Very enjoyable and informative tour, both on the bus and on the boat ... Equally great.

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.

Fantastic day. Maligne lake cruise was great. We saw a lot from the boat and the visited the Spirit Island which was beautiful. We had an informative guide as well.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

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.

My favourite tour!!! A must do for all! Beautiful scenery of Maligne Lake and Spirit Island. Was able to capture some pictures which looked like postcards. My friends couldn't believe they were real. Andy, the tour guide, was also very friendly and gave a lot of information about the Canadian Rockies.
