What people are saying about Jasper

I was looking for something to do in Jasper and when I saw that there was a food tour, I jumped at the chance as I love trying new restaurants and discovering new foods. The day before my tour, I received a text from Estelle (founder) that I was the only one that signed up for the Oct 25th tour and if I would like to switch it to the 26th as there was 10+ people for that session and she thought that would give me a different experience. She left the ball in my court as to which one I preferred and I opted to keep the Tuesday date. I am so happy I did, as I felt I got the VIP treatment from the tour guide, Hilary! Estelle was so quick in responding to my texts and was so pleasant to deal with.

While we are Albertans who have seen all these animals before, it was nice to ride around fully enjoying the animals and scenery while someone else did the driving. Jeff was a great guide to ride around with.

Amazing food tour. Food was delicious and perfectly portioned. Hilary the tour guide was knowledgeable and great to talk to
