We went during the quieter period (end October) and we only had one other person in our tour with us which made for a more personalised experience. Our tour guide Peter was lovely and had many stories to share. It's such a beautiful part of the world and I would highly recommend doing this tour with Hammerhead Scenic Tours!!! Thanks Peter - make sure you visit us if you're ever in Australia.
For pick up to drop off Petar was friendly, accommodating, and full of great stories and useful information. The scenery was incredible, of course. It was made all the better because of comfortable transport and a knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended.
Petar was absolutely fantastic. He was very personable, polite and informative. He was flexible with negotiations of times at venues. Great tour - small group in a comfortable car. No other way to see Banff and Lake Louise. 10/10.
Pietar is a fantastic tour guide - knowledgeable, engaging, easy-going and flexible. We enjoyed the Banff tour immensely and would book it again anytime!
We had troubles finding a tour that wasn't fully booked and when we found this we were surprised at the value for money compared with similar tours. After booking the tour Peter personally kept us updated with times etc. The tour itself covers some beautiful scenery and spectacular views, helped by sunny weather. Peter is very good at giving information in an entertaining manner and conducts the tour as much as possible round his clients. eg stops for photos, washroom breaks etc. We would advise anyone wishing to book this tour to book through Hammerhead Tours as Peter certainly is knowledgeable and friendly.
