Peter, our tour guide, gave my cousin and I a detailed itinerary of the tour months in advance - we were very well informed about everything at all times.
From start to finish we felt safe and catered for in the minibus and Petar made every effort to meet everyone's needs. He was extremely friendly, and everyone could tell how much he loved his job.
An excellent day filled with sights I will never forget, truly breathtaking!
I would recommend it to everyone!

Hi, I used this firm for two scenic tours with my parents in late January 2018
We were taken on the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump tour.
This was a fantastic trip and very interesting.
Also, we went on the Banff and Lake Louise tour with its stunning scenery and town. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Our driver Petar was very knowledgeable and a very nice polite man.
I highly recommend these tours and hiring this firm (Petar) for your guide.
The car is very comfortable and clean. Their also plenty of extra things to see in these tours expertly guided by Petar.
Thank you Hammerhead tours and Petar for these amazing trips

Impressive Tour to Head-Smashed-In
We did the Full-day tour with Peter to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, and it was excellent. The scenery on the Cowboy Trail and rolling hills trough Foothills of Rocky Mountains was just amazing. Beautifull Cowboy Country.
Peter is very easy going, extremely knowledgeable, and has a wonderful way of explaining things. He makes us so comfortable, and by the end of the tour, it seemed like we know each other for a long time.
The tour vehicle was clean (I love when windows are clean), comfortable, and spacious dodge grand caravan that we shared with the other three fellow tourists.
Without reservation, we highly recommend this tour.
