Excellent visit, very rewarding and very friendly. Small flat: it was not in French. For non-bilinguals or francophones it is difficult to understand when it is not in your mother tongue ... but we had been warned! Thank you and I will come back to Calgary again to do the guided tour a second time. BIG THANK YOU.

A visit to Calgary Tower is a must for all visitors of the city. The views are great, glass floor section was fun and their staff is super nice. I spent about 30 minutes there, it was definitely worth the money.

It was like a private tour, we were the only people. The driver and guide were very nice people. It was just a pity that a very strong wind was blowing, so we couldn't stand on land at a viewing post.

The guides were truly excellent. They were informative and gave a very detailed tour. Taking this tour will take you to all the major sites. Thrilled yo have taken this tour.

Thé tour guide was very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our tour and learned so much about Calgary. Thank you for making this tour available.
