My kids absolutely loved the experience. They loved waving to everyone down on the ground , and the smiles never stopped.
We did the two hour tour due to a time restriction for us but we will be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to be dropped off and picked up next time. We did get some rain but there were ponchos and umbrellas available.The tickets also included a free signature drink at the Rimrock Resort.
Andrew ,the man behind the idea was great. He was very friendly and made himself available to answer any questions and share information. I was also amazed at how any could drive a double decker on some of the roads and the switch backs up to Norquay but Pierre the driver did an absolute fantastic job, keeping the ride smooth.
I would highly recommend this open top double decker bus for sightseeing and for getting from one location to the next.
