Awesome tour, My husband and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Ellie (our tour guide) was very friendly and professional and went above and beyond to book my husband and I into the SkyBistro (which she didn’t have to do) so that we could have a romantic dinner together,We also left our bags in the bus at the bottom of Sulfur Mountain and our bags were brought to us (which they didn’t have to do) we were so happy she could do this for us. The snowshoe walk on lake minnewanka was jaw droppingly beautiful and after that Ellie made us a hot chocolate which was just perfect. Ellie and Brad (the driver) were funny, knew their stuff and my husband and I are so happy with the tour.
