Jasper city part of the tour was not...

Jasper city part of the tour was not good- the hospital, school and a couple of churches were pointed out. Maligne Lake was OK.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour and I'm sure anyone going on it would too. Our guides, Bianca and especially Dustin were interesting, humorous and had plenty of anecdotes about life in Jasper, like when out on a run don't surprise a bear!
From the title of this tour I expected we'd be taken around Jasper town centre having places of interest pointed out, well that didn't happen. Having said that Jasper has such a small centre you can walk around and see most of it in a 1/2 hour or less.
I thought the tour was a bit expensive but it was enjoyable and as I wasn't driving I was able to really enjoy the scenery.
This tour was excellent. I booked through TripAdvisor which didn't seem to offer much information about the tour as far as the itinerary was concerned. Our driver and guide, Brad and Chris, picked us up from our hotel and we got on the very nice coach bus. There were only about 10 people on the tour with us, which was great! we made a few stops on the way and were able to take several pictures at each stop. Then we went to Maligne Lake for the boat cruise. You are with more people on the boat. The cruise was great! It was informative and the views were great. You do get a chance to grab some food before the cruise, which is nice. Then back on the bus! Brad gave us some GREAT suggestions on places to go hiking. Overall great tour and awesome guides!
This is a great trip and an absolutely gorgeous lake! Highly recommend this tour. Keep in mind that if you drive yourself you have to find a place to park especially hard on crowded days. This tour gave us ample time to roam the different stops. Our tour guide was great. Get ready for one of the most beautiful trips of your life.
Our tour exceeded our expectations. Our driver and our guide were outstanding. They explained everything thoroughly. The bus was always where Andy, the driver, said it would be. He was willing to stop for animal sightings and would move the bus so everyone could get a glimpse. He willingly answered all questions asked.
Excellent trip. Our driver was a mine of information, he even found a black bear and an elk by the side of the road for us! Weather could have been better on lake maligne but still a great day out. Definitely recommend !
The Maligne Lake Cruise was fantastic. It was a way to get another perspective of this beautiful area. It is a shame there wasn't a little more time on the island before turning around pack to the pier. The Transfer to and from the cruise was good, with the opportunity to see some sights along the way.
