We had the most fantastic day with an excellent, humerous and very informative driver/guide. What beautiful lakes and countryside. A unique experience. Thank you.
Thoroughly enjoyed every minute the gude was really very good, coach comfortable and air cond, pick ups made to suit you.
Weather wasn't great but really enjoyed scenery and commentary from our Brewsters driver Stan from Halifax. Lake Louise was fantastic although Chateau was unsurprisingly very busy. Lunch (provided as part of the tour) was very nice. Moraine Lake was very picturesque but the highlight was a dead heat between Stan's fantastic traverse of the 'Switchback' on the road to the Takakkaw Falls and seeing two Grizzlies on the railway track on the way back to Banff.
Great day tour to see all the prominent features in the vicinity of Banff. The tour was operated by Brewster's. The lunch included consisted of a couple of OK sandwiches, chips, a fruit or cookie and a soft drink.
Fantastic!! What more can I say! The scenery was breattaking. Lunch at The Lake Louise Fairmont Resort was great. Highly recommended to nature lovers.
It was absolutely amazing! we had a great tour guide and enough time for all the stations. well done!^^
I really enjoyed my day trip. The coach driver was very knowledgeable on the sights we visited, all of which were beautiful. The lunch at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise was more than I could eat - in all, it was a really great day.
Amazing! We woke up on the day of our trip to 6 inches of snow, despite this the trip went ahead. Tour guide/bus driver was excellent. His commentary over the 8 hours was brilliant and very informative. Would highly recommend it.
Great tour. Gave us a true idea of the area. Tour Guide was very informative.
Mike Morrison, Our driver, was excellent as a tour guide and driver. His knowledge of the area was outstanding. What a great trip on a clean modern coach. He made the experience perfect. The time was just right at each stop and the views incredible.
Mike talked just the right amount of time and always was informative and often funny! A total pleasure, first to last, with an excellent-value lunch voucher at Lake Louise. The itinerary was packed with exactly what I wanted to see. The time for short hikes was ample, and we were on time the whole way.
What a fabulous journey with lunch included. A fantastic opportunity to photograph some of Canada's most beautiful scenery. The stops are brief but just enough to allow yourself a promise to return at leisure. A truly well planned tour!
This tour was very good, but too long, had to circle back to Lake Hotel which was out of the way and not coordinated well
The tour itself was fun and exciting. However, the tour guide was monotonous, dull and self absorbed with his own experiences. He constantly told us stories about his wife and his vacation and hikes. He never talked about historical or geological information regarding the sights we were seeing.
Beautiful day and scenery. We're very fortunate to see a very big black bear just on the side of the road and the driver was able to stop for photos. Unbelievable experience
Really enjoyed the tour. Loved Johnston Canyon, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, but felt that we would have preferred to have seen something else closer to Banff than the final trip to Takakwa Falls - too long a drive for a less than spectacular waterfall. However, I left a sweater on the bus, and this was returned to my hotel very quickly after we reported it - so kudos to your company for that.
This was an excellent tour. We saw so many different things and Mark was so informative. Some of the bends in the road were scary but he drove with ease and we were at ease.
This was a beautiful tour made even better by our tour guide, Jared (Jarred/Jarrod?). Jared was informative, funny and infinitely patient. He gave clear directions and thought of all of our needs. He was terrific. I'd give this tour 5 stars but the air conditioning went out in the bus around noon and the afternoon was almost unbearably hot in the bus given the outside temperature hit 90. Jared did finally open the hatches on the ceiling of the bus which made the temperature inside a bit more bearable. If not for the air conditioner malfunction, it would have been a perfect trip. Thank you, Jared
Beautiful scenery, a knowledgeable guide and a comfy coach. The stop at Lake Louise is one of the highlights of this trip and well worth the visit.
We were promised a hotel pick-up and then not picked up. This delayed the start of the trip for everyone on board. Bus was very nice. Driver was great. Too little time at Lake Louise. By the time we picked up our sack lunches (very good food) and ate them, we had only 15 minutes to enjoy the Lake and do some shopping. I think we could have eliminated the spiral railway tunnel stop. No trains appeared, so there wasn't much to see. Beautiful scenery everywhere along the way. Unfortunately we saw no wildlife. We were glad we had taken this day trip.
The views were magnificent and the bus driver was excellent. We enjoyed the ride down the Bow Valley Parkway so much the first time on the bus that we did the drive ourselves the next day and again saw some bears and elk. Highly recommended
Very good trip. Spectacular water falls. Lots to see and lots of wild life including Bears. It's a pity that they don't use smaller buses so that you could get out when you saw the wild life.
Our tour was changed to a shorter version, tour ended at 2 pm instead of 5-6 pm. We didn't see some spots, but what we saw was very beautiful. I loved Johnston Canyon and lake Moraine (as well as lake Louise, but this one we saw a day before on another trip as well). Pity that we didn't see everything what was planed on this tour due to road closure.
