and fun educational tidbits, we had a great time. Highly recommend her tours for individuals and families! Don't forget to ask Nadine to sing a riff of the "Blue Canadian Rookies.

Absolutely fabulous hike filled with great information. Joel has a wealth of knowledge which he happily shares in an easy to understand and entertaining manner. It was obvious Joel had spent considerable time preparing before this hike to make it special for each member of our group. He truly listened to our wants and needs to provide thorough satisfaction. We... More

My family and I hiked with Nadine through the Valley of the Ten Peaks & Sentinel Pass in mid-August. It was a beautiful day with magnificent scenery but the highlight of the trip was Nadine's company. Her enthusiasm is infectious -- particularly about bears -- and her knowledge of the area impressive. Most of all, she was a pleasure to... More

Great hike up to the Tea House, 4 hours round trip, bring water, walking poles. Line up at the Tea House, so may want to bring your own water/food/snacks

We did the full day private Bird Watching hike with Joel and had an absolutely fantastic day. Joel was incredibly knowledgeable not only about the birds we saw and heard but also about the areas we visited. Not that we have heard many bird impersonations before, but Joel's were particularly impressive and very entertaining. Another plus in Joel's favour was... More

This is such a great way to hike, learn about the Rockies and meet new people! This was our favorite activity from our recent visit. Friendly, professional, interesting, breathtaking and fun! My daughter and I really enjoyed our day.

This was our first excursion at the start of our RV trip through the Rockies. We had read the excellent reviews and had therefore booked our places with Nadine prior to leaving England. Although the day was drizzly and overcast, this really did not spoil the day. Nadine was superb throughout our hike, bringing alive all we were witnessing; the... More

AMAZING! Joel's knowledge & passion for the area is intoxicating. We learned so much on our hike and I am so glad he was there to keep us safe. A true professional. Getting up close to the glaciers and learning about how they were formed and continue to move and effect the landscape was fascinating. We saw so much wildlife... More
