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.
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.
On time. Very good trip. A full day of seeing the area including all the sites I wanted to see. Good amount of time to view museum.
Visit to Royal Tyrrell Museum was rushed as only 2 hours were available for the visit. We liked the visits to the Ajax mine museum, the Hoodoos and Horseshoe Canyon.
all went well,driver experience was excellent,cater to my needs.
Great tour museum and hoodoos were fantastic. Coal mine bit was ok. Don't forget to put on your most cream or spray..
The driver Ray was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Ray our driver was excellent and gave us local information as we were driving. The areas we visited were very interesting and well worth a day's travel if you have never been to the Badlands before.
Great tour! bus was very new and clean!! I wish we had more time at each stop and returned a bit later though. 3.5hrs at the royal tyrell museum was not enough!! especially since we spent part of that time having lunch. In order to eat and explore some of the badlands trails, we had to skip part of the museum! I would have liked more time at horseshoe canyon as well. The stops at star mine suspension bridge and the hoodoos were both long enough
Disappointing ... as we spent far too long at a disused coal mine in the Badlands ... so only had a couple of hours left for lunch and to see the magnificent dinosaur museum ! .. Not nearly long enough. Would recommend an alternative tour that focuses on the museum and the Hoodoos only.
