Icefields Pkwy: Lake Louise | Bow Lake | Peyto Lake | Glacier - PRIVATE DAY TOUR
Another solid tour from ABest tours. To our delight, we had Manny as our tour guide again! Icefields, Peyto Lake, Bow Lake and an impromptu stop at Mistaya Canyon on our drive back to the hotel was truly an unexpected delight. We couldn’t be happier with the ease of booking through viator.com as well as the wonderful service we received from ABest.

Private Tour of Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway for up to 12 guests
A truly incredible experience! We saw some of the most beautiful places on earth. Rob was an excellent tour guide and provided valuable insight about each stop. Traveling in a small, private group was truly the best way to see Banff National Park!

Glacier Day Tour: Calgary, Bow Lake, Columbia Icefield
It was great to step out on the ice and enjoy the cold!! The time window actually on the ice was very short, given the time it took to get there.

Lake Louise and the Icefields Parkway - Full-Day Tour
We had a wonderful day with Rob as our tour guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly. We saw Two Jack Lake, Lake Minnewanka, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Crowfoot Glacier, Bow Glacier and Bow Lake. The views were incredible. Out of 1 - 10, I’d rate Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake twelves and the rest 10s. Our pictures are awesome! And we were able to see elk, sheep and a bear, too! A great experience!

We completely enjoyed our tour with Robbie! He is very knowledgeable and we felt safe as he expertly maneuvered our bus through mountain roads and tight parking lots. Robbie took us to several places with amazing views! Great way to spend a day in the beautiful Rocky Mountains!
