The tour was amazing. Our tour guide was very friendly and interesting to listen to, answering all our questions with knowledge and a bit of humour. He made everyone feel very special and genuinely cared for our comfort. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Excellent drivers very informative information
Coach very comfortable
Very well organized and much enjoyed
really nice way to spend a day off
Wonderful day tour, great staff, and always on time. Would recommend it to all our friends.
We had a wonderful day, the driver/guide was very professional, friendly and welcoming. The whole day was a wonderful experience and we would recommend this tour to anyone spending a few days in Calgary. We thought we had seen it all having spent two days on the Goldleaf service on the Rocky Mountaineer but this coach tour just put the icing on the cake! Thank you to all involved
The Guide was fantastic
This tour was the only reason we stopped at Calgary and it did not disappoint. The Rockies were superb and we got a fantastic view from the Gondola ride. It was also good to be able to wander around the town of Bamff. The only minor negative was the confusion over the return bus trip (i.e. we went on a different bus) but the original driver did everything he could to line it up and make it work. A fantastic day and very worthwhile.
It's an early start to the day out of Calgary, but well worth it. Having the gondola ride first was great from the perspective that my breath was taken away right off the bat and it was only crowded on the way down. The guide was knowledgeable and humorous. I'm not really a tour kind of person, but this one was excellent.
It was good...I enjoyed. But is a little time in the places. Not too much time.
