The trip to the mountain lakes was absolutely mind-blowing. The tour guide and the driver shared incredible facts and historical background of the places I visited. But did miss waterfalls as the road was blocked. Overall was a great experience.

I was a little skeptical while purchasing the $ 230.00 Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls day trip from Calgary. However, after my trip I have absolutely no regrets. So glad that I purchased this tour. It was just amazing. I wish we had more time to spend and explore each location. However, we covered so many iconic spots that spending more time at each location was not an option. This day trip will remain as one of my most memorable trips. I travelled alone and encountered no problems. I never felt alone and met such amazing people. Every detail of the trip was well planned, organized and everything was on time. Many many thanks to our expert driver Rebecca and tour guide Lui. Rebecca's driving skills are fabulous!!! I highly recommend this tour. This trip reflects the quote- “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”

Jon, our driver was great! He was very confident and also had a wealth of information about the area. McKenzie was also fabulous. She was very professional and kind to everyone. I would highly recommend this tour of the different mountains, lakes, and waterfalls. The only disappointment was that we had 15 minutes to visit Lake Louise at the Fairmont Hotel. I would have loved to stay there all afternoon!

I was hesitant with the price initially, but it was mostly worth it. The bus is luxurious - reclining with phone charger ports. The staff is friendly. It is for sure a long day but it is worth it looking back. They do cover the most beautiful spots. Best was the sit down lunch outside Emerald Lake. Moraine was the best view lake. Overall was close to what I wanted to achieve.

Amazing trip. This was a great day with incredible scenery. There is a lot of driving on this trip, but the buses were extremely comfortable and there was beautiful scenery all day. It was an incredibly great and relaxing day. Our driver (Mike), and tour guide (Joe) were fantastic.

This was a great day trip, and I recommend it for anyone staying near this area. Mike and Joe were great, and we learned a lot. The scenery was breathtaking. I don't think we could have had this great an experience had we tried to do it on our own.
