Delicious food tour
, Jun 2022
This tour was wonderful from start to finish! Barbara was a delightful guide with lots of local history knowledge as well as food knowledge. Gorgeous views both inside and outside the hotel. Every food course was DELISH! I would book this tour time and time again without hesitation.

amazing food in a historic building
, Dec 2021
You may think, how can you do a food tour in one building? Well, it is possible and the food is amazing. The Fairmont Banff Springs is a huge property with a fantastic culinary program where ingredients are grown on site or sourced locally. There are multiple eateries each with their own specialties. Each stop includes a specialty from the specific eatery paired with drink. The food is set, but you are given a choice between a couple of drinks that will pair nicely with the food at most of the stops. As you move from location to location, you also get a tour of the hotel and hear the history of the building and how it was built facing the wrong direction much to the ire of the original founder.

Dear Trena, Thank you for taking the time to give our Eat the Castle Canadian Signature Experience this lovely review. I will share your comments with our team and the hotel's fantastic culinary team as well. We sure appreciate you including our tour in your vacation. Please come back and try our Alberta Food Finder game in Canmore and Calgary next time! With gratitude, Karen Anderson Presiden, Alberta Food Tours, Inc.
Great Food and Hotel History
, Oct 2019
Kerry was an excellent tour host, she knew the property well and was able to entertain us with stories along the tour. We visited four restaurants and a chef from each came out to talk to us. This was the highlight for me, to hear their passion and love of their establishments. They explained the uniqueness of their place and about our food sample. What impressed me most was the challenge Fairmont has given for a zero waste operation. Each chef spoke to eat with eagerness and delight at their creativity to accomplish this. The food was amazing at each different stop. The drinks were also very good, but could have been better if they included alcohol.

Dear 189deb, Thank you so much for your kind words about the tour, the Fairmont Banff Springs, the amazing chefs we get to work with and our guide Kerry. I will be sharing this with all concerned. It's illegal in Alberta for us to sell alcohol that someone else is licensed for. That is why we provide amazing culinary craft spirit-free beverages on all our tours and negotiate a special price for the alcohol drinks guests can buy on their own. I am currently working on an innovation with government to get around this but it is a long road. Thanks for your encouragement. I'll stick with it! With gratitude, Karen Anderson President and CEO, Alberta Food Tours, Inc
