Read more the tour went really well...ten in a group was just about right and the group managed to gel quite nicely..we also had great weather, mostly blue skies for our hikes, got very lucky too with close encounters of many wild life like bears, moose, elks, squirrels, chipmunks, eagles, and the doe-eyed cute deers too of course ???????? as daniel had lived in canada for 12 years, he was able to pick out good food and sought out good accommodation for the tour ???????? thought daniel planned and coordinated the whole trip very well..as someone observed, it was like a tour with sub-tours as daniel made sure that each of us get to do the optional tours that we had requested.. daniel was ever ready to accommodate to our requests, like making time for a run in the morning or for photography, looking out for opportunity to catch sights of wild life, ensuring everyone got their once in a life-time close up shots of the famed wild life in canada.. entertained us with games and drinks at lake louise..always making sure that we were all safe, well-fed and happy ???????? for me, really like the parker ridge hike..hike was not too long nor too tough..at the summit we got to see a beautiful but receding glacier between the mountains.. the glacier icewalk was another interesting highlight for me personally..the guide was informative and gave us fun experiences on the glacier ice..this icewalk should not be missed as probably not many chances to walk on glacier ice in time to come with global warming.. thank you daniel for putting together this fun and memorable road trip to the canadian rockies.. thank you too to 3PG for curating tours that give solo travellers like me a chance to experience something different something unique..and also to meet and make new friends..thank you ????????
