This is the best way to see the sights between Lake Louise and Jasper. We started the tour and got so much useful information. The guide told us what to expect coming up and where to stop. History of the places. We were free to come and go as we wanted to. Not spend alot of time or if we wanted to, we could take more time. It was awesome and well worth it.

We drove from Lake Louise to Jasper and back and listened to the audio tour both ways. It was fantastic to hear the information about the sites along the way! We knew what to look for, where to took, what we were seeing and where to stop. Would have definitely missed some highlights without it. Commentator was entertaining as well. Highly recommend!

Very well done with interesting facts and also multiple choice questions about the area. Learned a lot about the various attractions along the way. However, there is a stop called Maligne Lake saying it was 15 km away. Crazy, but the next day we decided to go as far as Maligne Lake without referring to a physical map. We thought it was on the Icefield's Pathway as the narrator had mentioned it when we had been on the Parkway the day before. We didn't have access to a physical map, so ended up going quite far on the parkway until we realized that Maligne Lake was not on the Parkway. We consulted a physical map and found it east of Jasper, not south. A physical map can really make a difference to not getting lost. I think if the attraction is not close by, the narrator shouldn't mention it.
