11 of us had a blast with Petar's kind and knowledgeable guide. We saw amazing sights including 2 grizzly bears beside the roads, one with 2 cubs. Several elk/deer. First time we went to Lake Louise it was cloudy so Petar took us back next morning and it was glorious! Lake Morraine was out of this world. Thank you Petar... More

Vivian was very helpful in organising another tour for us - Lone Wolf Tours with Paul. Paul was fantastic and took the two of us last minute. He was like... More

Our priority is ensuring every guest, and potential guest experiences the best Alberta has to offer. Unfortunately, due to specific tour criteria, sometimes we’re forced to make the disheartening decision of cancelling a tour. When that happens, we’ll go the extra step to ensure every guest gets to experience Alberta, even if it means passing business to our ‘competitors’. Besides,... More

This was our last stop on our Canadian Rockies Vacation. We had an extra day in Calgary and it could not have been spent any better than with Peter and his day tour. We had a great time at Olympic Park including a ride on the Luje. Peters knowledge of the city of Calgary was impressive and we all enjoyed... More

We took the 1/2 day city tour. Petar does a great job providing a good overview of the city. It was lots of fun visiting the former winter Olympic site. He takes you to a number of places where you get excellent views of the city.

My boyfriend and I went on the Drumheller Badlands Tour and we had a wonderful time! The attractions were amazing but having Petar as our tour guide made it even more enjoyable for us. Petar was great and his knowledge and friendliness would make any tour worth while. Next time we're in Calgary, I'd be interested in booking them again!... More
