Well worth the trip! Make sure to call and reconfirm pick up point and time with the tour agency number provided it's very likely Brewster to avoid any confusion the morning of, since pick-up time is usually at the crack of dawn. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency, and no pickup was available at our hotel, but it was a short walk to the Fairmont where we and a couple of other passengers were picked up around 6:15AM. After a two hour bus ride to Banff, we transferred to our main coach at the Brewster Station, for the one-way trip to Jasper. The 10-hour trek into the beautiful Canadian Rockies has commenced! It was a long ride, but you will never feel the length since there were enough stops to alight from the bus and enjoy the scenery - one more beautiful than the next. We stopped for lunch at the Icefields Parkway Observatory - it was included in the tour, and was a buffet in the building restaurant. I suppose the place had to cater to the many Chinese tourists that descend in that area, that lunch was a weird combination of salads and Chinese dishes made poorly. We had enough time after lunch to explore the observatory, before boarding the bus for our pre-assigned tour time of the Columbia Icefield. The massive Icefield Explorer vehicles were impressive, and make sure to dress warmly. In a hot August summer, the place was about 40F and one must have sturdy hiking shoes, as the ice on the ice field is definitely tricky! Make sure to bring an empty water bottle with you, as don't miss your chance of tasting some awesome glacier water! Then off we went to another pre-assigned tour time of the Glacier Skywalk for breathtaking views. Boarding the bus again, the last stop about half an hour from Jasper is the Athabasca Falls. We arrived at Jasper close to about 6pm, enough time to check-in and enjoy this charming town for our next destination. There are so many awe-inspiring sights on this tour, it is so hard to pick a favorite. But if your trip entails a route from Calgary to Jasper, this tour is the best thing to take, hands down! The stops were well-thought of, the tours very organized, and the comfort second to none.

This was the longest day, and I was feeling pretty hesitant about the long journey. However, it was by far the best day of my 17 day holiday - enough pit stops, so many sights, a great guide Mitch, and the most beautiful scenery. So glad we opted to do this journey through the Rockies.

This tour gave us a one way ride to Jasper and all the lovely views enroute. The highlights were lake Louise, the Columbia ice fields, the glacier sky walk, the peyto lake and many more sceneries on way. The time given to explore each point was adequate and we reached by evening and we could explore

We went with Brewsters tours who were excellent despite a miscommunication from Viator. We were led to understand the tour bus would be picking us up from our Hotel, the Delta Calgary, we were up at 6 am and waiting for the bus to arrive. The bus from Brewsters did not turn up, when we contacted Brewsters they told us they had not been asked to pick us from our Hotel but another hotel in downtown Calgary. We then had to pay 300 dollars for a taxi to catch up with the bus in Banff! The tour itself was excellent and Brewsters were helpful. Aviator were not available to help us! I would recommend Brewsters but go direct.

Very good trip. Picked up 6.15am, in Calgary, transferred to a coach in Banff. First visit Lake Louise, beautiful scenery. Then onto Bow Lake, next Peyto Lake which was stunning. Lunch which was included in the price, was at the Columbia Icefields, very good. The ride on the ice explorer was great. All in all good value and we were dropped off at our apartment.
