The tour proceeded despite the fact that there were no other joiners. The guide was friendly and polite. The places visited were very significant. Highly recommended especially to solo travellers who want to have a view of the city.

The tour itself turned out to be a tour of economic Edmonton which we did not realize until we were told it at the end. It took in a visit on the outsold Edmonton to the municipal recycling depot. Possibly the highlight of the tour...More
