What people are saying about Jasper
Trip was well worth it. The guide had a great deal of useful infornation and together we all spotted a number of animals we had not previously encountered while hiking.
My first time whitewater rafting, and it was amazing!! From the guides to the view and experience, it was great and would recommend this to anyone and everyone.
This was a great tour. Ryan, our tour guide, was great, and he knew a great deal about the flora & fauna of the Canadian Rockies. We saw wapiti (elk), timber wolves, coyotes, osprey, a bald eagle... the only thing we didn’t see was a bear, but Ryan did his best to find one. Ryan was amazed that we saw the wolves, and said that this was the first time this year that he’d seen them himself. This was a truly nice way to see the area without needing to drive. We had ample opportunities to get off the bus for photos. We would recommend this tour for families and people of all ages.
Great tour, well organized. Good Guide with a lot of background info about wildlife in the park. Absolutely worth the price ! and can only be recommended.
