Couldn't have been happier with the service provided to and from Lake Louise. I received a personal text from the driver the night before the pick up. He explained our pick up time and location. He even sent a picture of the bus, so we would know what to look for. Both of the drivers showed up on time and the bus was clean and as warm as possible in -33 weather. It was a pleasure meeting both drivers. They were professional, courteous, friendly and they shared some great stories about themselves and the area. What a great experience that made our trip easy and relaxing.

Bus was on time to pick us up at the Calgary Airport, and we left on time. Bus was very comfortable, clean and offered free wifi. Driver, Mike, was courteous, very pleasant and the drive to Banff was smooth and the scenery was just jaw-dropping. Will definitely be using them again !

Amaan was my driver and tour guide. He was beyond fantastic! Amaan made sure to stop on various viewpoints and helped take photos for me. He was very knowledgeable and kind. Thank you for a magical day and memories I will treasure forever.

Our driver was so helpful and knowledgeable. We had a fabulous day, he knew just where best photos could be taken and we avoided the crowds and we went at our own pace. Thanks Manny.

The tour guide is well knowledgeable of the history of Calgary! Amazing experience!
