It seems to me it was a well thought out summary of the economic history of Edmonton. I found out that there is much more going on here both commercially and industrially than I thought. The guide, driving and views were excellent. Thank You.

We really enjoyed Gary's depth of local, historical knowledge and overall Canadian friendliness. He was open to any questions along the way and the tour timing was exactly as advertised. Thanks.

The tour guide was nice and energetic. He really got us into a broad area in and around the city. We learned so much about Edmonton!
