The journey is a big part of the enjoyment on this tour, and the driver kept us well-informed about the significance of many landmarks, geological and historical facts, with knowledge and humour - plus wildlife sightings. The Sky Walk, was an exciting highlight of the day. The incredible beauty of the natural landscape and the awe-inspiring feat of engineering that makes the unique perspective possible. The attraction is well-organized with supplemental info on a free personal audio device that allows you to learn while you watch instead of being distracted by too much reading. The Columbia Ice field experience is pretty cool for all ages. That attraction site was also very well-organized, keeping visitors moving with equal time to enjoy the visit. Was also a good idea to allow some chill time at the lodge where there are hot drinks, a great outdoor terrace and very clean bathrooms. A fresh boxed lunch is included in tour.
The tour was breathtaking, and our guide Chris was amazing. Not only was he really knowledgable, but nothing was too much trouble for him....he even pulled a grizzly out of the bag!
