This is without a doubt, the best tour I've ever done. I'm a regular viator user and this tour takes the cake. The views are amazing, everywhere you turn there's so much to see. You get plenty of time for amazing photos and if you're short on time or can't stay more than a few nights in Calgary this is a must do. if you can stay longer, definitely try for extended stays at these sights - the views are incredible. This was undoubtedly one of, if not my most favourite day I've ever spent on holidays. I would do it again and again.

We were in Calgary for the Stampede which was a blast. Our driver for the tour going to Banff was nice and informative. The scenery was breath taking. We stopped at 3 lakes and had time to walk around and take pictures at each, we were lucky enough to watch a freight train go into the corkscrew tunnel and come out going in the opposite direction. We walked to 2 waterfalls and finally had time to shop and dine in Banff. It was a full day but that was all the time we had. Our driver and guide were helpful and the company was accommodating and we are glad we could fit this trip in our week.

Excellent. It was a very long day, but it was worth it.
Well organized and drivers were super informative. There are two buses, one from Calgary to Banff then from Banff to the tourist spot and vice versa for the return to Calgary.
The driver doubles over as the tour guide and there is a secondary guide that does all the organizing. When you arrive at the tourist spots, there is free time to explore on your own, which is great. We throughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting. : :

This 12 hour day involved a two hour bus ride from Calgary to Banff as offered by Brewster Travel. We travelled through two provinces: Alberta and British Columbia during the course of the day. Lunched at Emerald Lake lodge. The sights were spectacular as rains had cleansed the air of smoke allowing the tourists to view the pristine waters of the lakes and the breathtaking waterfalls. The professional driver, Al, and tour guide, Bianca, afforded all ample time to see Mother Nature's splendor. My favorite waterfall was in Yoho National Park. You would just stare in awe at the beauty of Takakkaw Falls. If you have but one tour to take during your visit, THIS TOUR IS THE ONE. Highly, highly recommended!
