I found this tour very good. The tour guide, Patrick, was excellent and gave us lots of interesting information on the Rockies , the different ranges and peaks and those associated with their naming and the flora and fauna of the park. At the Icefield the buffet was very good, wide choice and great food and the guides there were bright and bubbly.I would have liked a bit more time in Banf on the return , even 1/2 an hour more.
The tour began right on time. The tour guide/bus driver was well informed and was able to point out or comment on relevant inforamtion on the ride to Banff. The connection to the next bus was easy and the tour guide/bus driver was, once again, well informed and offered relavent information. The many side stops were very much appreciated for photo taking or stretching our legs. The buses were comfortable with excellent views of both sides. I would highly recommend this extremely enjoyable tour.
Great trip to experience the beauty of the Rockies. The tour guide was interesting and kept the group organized and informed during the day.
well organized, great scenic spots, experienced driver as tour guide. Highly recommend!

The day we took this tour we were fortunate enough to experience snow falling at Lake Louise and the Athabasca Glacier. It was a fairy tale experience.
Riding the giant purpose built transports to get onto the ice was very exciting. The tour was certainly value for money, which included a buffet lunch.
Pick up and drop off at our hotel was convenient. Driver was knowledgeable. Several stops along the way to take pictures or to get a better look at attractions.
The Icefield Tour was good!
Good weather, well organised. Would have liked more detailed information.
This is excellent value - all major areas are seen and plenty of stops for photos. Only down size was not enough time for dinner in Banff if you are returning to Calgary but would highly recommended this tour and our guide on the day Rick was excellent
Trip was good for me. Not good at all for my husband who walk with a cane, however the trip was recommended by one of your rep. timing for sightseeing was not long enough for him to get off the bus and return. It was a waste for him.
The itinerary includes a tour of Banff and that was one of the considerations for choosing this tour package but the only part of Banff I got to see was the bus station! So that was very disappointing. The rest of the tour was fine.
