Ashley and Colin were great guides on our tour. Very professional and personable. Saw wildlife, beautiful scenery, and fantastic buffet lunch.
We didn't go very far and that was perfect for us because we were only there for two days and didn't want to head out too far. We enjoyed getting off the bus for short scenic nature tours and seeing some of the interesting and beautiful sights that Jasper has to offer. We actually saw three eagle, moose dear and three brown bears. Great Driver and funny tour guide. The weather was too perfect!! We left at 9:30ish and were back by 1:50 Yay!
Maligne lake and Medicine lake are having such lovely views. We even did a cruise after the trip on maligne lake to get closer to the glacier. The falls and streams end route were so pretty. We got to see American black bears too. The maligne canyon was a good outing too.
A fantastic day. Our driver/guide Al, ably assisted by Jade, was extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to explain and show us as much as possible. Seeing bears and eagles in their natural habitat was amazing. Many thanks.
The day was cloudy and rainy and the bus driver refused to do anything about the weather. However, I really enjoyed the tour and as it turned out, the overcast foggy weather made for some truly beautiful photos. The driver was polite, funny, upbeat, very friendly and informative about the history of the area. Even with the rain it was money well spent. All together a very enjoyable tour.
Our guide was terrific - informative without being pedantic - because of the wildfires he had to modify our tour but the places we saw were terrific. It was a worthwhile three hours and I got a good sense of the the city and the surrounding countryside
My husband and I were lucky enough to be on a tour with a very small group 5 people. With the small size, Mich our guide/driver was very flexible and accommodating. Since we were running ahead of schedule, he even made an extra stop at an overlook. A pleasant half-day tour taking in the must-see sights of Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake. We got back to Jasper with enough time to go up the Tram for a hike.
