Having scaled a glacier in Alaska, this tour was really COOL. You rode in an Ice Explorer whose tires were almost five foot tall. This vehicle transported us to the ice field as we listened to commentary from our young Brewster Travel guide. Once on the ice, we were allowed to walk within the safety zones. A glass of glacier water could be had. The glacier skywalk was less spectacular as you walked over a glass bottomed pathway.

Great trip and guides.

The tour was pretty good for the most part. Lunch buffet was so so, not as nice as I expected. Our driver was great except we had trouble understanding his accent. We were dropped off at the depot to wait 90 minutes and never got to see downtown Banff. Lake Louise and the scenic parts were wonderful

We were picked up at 6am and returned to Calgary at 9pm so it was a very long day. Apart from about 30 minutes at Lake Louise, 2 hours at the glacier and a couple of brief stops, the rest of the day was spent travelling, but this did give us fabulous views of mountains, rivers, turquoise lakes and glaciers The buffet lunch was very nice, lots of choice. The trip onto the glacier was fun. Our driver, Nick gave us some interesting information about the vehicle and the glacier. Actually walking on the glacier was amazing, though crowded. The Skywalk was scary, unless you like walking on a glass floor. Our coach driver gave a running commentary and was able to name many of the mountains and glaciers we were passing.

This was an awesome tour. Driver and hostess the best! The beauty of Banff, Lake Louise, the scenery during this tour amazing and the Ice field and glaziers beyond description. Highly recommend, The only improvement would have been the buffet lunch at the glacier. There were always empty items and when asked staff did not seem to be concerned. After a long trip a tasty lunch would have been appreciated.

Clayton, out Guide was very knowledgable. We would have preferred to have an extended stay in Banff area. Columbia Icefields were over crowded. Area where we were allowed to walk on, was very small and limiting. Lunch was mediocre. Although we arrived 20 minutes early for our return trip to Calgary, we did not have enough time to enjoy dinner in Banff as advertised. Feel this excursion was overpriced.
