The tour was great. They cover lots of different spots. The tour guide was great as well. The only concern I have is with "Get Your Guide" team who mentioned the hotel I stayed is not a pick up place so we walked to the nearest spot in a rainy day but the tour bus came to our hotel looking for us and they mentioned that they cover most of the hotels as their pickup locations. "Get Your Guide" team, please keep that in mind from next time.

We loved the views and knowledge our tour guide had. The only thing that didn’t work out for us was that our 9 year old found the snow shoes too difficult to maneuver. As a result, we did not snowshoe and just took advantage of the picture taking opportunity. Beautiful place!

Shauna was an amazing guide. She shared a lot of information about the area, took us to the tea house and helped us to safely climb the mountain there. Thanks Shauna for sharing your knowledge and humor. We enjoyed our time with you. Judy and Wendy

Wonderful sunny day for the tour. The tour guide Rob was very good at story telling the whole ride there and back. The tour bus goes slowly on the highway which is good otherwise we'd be bounching off our seats.

Tim was an exceptional guide!! He had so much knowledge, filled with facts and jokes - definitely recommend this trip to everyone :)
