An excellent tour! Our guide Hugh was very knowledgable about this part of Canada and passionate about bears. We called at Lake Louise, the Takakkaw Falls and saw the Spiral Tunnels, which are part of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The highlight, after lunch at the highest restaurant in Canada, was definitely seeing Boo the Grizzly Bear in his refuge. He obligingly sat at the fence whilst one of his "keepers" told us all about him. He seemed very content in his twenty acre reserve which you have to reach by ski lift. The bus was not too big and the company seem to really care about the environment. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in wildlife. A wild black bear obligingly crossed the road in front of the bus on the way down from visiting Boo. This trip was the highlight of our visit to Canada.

On to the Takakkaw Falls which were breath-taking. An excellent lunch followed, pre-ordered with four options and ready as we arrived at the restaurant.
Then the highlight of the day, being met by a 600lb 6 foot tall Grizzly bear who stood and stared at us from no more than six feet. He graced as with his presence for more than an hour and a half, scratching his back against his favourite tree and settling down to snooze in his hollow. Arrived back exactly when we were told we would.
We cannot recommend this company or our guide on the day highly enough. Book this trip, you won't regret a single minute of the day.

Anick our guide was fantastic, she had a wealth of knowledge which she freely imparted as we travelled along. She had folders with additional information which she passed out at the appropriate time. Despite the weather we had a fantastic day - despite a power outage we got to see Boo as the ranger drove us up the mountain in an all terrain vehicle. Missed our lunch at top of gondola due to weather but Anick worked hard to source alternatives. The trip was wonderful and we saw so much in addition to just Boo - very interesting. We had a very personalised tour as sadly the trip had not been very publicised, but we certainly preferred it.

We had a successful day in terms of bear spotting and the weather added to the splendour of the day.

Great trip - Andrew was a great tour guide and knew lots of interesting information about the area and Bou the grizzly. The bus was comfortable and lunch was excellent. Bou was the highlight of the day - he came right up to the fence so we got an excellent view of him. Definitely go on this tour!
