CalgaryWalks & Bus Tours

You can get to know Calgary from a bus or walking tour.  Sometimes it's best to walk the streets to discover Calgary's secrets and sometimes it's best to jump on the bus and explore the distances.  Either way, it's best to do that with a knowledgeable guide leading the way.

Our guides will give you an entertaining, informative experience that brings our city alive as only a face-to-face introduction can.  You’ll learn about the landmarks and public spaces that make Calgary an evocative blend of the old and new west.  You’ll also discover where to dine and shop as well – and how to get around downtown for free.

Join one of our experienced guides as we explore everything Calgary’s dynamic downtown has to offer. Our tours fill up, so book now to walk with us on your desired date.

Exploring Calgary by bus lets you sit back, ignore the traffic and just take in the scenery and stories you see and hear so that you can get the most out of your visit to Calgary.

If you’re interested in a group booking, or perhaps looking for a tour of a special or undiscovered location in Calgary, get in touch with us so we can create the tour especially suited to your needs.

Canada Dry, eh?! Walking Tour

Canada Dry, eh?! Walking Tour

Prohibition in North America was an interesting time in history.

Join us on a Walk Tour in the downtown area and learn the causes of Prohibition, why Canada went through two Prohibitions, and the human-interest stories that contributed to this fascinating era in Canadian history.

As your tour guide weaves through downtown Calgary bringing Prohibition to life, they will paint the picture of the cause of Prohibition and provide you the stories that contributed to this colorful time in history. You’ll learn of the riot that broke out at the Courthouse, the location of the “stash” from a robbery gone bad, the loop-holes, the speakeasy’s, and of course, the lasting effects of Prohibition in Canada.

This 2-hour walk tour begins at the old Calgary Courthouse and ends at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel where you will enjoy one (1) Prohibition-style drink.

Your tour guide will lead the group at a comfortable pace and make stops as needed.

Due to the subject nature of this tour and current liquor laws, we request that participants be 18 years old and up.
