Kept us from being bored! We started driving from Calgary airport towards Banff National Park and we timed the audio tour to start playing when we got into the mountains about an hour out, since the driving took 2 1/2 hours, but the tour is only almost 1 1/2 hours. We timed it perfectly and the tour went really well, as it described the places and history of them, as we went by. Good value, as there’s a set cost for up to 8 people that was less than $7!

This tour is fantastic, you get to go to places you would never find on your own! The guide was knowledgeable and soooo friendly. Would highly recommend

An absolutely fantastic nice day, really nice trip! Really nice and accommodating guide, skilled and friendly horses. Thank you for a lovely day
