The gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain was fantastic. But WOW!! the view from the top was awesome.
All other stops were fantastic too. I upgraded and did the Lake Minnewanka Cruise, glade I did. The cruise guides
were telling us the the history and many interesting tales about the area, some of witch were very funny.
They kept us entertained. I would recommend doing this tour.

Great tour. Tour guides were great. Time spent and places visited were perfect for seeing the highlights of the Banff area. We took this tour on one day and then the Mountains and Waterfalls the next day. It worked out perfect as there were no repeat places we visited. Picked up and returned to our hotel on time.
