Cowboy Bus
Ranked #15 of 22 Transportation in Calgary
Attraction details
Reviewed June 22, 2011


A hop on/off bus tour is always a fantastic way to see and get the feel of a new city. Part of the tour is an informative description of local attractions and items of historical interest.

The Cowboy Bus Tour in Calgary was the WORST tour a visitor to a city could ever take. Worst in the World.

First of all the bus was 2 hours late. After waiting 45 mins after the scheduled arrival time, we called the number on the pamphlet only to be told the bus would not arrive for another hour and a half! When the old bus finally arrived, the driver who cleverly feigned inability to understand English, had a handful of disgruntled Australians on board, then us.

They thought they were on the blue tour, but we insisted on the red.
The driver compromised by driving the red tour, while playin g the squarkiing audio of the blue tour , and when questioned about an interesting building, he did not have a clue . We were all good natured Australians but were appalled at this tour. and we are hoping this entry will prevent unsuspecting visitors alighting that bus. 'the Calgary Chamber of Commerce should be ashamed how the city is being shown by a chinese prentending not to speak English , with wrong commentarys playing. Hire a limo instead and learn about the city.
