We booked a tour around the Jasper trails with Elissa. We weren’t sure what to expect but Elissa took care of everything. We took our own bikes so got set off promptly North out of Jasper along the Athabasca River along bridle ways and mixed use trails, we then returned to loop around Beauvert lake and back in to Jasper. The trails were XC focused with relatively little climbing but enough tech bits to keep things interesting. We were a mixed ability group and everyone came away with a big smile on their face. Elissa was a great guide and gave us a few tips for our onward journey to Vancouver Island via Whistler. I would highly recommend to anyone as the scenery spectacular and the ride is as difficult as you want to make it.

White Water Rafting on the Sunwapta River was amazing! The water was freezing, but that did not prevent us from having such a fun time. Brody, our Maligne Adventures raft guide, did an incredible job instructing us on how to steer through the rapids and how to avoid the many obstacles in the water. Rafts can normally hold 6 people plus a guide. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, our group of 4 was in our own raft with our guide which was perfect for us. We chose to not take the bus transfer from the downtown Jasper meeting point to avoid having to wear masks for the 45 minute per direction bus ride. We followed the bus in our own car. Everyone at Maligne Adventures, from Daniella in the reservations office to the rafting guides were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We highly recommend this tour. We would most certainly do it again.

The price may seem a lot but the ride and the views it offers are well worth it!!! We were not disappointed at all!!!! The hike up to the summit was not as bad as I though. For someone with very bad asthma, it was not a bad hike.

We visited Alexandria with Mohammed and had an excellent experience. He was a very informative guide, very personable and answered all questions well ( we were a very inquisitive group). In fact, if he didn't know the answer off hand, he researched it and got us an answer in no time. The restaurant he took us to for lunch was FANTASTIC! The restaurant overlooked the Mediterranean and served fresh fish and bread baked right there.

I had a terrible experience, So i booked this tour for today May 7th 2021. received booking confirmation and got the ticket along with pick up point and tour details. I took unpaid off from my work and uber to reach the pick up location in Calgar NE(it was a hotel). pick up time was 7:30 AM and i was there at 7:15 AM. I waited there till 8 AM and there was no sign of the tour bus, hotel management knew nothing about the tour. I called Westar Travel LTD twice and they never picked up my calls. I came back at my place and Contact Trip advisor/Viator they helped me to get my refund for the tour. Viator is no doubt very friendly and professional in customer care. I requested compensation for my uber rides but it was declined by the tour company(Westar Travel LTD.) even if the tour was canceled due to any reason Westar Travel should have sent me a communication about it instead they did not received my calls. so basically i lost my full day, I lost one day income, uber rides and now i have nothing to do today. thanks to TripAdvisor/Viator I atleast got my tour payment back.
