We had the BEST time on the 6hr ride in September. Staff and guide were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We were a little weary at first doing 6hrs having maxed out at 3 on other trips, but it was great and we never regretted it! We ended up making it to the Plain of 6 Glaciers with a stop at... More

People were very friendly! i really recommend this company! Another important thing, you don't have... More

The owner was rude and frankly, happy that our guide was so nice. The guide was very knowledgeable and of good company. Few minutes in the horseback riding, she apologized for the owner rudeness. Concerning the owner, it is maybe time for her to move on and let someone else do the management. Poor people skills. We took the 5... More

We rode with Timberline 6 years ago while vacationing in the Banff area. We were very happy to make plans with them again. They are very experienced and professional. The horses are well cared for and well behaved. We selected an all day ride up through the mountains near Lake Louise Ski area to Ptarmigan Lake and Baker Lake. The... More

On Labour Day Monday, my friend and I signed up for a 3 hour horse trip up the mountain to the tea house. We were very excited to complete this activity, an anticipated trip highlight for the both of us. Had I been alone with my guide, my average rating would be quite poor, and had I had one of... More

We went up the Plain of six glaciers trail and I found it extremely boring. I would have preffered to hike the mountain on my own than on the horse. During the tour our guide would talk a lot about the trees, but not at all about the history and the views we were seeing. He didn't seem knowledgeable at... More

Me and my girlfriend done the 3 hour tour which took us up through the woods to the Lake Agnes tea house. I have never ridden horses but we were given horses that matched our size. Our guide Zack was really good and informative about the local environment and kept us talking on the way up through the winding tracks.... More

My ten year old daughter wanted to ride a horse. No one else in the family wanted to join. Timberline tours took her on a 15 minutes private ride in the woods and had my husband stand at prime spots for picture taking. It was very reasonably priced and was everything my daughter wanted. I highly recommend!

We did the 1.5 HR ride that took us along a trail beside the lake. We caught some stunning views between the trees and from the far side of the lake. Wow!! My kids (8 and 10) had never been on a horse and they loved it. The horses were gentle and very well behaved. We loved that it was... More
