Our guide was Mia, and she was excellent. If we had seen no animals, it would still have been a terrific outing ... but we did see animals! If I was forced to identify any shortcomings, it would be an unmet interest in learning a bit more about the geology makeup of the region.

Enjoyed both the coach trip and the boat trip all guides were brilliant
Guide brilliant we looked for all sorts found longhorn sheep, mule deers and elks all the bears eluded us. Fantastic evening out.
very informativeguide very knowledgable about the area
The driver was informative and tried really hard to wildlife for us however it just did not happen the bus was a little hot for the clothing advise given
The animals were otherwise occupied but that is a chance you take.
A very knowledgeable, passionate tour guide made up for it.
Well worth it just in case.
Very knowledgeable guides; even when each of them told the same story, they added an individual twist! Concerned about our safety and well organised to catch the rather tight schedule between tour bus, the icefield shuttle and the terra that actually moves on the glacier. Just wish the schedule could accommodate some slack to visit the museum and gift shop at leisure
Gondola has great views of town and surrounds
Excellent trip. Friendly, knowledgeable guides. A very pleasant experience. Would contact Viator in the future.
The animals are active throughout the day but seem to be more active in early morning or in the evening.
Our guide took us to areas where we saw several Elk and a two Black Bears.
It was especially satisfying to finally take a photo of a Black Bear in the wild.
Greta guide who continued on to search after the allotted time had expired. Good local knowledge.

The tour itself was great! Man problems with the time of the reservation. Viator seems to be a 3rd party booker, so problems arise with commnications betwee customer, Viator and people actually putting on the tour. Had to rearrange whole schedule for the day as they gave me the wrong time for pickup. Luckily, I called the day before to confirm.
It was excellent.
The driver was friendly and gave lots of interesting information and was helpful all day.
It was as enjoyable as interesting. Thankyou.

Knowlege of the area was wonderful information given by our guide. We found the tour was running on time and everyone was very pleasant and seemed to really enjoy their job. We would recommend this tour!
Great tour would reamend to anyone. Our tour guide/bus driver was the best.
