A tremendously relaxing tour that was professionally and seamlessly conducted/operated by Chris. Highlights included witnessing a consortium of moose, wolves and bisons (observed from within the safe confines of a Honda Pilot), feeding trouts and driving by the Montebello Lodge. Highly recommended for anyone with a generous amount of time and a curious/adventurous mindset.

This was a fun experience and a neat way to view the city and environs. It's another way to take a look at our wonderful city along with the view from the Belvedere on Mount Royal.

Had a great experience. Definitely worth visiting in the night, gives you a great view of the city lights.

A great day out. Our tour guide Chris was amazing too. Would highly recommend.

A wonderful opportunity to see the city in another way, highly recommend it.
