Robbie was incredible tour guide. From his knowledge about wildlife, to scenic views, this is one of the best private tours I have ever experienced. I even booked the trip to get engaged and Robbie provided pictures and updates about potential spots. Could not imagine a better day/tour. Highly recommend.

It was such an amazing night. We were so lucky to have a private tour by Jacob. He was amazingly knowledgeable, understanding and funny. I would recommend anyone who loves to watch the stars, walk in nature and get lost in the moment where you can forget your daily challenges.

Booked a guided hike as a birthday present for my fiancé. Neither of us are expert hikers but Jacob made the experience very comfortable and fun. He was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history and a really great guide overall! Hoping to come back for another tour in the summer.

My friends and I booked a five days private tour to explore the Abraham Lake and David Thomspon area in Jan 2019. Danielle arrange everything, she pick us from Calgary airport to Red Deer hotel and she is also a very good cooker. She prepared delicious lunch, such as hot soup, sandwiches snacks for us. Our great tour guide, JP, always with smiling face, he is nice, patient, knowledgeable, he know where all the good bubbles are and he took our safety by checking ice conditions and warning us when we could and shouldn't advance further on the ice. He is the best guide we’ve ever had! We had the best time with him and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see amazing ice bubble.

Our guides visited with each group on the bus so we could plan our day. They marked our schedule on the itinerary so we would know when to get back on the bus, and everything worked out perfectly. We were able to visit the most popular places and not worry about parking. We were very happy with this tour.

White Water Rafting on the Sunwapta River was amazing! The water was freezing, but that did not prevent us from having such a fun time. Brody, our Maligne Adventures raft guide, did an incredible job instructing us on how to steer through the rapids and how to avoid the many obstacles in the water. Rafts can normally hold 6 people plus a guide. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, our group of 4 was in our own raft with our guide which was perfect for us. We chose to not take the bus transfer from the downtown Jasper meeting point to avoid having to wear masks for the 45 minute per direction bus ride. We followed the bus in our own car. Everyone at Maligne Adventures, from Daniella in the reservations office to the rafting guides were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We highly recommend this tour. We would most certainly do it again.
