Very professional, informative, knowledgeable, narrative by Judy. We toured the most photographic viewpoints in Calgary. We stopped at locations that allowed photographs, nutrient breaks, and a great museum of vintage automobiles. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see everything Calgary has to offer and the history that made it happen !!

This was an amazing experience. My husband and I were escorted around town on a fun and informative tour. The guide were excellent and we were entertained and saw the sights. This is a much try experience. If you love motor cycles it is especially fun.

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.

My husband and I took our 12-year-old grandson. We all loved it! Great information about the city, congenial and knowledgeable guides/drivers, safe and comfortable ride. Highly recommend!

It was amazing, nice lady's and super nice explanations, love it !
