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.

Even though we couldn and #39;t see the iced field because of the weather, the views are amazing and very interesting.

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

It was an amazing tour - even though I wasn't so lucky with the weather - The guide was very nice and competent. For me, it was a great opportunity to see the countryside, get around easily, and learn a lot about the area. Many thanks for enriching my Canada experiences!

This was awesome! The bus driver was very knowledgeable about the area and history, it was very organized and we didn't feel rushed at all. Both the ice fields and the skywalk we great as well. We would highly recommend it

Misunderstanding on the pickup point meant the day didn't start well but thanks to Mike and Michelle from Brewsters, we caught up with our tour at the Athabasca waterfall. Fantastic weather meant that the parkway was absolutely stunning. Arrived at Brewster Icefield Centre which was busy but well maintained. Choice of food and beverages good. You have to take a transfer coach from the centre to a staging point to board a Snow Coach (about 10 minutes) - take warm clothes as glaciere is cool even on sunny days! Journey on Snow Coach is amazing as is the purported cost of $1,200,000 each! Once you get to the glaciere terminus, you can't even see the Brewset Centre but the views are tremendous. We where the only customers returning to Jasper so once again, Brewsters came up trumps by providing us with our own personal minibus transfer - the driver went out of his way to make sure we saw plenty of widlife on the trip back.

A brilliant day out, got to see the sights, enjoy the glaciers and even experienced a snow storm whilst on top of the glaciers! Would highly recommend for all those who want to see a different side to the Rockies! Wrap up warm!

Four of us waited outside our hotel for the bus to pick us up on time. The bus was very comfortable with ample room. At Athabasca Falls we were allowed some time to explore the canyon and photograph the falls. We stopped when it was safe to view a bear feeding beside the road. We were delivered to the Icefields Centre and were given clear instructions on what time and where our next bus would be leaving from. It is a very busy place and we were treated well. Our next diver told us a lot about the icefields. Once at the icefields we had to board the Ice Explorer to take us onto the glacier itself. We had plenty of time to experience this wonder. Then it was back to the Icefields Center, where we had more time to visit the interpretive centre and eat lunch before boarding the bus to return to our hotel. We were lucky enough to see another bear so we stopped for more photos. The whole experience was well worth the money. Thank you to all those involved.

This was a wonderful experience although the pictures posted by Viator advertising the tour are somewhat misleading. The ice fields are very crowded and not nearly as pristine as advertised.

I loved this trip. We had a great day and the weather was beautiful. The stop at Athabasca Falls was really special, then to go out on the Columbia Icefield on the arctic tractor was fun. What an Experience! The skywalk was a wonderful way to feel part of the environment. Then it snowed.... As an Australian, the snow experience was an added extra.
Great day

The last day of tours to the Columbia Icefields before things close down for the winter.

Pick up was early and driver was very good. All of transport was on time and good quality. we returned later on in the day in a car type vehilcle as others were directed to other tours.
Weather was mixed. The trip to the Glacier was amazing.
We enjoyed the trip compliment the tour and driver. Happy to endorse and recommend , but don't leave to this late in the season.

This started out as the best sight seeing tour ever. FIVE Stars! The bus was new and the driver/guide was excellent. We stopped at many beautiful vistas for picture taking. They even provided a souvenir drink mug during a snack and coffee break. Several times we were told we were to have a hot buffet lunch. And, after such a nice roadside snack our expectations were indeed high. But, the lunch was horrible lukewarm and a strange mix - no need to give further description. That was it. The rest of the tour went on to see Banff I think and the remaining tourists that had only signed up for the Columbia Icefield and Glacier Skywalk were sent to wait for an hour to return to pick up points. When they came for us, we were cramped into an employee shuttle van that made economy class air travel look luxurious. Myself, I would have preferred a cold sandwich with a hot cup of coffee for lunch. And, they must have had some mix up sending a van to pick us up. I mean, Really - they can't afford a decent shuttle bus to take us back to our destinations?

interesting journey out with a knowledgeable and helpful driver, good organisation at the icefields less pleased with uncomfortable ride back to Jasper in packed mini-coach.

Rather crowded at the Glacier/Icefield and delay in return trip due to Brewster 'scheduling' problems, did not help one's positive frame of mind. But the initial Brewster bus driver was excellent and everything was fine until the scheduling problem involving the return of a number of customers to Jasper in a different vehicle somewhat spoilt the day.

The tour was great at the start. We were in a beautiful nice bus, the guide was awesome. After the icefields and the skywalk we were put into a not so nice bumpy van without a tour guide. The 90 minute ride back to the hotel in silence was not fun.

Good trip. Tour guide Alistair was excellent. Felt that we could have spent more time on the actual Icefield as we only had around 15-20 minutes on the ice. The rest of the trip was spent either on the bus, the Visitor Centre or the Skywalk.

The tour itself was great, but we wish there was more time for pictures and viewing. They stopped at a few spots along the highway for pictures and it didn't give enough time to enjoy the scenery. Travelling with 2 smaller kids made it feel a little rushed at times. There was definitely not enough time at the skywalk to split up as we had 1 little one sleeping on the bus and could not leave her. So by the time one got back to switch there wasn't enough time for the other person to go and we rushed through quick, not enjoying the view. Next time we go, we'll be doing that one privately so we can take our time and enjoy it more. Our bus driver for the tour and the snow coach were both great and very friendly.
