Hats off to our tourist guide Joey M!! He did an excellent job above and beyond our expectation. Getting this tour is worth it with all the convenience fr the hotel pick up to each strategic spots for phototaking. Joey M even took the initiative to be the official photographer of our group. Its also worth mentioning that with a tour guide like Joey, we skipped all the long waiting lines and the hassle of finding parking spots! We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the best of banff in one day!

I travelled with my daughter and my parents and our tour guides Jef and Gabe were very accommodating. Since this is a private tour, we didn't feel rushed to get to another location. We get to take our time and enjoy the scenery. I highly recommend this tour. We will definitely book with them again when we go back to Calgary.
