- I had researched guided tours of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and this tour had exactly the itinerary that I wanted. I wasn't disappointed, except for the weather at times, which I really should have anticipated. Overall we were considered lucky with the weather and the wildlife sightings in late August, so the time of year seemed to be ideal. Top tips are to bring plenty of layers and weatherproof clothing, sturdy boots, mosquito repellent and walking poles. We had a few picnics and a BBQ dinner, all shopped for and prepared for by our amazing tour leader/driver, which only cost us between CAD$5-$10 per meal, which was excellent value and a nice break from restaurants. The selection offered to us for these shared meals was far better when our resources were pooled together, and our tour leader choose items and cooked them far better than I could have done. She also drove us to places when we needed a ride somewhere when we were not staying in the centre of town and she was overall the most amazing tour leader ever.
