Paul and Eva provided us with the perfect Banff hiking experience. They tailored the hikes to our interests and abilities, educating and entertaining us with their extensive knowledge of Banff ecology, history, experiences and local lore. We walked less traveled tails in the morning hours to avoid the crowds and they know the best places to stop to rest or... More

When we booked 5 days of guided hiking with Nature in Focus, we hoped that our family of four (including 2 teens) would spend a great vacation in the Canadian Rockies. We had high expectations and Paul & Eva surpassed them all. We started our days early, saw magnificent scenery (including wildlife++), hiked about 12-14 km/day while taking the time... More

Paul and Eva took my wife and I on a all day hike in Sunshine Meadows at the end of June. It was very enjoyable. They designed the hike particularly for us; accommodating our activity level, our interest in views and general information about the area. They were very engaging but not pushy and had a genuine desire for us... More

Now back home, our group of four often think backs to the two delightful hikes we went on with Eva and Paul Sylvestre's Nature in Focus. The two of them work as a great team: both are easy to get along with and very friendly. Paul walks in front, Eva stays in the rear with those whose pace is a... More

Paul & Eva are just wonderful. I was researching Guides in the area to take my Mum and I on a hike, and from the get go I knew Nature In Focus were the ones to choose. Paul was quick to email me back answering all my questions and he came across as so friendly, professional and helpful. We spoke... More

Paul is gregarious, Eva is sweet, both are extremely knowledgeable and are wonderful to have as guides. They relate well to both adults and kids, they point out interesting things along the way, and we felt absolutely safe with them around! The weather changed drastically during our hike and we completely trusted their judgment on how to handle it. We... More

We hiked with Eva Sylvestre to the Sunshine Meadow. Paul had an injury so Eva hiked with us solo. We don't feel like we missed anything having her as our lone guide. The recommendation that we do the Sunshine Meadow was perfect. It was exactly the kind of hike my husband and I were looking for. It had beautiful scenery... More

We spent three days of hiking with Eva and Paul at the Banff-Lake Louise area and they created for us an unforgettable experience above all our expectations. The communication with them while planning and booking the trip was open, easy and efficient. We hiked the Sunshine Meadows, Plain of Six Glaciers, Lake O`Hara and some other "secret" places we couldn't... More

My husband and I booked Eva and Paul for a trip to sunshine meadows. We were thoroughly pleased with our hiking experience! Correspondence is quick and easy. Paul is fun and personable, with a great sense of humor, and Eva is a beautiful soul, and a gem of woman. They compliment each other quite well, and make a great team!... More
