We had a free day in Calgary at the start of a Rocky Mountaineer trip. The Calgary City Tour provided a good way to see the city sights. This was billed as a bus tour, but it was actually a small van, just perfect for the 4 of our family group and a driver. There was, in fact a great selection of stops providing many different perspectives of
Calgary. It is hard to say which was our favorite. We could never have gotten to all of these places on our own. One slight negative was needing to walk a bit to get from our central hotel to the remote start of the tour. On the plus side, our driver rearranged things so that our last stop was the tower, which was right by our hotel. Our one wish was that the driver would have known more about local history. Fortunately, we have begun to get some of this from Rocky Mountaineer.
