We were on this tour with a company called Brewsters which I had been booked via our agent in the uk Journeys A La Carte, and what an-inspired choice it was. We were very lucky that we dropped on a wonderful sunny day which showed the Rockies off to wonderful effect, our driver Mike was full of information and "extra" little stops at always fantastic viewing points. The trip on the Ice Explorer on the Athabasca glacier was a real fun experience and to walk on a glacier was something new that anyone could enjoy.it is almost unfair to single out one part of this trip because to do the whole is a must do . Could not recommend this journey higher than its a must do if you are ever in this area for a vacation

A beautiful relaxing jouney from Banff to Jasper we spotted various wildlife and found the snow-topped mountains picturesque, a must!

Jaw-droppingly beautiful and rugged from start to finish with tons of stops you really have to make along the way, especially the Athabasca glacier (climb up to it) and Athabasca falls. I will treasure the memories of this journey from Banff to Jasper FOREVER. Do it. Just do it! Allow yourself the day to make the journey with all the stopovers you want to take....and enjoy!

Having lived in Calgary for 35 years,This road has been one of the best places in Alberta to visit over the years.Loads of excellent photo taking locations throughout,lots of places to stop.Everything for the outdoor enthusiast or like me,a driving enthusiast (Having done most of the tourist stuff already) Just had the opportunity to drive this road with a friend who has never been on it before from Jasper to Banff for the umpteenth time and it's still awe inspiring..Well recommended to all..

So is absolutely every roadway in the Canadian Rockies.
They are all picture postcard beautiful.
I guess I was disappointed because I expected even more beauty.
And disappointed again at the Visitor Centers, where their museum is closed for the whole year for remodleing.
