This is an excellent tour for me and Dad. Pick up bus was exactly on time, wild life sightings were great that day bear, deer, elk, guide/driver Dustin was outstanding excellent speaking voice and presentation pace, very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and a very good driver as well, food for lunch was reasonably good, destinations were great Athabasca Falls, Skywalk, and Athabasca Glacier and we were fortunate to have good weather. Tour order was changed to visit the Glacier last after the Skywalk and lunch, and I felt that was a blessing to save the best for last. Very happy and I highly recommend this tour.

This was a fabulous day.. The Brewster team of Patrick O'Connell and Alberto were terrific. The trip was seamless and the information they provided excellent. We got to see it all the falls, the skywalk and the ice field in comfort, with sufficient time to enjoy everything. We even had a decent hot lunch. I rate it and them highly
