  • Great scenery. We went early in hopes to see grizzly bears but did not see any. We paid and extra 4 for a breakfast buffet and another 5 for a guided tour at the top of the mountain.

  • Not as spectacular as other gondola rides.

  • Wow awesome views, just amazing and still some snow on the mountains. The day we had booked they had a power outage and the gondola was closed but they quite happily allowed us to go back the next day. Lake Louise is just stunning the photo's don't really do it justice

  • So so, not that much to see. Best use your money somewhere else. But if you got nothing to do, go ahead.

  • This tour was fantastic, the views were breathtaking.
    Highly recommend doing lunch at the Glacier Lodge there.

  • It was wonderful to get a different aspect of Lake Louise from a distance.
    Just missed seeing some bears which was disappointing.

  • Was a nice ride up with great views and great views at the top. We went early so no crowds and was a pleasant trip.

  • It was nice,although I was expecting more from the experience. Perhaps it was related to the timing of our experience after 5pm?

  • excellent trip, wide view of area

  • Beautiful day, beautiful scenery, not crowded.
