About the tour

Welcome to Calgary! Canada's Wild West boomtown began at Fort Calgary (as will we), yet people have lived in the area for thousands of years. On this walk, we will discuss Calgary's history, culture and environment. There will also be some silly jokes and a meeting with the first elected women in the British Empire. I go to Calgary once a week, and time these tours around the visit.

Lots of information about the history of the city, beautiful green areas and monuments. I enjoyed the artwork a lot - thanks, Patrick, for pointing it out and explaining it as well! A relaxing walk around Calgary with a knowledgable, enthusiastic guide.
