We enjoyed an excellent day viewing the main sites that lie off the only road into Wells gray from Clearwater. Gy (Guy) is very knowledgable and we learnt a lot . As others have said the tour we did (2 couples) took us to areas that we could have seen with our cars but it was great to have a rest from driving and take in the splendours of the park. Gy was excellent with his communications and the booking was easy, Gy and his family also went that bit further by helping us with a few parking issues we had for which we were most grateful. Excellent packed lunch was provided and seeing the leaping salmon was a real highlight. Thoroughly recommend Gy and his services, wished we had time for a hike ...another time perhaps!

I am suffering arthritus in the hip and we were scheduled to have a four hour walking trip. The previous day I phoned and spoke with Guy explaining my concerns. He was very understanding and stated that he tailored his tours to the guests. This put my mind at ease and it was decided we would visit the three main falls and hopefully Green Mountain, which initially was engulfed in early morning cloud. Guy is originally from UK but his wealth of knowledge of flora and fauna in the area is immense. He made the tour so interesting we could have spent all day. The walks were not onerous, he immediately became aware of my love of birdlife and listened to sounds as well as pointing out some to us as we walked. We were able to get to Green Mountain and saw some incredible views. The four hours flew past.

We did a hike to Moul Falls. Our guide (originally from the UK) was very knowledgeable. We loved hearing about the plants and trees (and sampling the various berries) and the history of the area and the park. We went to Moul Falls and we loved going behind the waterfall (which we probably wouldn't have done without an expert guide that knew what she was doing). It was magical as were the lovely yummy snacks!

We had an excellent trip with Gy. There were four of us on the tour, myself and my wife and another couple. Gy was brilliant at explaining the geography and geology of the sites that we visited and his knowledge of the local flora and fauna was excellent. Frankly we could have got to all of the sites in our hired 4x4, but Gy adds so much value to the trip with his knowledge of the park; he really brings it alive for his guests. The highlight of the trip was probably seeing the salmon leaping at Bailey’s Chute, which was a real bonus. Gy thank you for such an enjoyable day.

Gy showed our group of 4 numerous interesting aspects of the "corridor". One of our group was unable to walk far, but we still saw the major waterfalls, and especially enjoyed the Ray Farm visit. Gy's knowledge of the biology, geology and history of the park was a real asset, and his pleasant and laid back manner made our tour a relaxing pleasure.
