Paul is gregarious, Eva is sweet, both are extremely knowledgeable and are wonderful to have as guides. They relate well to both adults and kids, they point out interesting things along the way, and we felt absolutely safe with them around! The weather changed drastically during our hike and we completely trusted their judgment on how to handle it. We probably won't be back in Banff for another several years, but a hike with Nature in Focus will definitely be on the agenda.

We hiked with Eva Sylvestre to the Sunshine Meadow. Paul had an injury so Eva hiked with us solo. We don't feel like we missed anything having her as our lone guide. The recommendation that we do the Sunshine Meadow was perfect. It was exactly the kind of hike my husband and I were looking for. It had beautiful scenery and enough adventure to suit us. Eva was an outstanding guide. Her pace was perfect for us and she took us off the beaten track so that we saw very few hikers for a good portion of the trip. Her knowledge of the flora and fauna was excellent. We learned a lot. Eva and Paul's communication with us prior to the trip was timely and informative. This hike was one of the highlights of our trip to Banff/Lake Louise. I would highly recommended Nature in Focus for a personalized guided hiking experience.

We spent three days of hiking with Eva and Paul at the Banff-Lake Louise area and they created for us an unforgettable experience above all our expectations.
The communication with them while planning and booking the trip was open, easy and efficient. We hiked the Sunshine Meadows, Plain of Six Glaciers, Lake O`Hara and some other "secret" places we couldn't find in regular guids and websites.
Eva and Paul's outgoing and friendly personality completed our family's experience in the Rockies.
We highly recommend Nature in Focus, Eva and Paul as the ultimate hiking guides.

My husband and I booked Eva and Paul for a trip to sunshine meadows. We were thoroughly pleased with our hiking experience!
Correspondence is quick and easy. Paul is fun and personable, with a great sense of humor, and Eva is a beautiful soul, and a gem of woman. They compliment each other quite well, and make a great team! They aimed to please in every way! They were relaxed, flexible, efficient, and professional. I recommend them highly, and Sunshine Meadows is chock full of beauty in every direction you look!
Go when the wildflowers are in season; a site to behold!
We are grateful!

We had a wonderful time with Paul and Eva. They were very knowledgeable about the area and great with our kids (10yrs, 5yrs, and 8mo) keeping them engaged during our hike. Super friendly and easy to spend time with. We will definitely hike with them again on our next visit to Banff.
