Nicholas W.February 19, 2020 | 

Quality trip with plenty of fantastic views, the bus drivers were helpful and friendly and the bus its self was very comfortable! There's enough stops on the way to stretch your legs and use the washroom that you'll barely have to use the one on board, overall very happy with my trip!

Nice bus ride. Even in winter conditions, bus was on time. Comfortable seats and toilet inside. Enough breaks to get some snacks.

the driver ron is amazing and cool

Vincent M.November 11, 2019 | 

Great overall. Good comfort, on time, professional staff. The only issue is that the bus was idling for no reason during breaks, sometimes for 30min in a row in a mild day. So much fuel wasted and avoidable carbon emissions.

David James T.November 11, 2019 |

Very good driver is responsible

Linda H.September 28, 2019 | 

Both drivers were friendly and professional and ensured all passengers were respectful of others space and need for quiet. Often checked on us for feedback on temperature. Only reason bus was late is because we hit a snowstorm after Canmore. Our driver put our safety over schedule and I felt he was a very competent driver. Bus was clean and comfortable. Great trip.
