Our family (with 2 teenage kids) had a day hiking around Lake Louise with Dave. It was brilliant! We could totally relax knowing we were in excellent hands. Dave's local expert knowledge is invaluable. He knew just what to do to avoid the crowds and minimise the pain! He kept our two teens engaged and interested for 5 hours which... More

Thank you for the review. Everything did work out very well, especially given the throngs in the valley below. Hope to see you again sometime soon for a multi day outing with your family. All the best! More

My wife and I, with our two teenage boys (aged 13 and 15) booked Dave for a full day hike based around Lake Louise. We started early and Dave led us to Lake Agnes, then up to the Big Beehive and back through a picturesque glacial valley before the final stretch along Lake Louise itself. We are not particularly experienced... More

We did two all day hikes with Dave around Lake Morraine and Emerald Lake in June 2016. He will tailor the hike to your needs. We did 10 or 11 miles each day and the vistas were incredible. Dave knows all the trails and wildlife and plants and flowers. We packed small lunches and had incredible views while we ate... More

We had one day to spend hiking in Lake Louise and I am so glad we hired Dave Honeyman to guide us. We were a group of five adults and we spent 6-7 hours hiking to the top of Big Beehive and then making our way back down to the shores of Lake Louise. The scenery was spectacular, the hiking... More

Family hike with children (6,8,11 and 13) to top of Beehive was without question, the highlight of our trip to Lake Louise. We could not and would not have tried this without a guide.
