Hello. We wanted to say thank you for the Calgary 3-hour bus tour we took during our stay in Calgary, Canada on Monday, Oct 30, 2023. We had a two day visit to Calgary and were able to get the tour on Monday. It was a great tour of the city and we learned a lot about the city history. Our tour guide, Jill, was very knowledgeable about the city, welcoming and answered all our questions. We had a great time. Our favorite stops were at the Peace bridge, cowboy arena (thank you for the closer look), city view from the hill and Olympic park. We also had a walker on the trip and I wanted to thank the driver TJ for accommodating our needs during the trip and also during our stop for a break at a visitor plaza. Our visit to Calgary was just a couple of days but thanks to the tour provided by the company, we were able to get the glimpse of the city and we also had some free time for ourselves. Thank you for making our visit enjoyable!

The tour guide was very informative, we enjoyed her commentary very much, and would definitely recommend her the bus driver and the tour to colleagues and friends.

Great Tour, very informative and great value for money. The guides were very knowledgeable and welcoming. We enjoyed it very much.
