Guide brilliant we looked for all sorts found longhorn sheep, mule deers and elks all the bears eluded us. Fantastic evening out.
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.
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.
Well, we didn't see a bear or a moose, but our tour guide, Ben made sure we saw plenty of wildlife on this great tour, plus all the best places for photographs. A great experience and one to remember for a long time. All your tour guides are a credit to your company.
The French guy was great - fun and yet very informative. Just the right person as he had a flare for animals and nature. Ideal for wildlife safari's in case you do not get lucky with things to see!
A great little trip with a guide who clearly enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the local wildlife.
Saw lots of wildlife. Large adult male elk. Big groups of female elk and deer. A young black bear and some big horned sheep
A very informative tour. We did see a bear, mule deer and glimpses of other deer so we were quite lucky.
Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide included a lot of history of the region. Perhaps the tour could have been a little longer.
DBT were excellent picked up on time agreed, very knowledeable of where wildlife might be found and went out of their way to ensure we saw as much as possible in the time alloted. Guide gave a vey good account of how Canada was looking after their parks.
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.
We saw male Elk rounding up the females then battling by locking horns. As it was mating season they were also buggling - the male elk that is. This is a good tour, but obviously hit and miss as to what wildlife you actually see.
The guide was superb but the wildlife didn't put in an appearance. It was a lovely evening and the tour provided everything including umbrellas and binoculars.
This tour was very good, and our tour guide knew exactly where to go and what to look for. The guide was also very helpful and pleasant.
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
Not a good tour. Only small number of animals. It became quite boring within one hour
The main problem with this tour was the design of the bus. It was a mini bus which was full. We did see elk a number of times but unless you were sitting on the close side of the bus, you had a poor view and very difficult to take photos. There were no photo stops when we did go past some scenic lookouts.
Good guide - but frankly not worth it. On driving around ourselves frankly we saw more wildlife. No fault of the guide - not something you can control - but I would not recommend this to anyone.
From a 3 week wonderful holiday in Canada, this evening wildlife safari was the only disappointing tour. Most of the time was spent on the highway and the tour was more than half over before any sighting was made. The guide was not very good and rabbited on very fast and almost incoherently. He had a microphone but couldn't be heard over the noise of the bus. We did see elk but we had better sightings from a hotel shuttle bus and on the journey to Columbian Icefield parkway.. We also saw a coyote, but way in the distance, but that was it. All the sightings were spotted by tourists on the bus. The bus windows were small with wide bars in between each window and very small windows at the top, which opened just a few inches. Each time something was spotted, there were too many people on the bus for everyone to get a good photo from the tiny opening. The guide did, of course, stop when he could and let us off the bus when it was safe to do so. It wasn't easy to take photos from the main window because of the evening sun and too much reflection. We would not do this tour again. It was a waste of money.
The only wildlife we saw were elk that were on the local golf course.I realize that they can't always predict where wild animals will be but it would have helped if our young driver was more knowledgeable. Anyone wanting to see elk should just drive themselves to the golf course.
