I have 2 options fly into Calgary from Toronto June 8th evening and attend workshop in Edmonton starting evening June 12th to June 14th in the afternoon, leave for Toronto from Edmonton or fly into Edmonton, attend the workshop until June 14th and fly out of Calgary to Toronto.
Can you suggest what would be the best, economical way to do this? What coach tours would you recommend, I can take a whole day trip or side trips or is there a one tour that would cover whatever there is to see and return to Calgary? I will be on budget. I do not know how I will do the transfer between the cities. Also how can I include Jasper in this trip, would it make sense to do a return trip from Calgary to Jasper or just head towards Jasper stay there for a night (it is difficult to get one night stay, most Private Places insist on 2 nights in private homes for a single female) and make my way to Edmonton or Calgary whichever option I take with public transportation? Also what is there in Jasper to see for me during perhaps daytime before I make my way either way?
Which transportation company would have reasonable fares to go from either Edmonton to Jasper and or Jasper to Calgary and vice versa? Rather than taking a coach tour, could I just take some local transportation say from Calgary to Banff, spend a day there and return to Calgary?
Being single and a non driver makes planning difficult to sightsee your beautiful areas on a budget.
I would very much welcome any suggestions/advice.
