We purchased Brewster's package of Banff Gondola tickets plus hotel pickup and drop off. Everything went well, because we had a driver who used common sense. We waited in line for 45 minutes at the top and finally got permission to jump the line for the downward gondola, because the manager recognized the Brewster name and pickup system. We were... More

My granddaughter and I rode with Brewster Bus tours Through Banff NP, Jasper NP, and Yolo NP. Amazing trip. My first time on a glacier. Saw so many amazing lakes and waterfalls.

I have used the Brewster Airport bus for years and had no problems on the coaches they have used. However, the company purchased new buses for the airport run and on February 3rd I was freezing by the time we got to Banff from the Calgary airport. I had on a shirt, sweater and down jacket as well as boots,... More

This is an excellent way to get from the Calgary airport to Banff Alberta. Price per couple was less than all the expenses that would be incurred for a rental. The busses are beautiful, clean and most important they have a washroom. The drivers were courteous and most of all experienced. We drove from Calgary to Banff at Christmas this... More
