  • Rating: 5 “Highlight of Canada vacation”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Slough, United Kingdom on September 1st, 2013 This drive across the Icefields of Columbia was the highlight of our 3 fantastic weeks in Canada this summer. Marie was our guide and she couldn't have been better, full of energy, enthusiasm, knowledge and charm, she rounded off a perfect trip. The icefields themselves are of course amazing and I really enjoyed going up the Athabasca glacier. Highly reccommended for sure!


  • Rating: 4 “beautiful!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Seattle, United States on July 25th, 2013 unbeatable landscapes and very good, friendly guide. i had expected to see more animals (especially, i really wanted to get to see a bear), so that was a bit disappointing. otherwise great tho!


  • Rating: 5 “Nature lover in heaven”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Toronto, Canada on June 12th, 2013 This was really a series of breathtaking stops topped off with the singularly amazing experience of the Athabasca -- for a nature lover like me, it was basically heaven. Thanks to Benn for making our time even more amazing than it would inevitably have been!
