TESTIMONIALS - few of many

Very interesting day trip

We visited the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, the Badlands, Drumheller, the Hoodoos, and other places of interest in the area. Peter was an excellent guide, Very friendly, helpful, and informative with many interesting stories of the area. Lots of opportunities for photographs. The museum was very interesting, with one of the largest dinosaur fossil collections in the world. Walking shoes a must, the terrain was quite rough in places. Ended with a beer in the 'Last Chance Saloon' which was very welcome.

Great Tour

We had the pleasure of touring the Badlands and visiting the Royal Tyrrell Museum with Petar. We were a group of 6 adults and we all enjoyed our tour.
Booking online was easy and straight forward. Pick up and drop off was very efficient. As a guide, Petar was knowledgeable and had a great approach.
The tour driving component was very comfortable and not at all boring as Petar provided ongoing commentary - we all learned so much. The group size is limited which is wonderful - 9 in total. The Royal Tyrrell Museum is amazing - well worth the visit. Despite being jet-lagged (from arriving previous night) we all enjoyed the tour pace and itinerary. Petar ensured all guests have looked after. Thank you, Petar.

AMAZING Drumheller Badlands Tour

I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to do a small group tour! Peter has been very communicative with me through email with regards to booking and reservation. Just from the email itself, I could tell he is a very sincere and genuine person! On the day of the tour, Petar took one step ahead to go up to the guests, including me who are waiting for the pick-up. Knowing that I am a Deaf person (but I am wearing hearing aid), Petar understands the needs to speak slowly as well as inform the other guests that there is a Deaf passenger on this tour. Petar is very informative and knowledgeable at each place that we went to! On the whole, Petar is a very friendly and approachable person who never fails to lighten up the mood of the tour. And transportation is comfortable and spacious! It has a high and large window which allows us to look out easily and clearly. They have plenty of other tours and if I have a chance to be in Calgary again, I would go for another tour whichever they have, to see other beautiful parts of Alberta!
