My Auntie and I went on a day trip with Petra on the Hammerhead scenic tour. From start to finish the service was both professional and personal.
Petra was very knowledgable and made us feel very comfortable and welcome.
The day was extremely enjoyable and Petra added lots of personal touches making the day our own.
The views and knowledge he showed us were equally amazing for myself, who lives in the UK, and my Auntie who has lived in Calgary for many years.
We visited Franks slide as well as the Head smashed in buffalo jump. Petra gave us plenty of opportunity to ask questions, take in the scenery and even took some great photos.
I highly recommend this tour for locals and tourists in any age group. You will not be disappointed and will gain some great memories that will last a lifetime!

An awesome day with Petar travelling to the Drumheller Badlands. Informative and good company. Well worth the time to see the amazing country side and Tyrell Museum. The museum is awesome and a must see, our teenagers loved it.

My wife and myself did three private tours with Peter. We firstly did a half day Calgary City tour and then two day tours to Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump and the Drumheller Badlands tour. Peter gave us a fantastic experience. He could not have been more helpful and accommodating. He was always willing to stop and take photos. He was also very pleasant company to be with and gave us great insights into Alberta and Canada. We were delighted with our decision to use Peter and Hammerhead Tours during our time in the Calgary area of Alberta, Thank you Peter. Michael and Marie (Ireland)

Our day trip with Petar was extremely enjoyable and informative. The drive was interesting with sights to stop and see along the way. The Royal Tyrrell Museum was quite amazing with so many fantastic fossils and dinosaur bones. The 11 historic bridges in 4 miles spanning the Rosebud River was an enjoyable drive, although sad to see the township of Wayne disappearing. Finished the day with a visit to the Hoodoos which were spectacular in the afternoon light. Altogether a great day!!

Thanks to the great tour guide Petar, we really enjoyed exploring Drumheller. He took us many wonderful scenery spots and took our photos as well. Visiting The Royal Tyrrell Museum was on my bucket list. So one of my dreams came true. It was so moving to see the Borealopelta. This tour is genuinely one of my treasures in my life. Thank you for your cheerful jokes and nice conversation during this whole tour. We cherish to be happy, healthy, wealthy and safe.

This full day tour with Petar as our driver and guide surpassed our expectations, as we drove south from Calgary along the very scenic Hwy #22 through the foothills of the Rockies, stopping along the way to see and experience the history of the area. Onto Chain Lakes Provincial Park where we were thrilled to see a female moose with her two calves. More sites and photo opportunities before arriving at the not to be missed UNESCO World Heritage Site Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Interpretive Centre. Returning to Calgary via Hwy #2 provided us with real appreciation of the vastness of the prairies with the ever present Rockies in the distance. Petar's thoughtfulness and generosity of time and information made this tour the highlight of our time in Canada.

We had an amazing day at Banff and Lake Louise with Petar. He is very knowledgeable about the area so you'd never get bored on the way. He's so flexible that we could see everything we want. Also he gave us some space so we could enjoy ourselves too!
I had been in Canada for 10 days and the day with petar was definitely the one i'll never forget, it was a lovely trip like
childhood family trip. Thank you very very much Petar!

I booked the Drumheller Badlands tour, with Royal Tyrrell Museum as main attraction (Dinosaurs of course). Little did I know that that locations we would see in addition to the museum would be so mesmerizing. The landscape of Alberta Prairies, Canyons, rugged valleys, rivers and Badlands is in stark contrast to the lush green hills of Banff or Jasper, and there in lies another beauty of nature that absolutely must be seen by everyone visiting Alberta.

This was the last tour of our month long vacation in Canada and we loved every bit of it. The long drive from our hotel in Calgary downtown through the Prairies (reminded me of Sting's song 'Fields of Gold') to the Canyons, the elevated view points of the valley and canyons, the rolling fields, the museum, the hoodoos, the eleven bridges and its stories, it was a day very well spent and will fondly remember every time we look back at the hundreds of photos of the tour.

And no one really does this tour better than Petar Opacak of the Calgary Tour Company-Hammerhead Scenic Tours. He may have done this tour hundreds of times but we could sense his enthusiasm and joy of story/ fact telling and photography as we went from one spot to another. He was indeed very kind and readily stopped at many places to let us take photographs.

Banff Lake Louise tour late May before the big rush. We were touring with friends from Scotland and wanted them to see the best of the Rockies. The views were amazing. Enjoyed our trip immensely especially being driven around, rather then being the driver. Our host/driver Petar was very hospitable, knowledgeable and friendly. Picked up and return from hotel, many pit stops to take pictures of scenery and wildlife. One of the passengers could not walk a great distance without assistance and Petar found a parking spot that was close to the location we were going.
Vehicle was comfortable and clean.
I highly recommend Hammerhead Scenic Tours and especially Lake Louise/Banff tour
