This “review” is only to say that their TripAdvisor info doesn’t say when the organization closes (or reopens) for the season. So when my partner and I were looking for something super fun to do during our short stay in Calgary naturally we wanted to...More

Pete was a fun and knowledgeable tourguide that showed us alot of what can be seen in Calgary's downtown river valley in a relatively short period of time, longer than 90 min would be far too long.

Did the 60 min segway tour with Peter. Spent so long on rules and training (although he was patient and kind), we did very little touring. Thought we would get more of a commentary and info about what we were seeing. Expensive, would not recommend.More
