On behalf of the entire Walk The Tours team, I regret to inform you that all tours will be cancelled for the foreseeable future. Our guides' and guests' health and safety is our primary concern during the pandemic. In the meantime, any visitors who need assistance or recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact us via WhatsApp at 416 697 7654, email or any social media.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 during your stay in Calgary, DO NOT go to an emergency room or call 911 unless it is an emergency. Call Alberta Health Services, at 811, and they will do a phone diagnosis, and then send someone if needed to your hotel, Airbnb, etc. If you do not have health insurance, do not worry, they will help you.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Please understand we do not make this decision lightly as our guides depend on the tips received from happy guests as their primary income. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our business, we cater to guests from around the world, and cannot risk the heath of our guides, their families, and other guests. We have informed everyone personally who has booked a tour in the month of March. We will reevaluate April and beyond in the coming days. If you have any questions about our decision, or did not receive an email cancelling your tour, you can contact me personally, and we hope to walk with you in the future.
