Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway - Full-Day Tour
Excellent tour! Ask for Robbie. He was our guide and did a smashing job. Easy to converse with and he knew his way around. Honestly, most people will try to do this themselves to save money but the excursions take away all the fuss you'll go through. Highly recommended!

Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway - Full-Day Tour
Awesome guided tour from Robbie through the most beautiful places around Banff. He was very knowledgeable and shared so many great stories throughout our trip. It was a great day out and we even saw a grizzly bear and a black bear on our way - so worth it. It was a hot day and Robbie went extra mile and included an extra stop for us to cool off under a beautiful waterfall. Very friendly and fun company - would highly recommend this tour.

Robbie was amazing! He was so informative and knew everything about the lakes, mountains and towns! Highly recommend this tour. My son and I had a great experience and hope to be back soon! We even seen two bears along the way! Robbie also took us to see another incredible waterfall to cool down that wasn’t on the itinerary, totally went out of his way! Thanks so much Robbie!!

Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway - Full-Day Tour
We absolutely loved this tour. Rob was a wonderful informative guide who insured everyone had a good time. He was very warm with interesting stories about the area and the park. A full day of stunning scenery, Rob made sure to plan our arrival at areas of interest ahead of the major crowds so we could have the best experience possible. We also appreciated his willingness to take pictures of everyone on the tour. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

We would like to thank Robbie our tour guide he went above and beyond and was excellent. He was very knowledgeable with the area having grown up around here and took it very easy on the very slippery roads he even had Christmas treats his family baked for us all and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks again Robbie in a job well done!

Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway - Full-Day Tour
The tour was by van, so smaller group than the bigger tours, makes it easier to visit the sites. Tour is very complete with multiple stops.
