A great and insightful tour to learn about the Badlands, which is about a two-hour drive from downtown Calgary. The hoodoos were magical, and also included a stopover at the Atlas Mines not recommended if one is claustrophobic and/or afraid of the dark, and this tour involves a lot of walking on an incline, so wear sturdy hiking shoes. The last stop was at the impressive Royal Tyrell Museum -- worth the entire trip alone! Their dinosaur fossil collection is absolutely the best in the world not to miss to visit when you are in Calgary.
Terrific day! Great guides!
We tagged this day trip onto a tour we were taking of Western Canada. Boy we were glad we did. The trip went smoothly thanks to our guide. The coach was comfortable and the sites we visited were worth it. The highlight for us was the Tyrrell Dinosaur museum. This is a world class exhibit and not to be missed if you are in the area. The other stops were picturesque Horseshoe Canyon, HooDoos. Mine tour was interesting and instructive thanks to our guide Sean. Great day. Money well spent.
The tour took us to Horseshoe Canyon, Horse Thief Canyon, Atlas Coal Mine with a tour of the site, the Drumheller Hoodoos and the Royal Tyrrell Museum.
It was a great day tour - just the right number of things to see and do - remember to take your camera!
I got my lunch at the museum and still had time to look at each exhibition.
Great visit! Tour operator was a great help
This tour was very informative and interesting. The visit to the coal mine was a new experience for me and while I thought the tour guide at the mine was excellent, I felt that on the web site people should have been advised to wear proper footwear for such a visit.There were a few occasions where a person could have tripped or fallen and unsuitable footwear might have contributed to this. I personally would have been hesitant in taking small children for that reason but that would have been for the parents to decide.The stop at Horse Shoe Canyon was also worthwhile and the museum in Drumheller was as good as the publicity said it would be.The Badlands landscape formation was well described by our bus tour guide and stops for taking photos were appreciated. All in all, this tour was well worth the dollar value and time it took.
We had no idea there were so many dinosaur fossils in the badlands area. It was a most interesting tour. The Hoodoos were also a cool find.
Well arranged educational tour with a professional tour guide.
I enjoyed this tour so much! Our tour guide Rey was very informative on our drive to Drumheller. The tour of Atlas Coal Mine was worth seeing. The Badlands were an absolute highlight of our trip. The Royal Tyrrell Museum turned out to be one of my favorite museums and there is a lovely trail to walk nearby.
Great tour! Bus arrived early and was clean and cool air-conditioned! The driver/host was very nice and quite knowledgeable about the area and all the sites that we visited. I enjoyed seeing the Horseshoe Canyon, the abandonned coal mine, the Hoodoos and, of course the Royal Tyrrell Museum. Unfortunately, we missed out on the star mine suspension bridge which I was looking forward to. Again, great tour, I would definitely recommend it.
