I did a Rocky Mountaineer Tour from Calgary to Vancouver. My experience with the Bus Drivers was mostly good. However the driver who picked me up and then dropped me off at the conclusion of the tour was very bad. Not only was dumped in front of hotel in Vancouver because he couldn't be bothered dropping me at the train... More

Actually, no rating at all. No bus tours available for the last few days of the Glacier Skywalk season. Disappointed !

Dear lmmacd, Thank you for your interest in our Glacier Adventure and Glacier Skywalk experience. I was concerned to read your comments about our seasonal attractions early closure. As per our website www.brewster.ca we advertise our final day of operation as October 19th with our late season scheduled hours: 10:00am – 4:00pm. I can confirm the Glacier Adventure and Glacier...

Brewster is very reliable, on time with a great selection of hotels. The scenery speaks for itself and the Icefields Parkway was dramatic. The only negative of our trip was the driver from Jasper to Banff, he was basically silent when a little commentary would have helped us understand the great beauty we were seeing. The driver from Banff to... More

Excellent tour of Banff and on to Calgary with gondola ride and helicopter. This was part of a package through Rocky Mountaineer. Our driver/guide, Ted, was the best. Slight problem due to an engine malfunction on the way to Calgary but Ted kept everyone clam and entertained till help arrived.

Wonderful experience with Brewsters. We arrived at Calgary airport and had a great drive to Banff with a friendly driver who was still enthusiastic about the Rockies though he must do the trip many times a week! We were lucky enough to have seats at the very front of the coach, so wonderful views as the mountains got closer and... More

Best day of our holiday. Stopped at lots of sights for just the right amount of time. The driver was excellent and very informative. The timings were perfect at the icefields and skywalk, and we arrived at Jasper in good time. Wish Brewster worked in Europe too!

Talk about professional travel services, this is one. Arrived in Calgary YYC and made it through customs . Found the Brewster travel desk just outside the customs exit and checked in. Had 3:30 pm reservations but got there just in time to make the 2:00pm coach. What service. That's when we met our coach driver Andy. What a gentleman. He... More

We went to the Rockies for the first time in September 2014. As we didn't have a car, we booked a Brewsters transfer from our hotel in Downtown Calgary to our hotel in Banff. The weather was really freaky and changed overnight from being sunny and 23 degrees to minus 2 and heavy snow. The bus picked us up on... More

While visiting Canada for the Rocky Mountaineer trip all of our transportation was provided by Brewster Bus Tours. The bus drivers were so informative about the area and one driver was able to name each mountain and explain the story behind it. We spent a lot time sightseeing the area in luxury and comfort. We even saw Elk in Jasper... More

We spent 3 weeks touring Canada and several trips and transfers with Brewster. Hysterical. It was like a comedy reality TV show. Every booking had an issue, rarely were we on the passenger list despite confirming prior. The bus drivers consistently complained " they do this to me all the time". We just got on handed our coupon in and... More
