excellent tour, full value for money. guide was excellent; knowledgeable, patient and did everything possible to make the trip memorable. Lake Louise was fantastic, the gondola ride to the mountain top restaurant was terrific and the food and service were excellent, as were the views. Piece de resistance was getting up close to the grizzly bear, "Boo". Absolutely loved the complete day! Would heartily recommend.

FABULOUS DAY- Great introduction to BANFF AREA by the guide and from there on the day just got better.
The visit to the ski park in GOLDEN was an eye opener followed by a great lunch at the restaurant.
We were "' BLESSED '" as we obtained great photos of the bear and a very informative talk from the staff
working at the refuge. Finally a visit to the waterfall in the national park capped what was a GREAT TIME.
I'm sure everyone who was on the tour feel the same about the high standard set by the guide who made
all of us fell VERY WELCOME.
