I went on the Drumheller Badlands one day tour with Peter today. It was great! I found Hammerhead Tours through Tripadvisor because I was looking for a way to get my friend and I to the Royal Tyrell Museum. After I sent in my booking request on their website, Vivian replied to me very quickly. She told me that it... More

We were picked up on time from Calgary Tower and taken on a wonderful full day tour stopping at places like Two Jack Lake,Banff National Park and Lake Louise.

We did a day tour out to several spots and I can't tell you how great it was. They take only a small group-van and it is owned and operated by a married couple who live there so they know all the info and the special things you'd want to know. So kind and knowledgeable. They don't do a large... More

Hammerhead Tours let us choose our itinerary and accomodation so we could pick the places of interest for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids. We were able to travel at our own pace and spent longer at the spots that were of most interest. We had the most amazing experience visiting Jasper, Banff and Drumheller Badlands with Petar....

If you are thinking about booking a tour with Hammerhead - DO IT! I had two amazing trips with Hammerhead (run by Petar), one to Lake Louise & Banff, the other to Drumheller and the Badlands. Both tours comprise numerous very interesting stops in locations that will take your breath away, and Petar is a very knowledgeable guide who entertains... More

Thank you to Peter for such knowledgeable trips to Lake Louise and Drumheller Badlands. He is very informative and we enjoyed the tours so much. Such fantastic and amazing scenery we'll never forget - absolutely outstanding. Would recommend Hammerhead Tours to anybody, for the comfort, attention to detail and interest.

11 of us had a blast with Petar's kind and knowledgeable guide. We saw amazing sights including 2 grizzly bears beside the roads, one with 2 cubs. Several elk/deer. First time we went to Lake Louise it was cloudy so Petar took us back next morning and it was glorious! Lake Morraine was out of this world. Thank you Petar... More

Two days before we were meant to go on our tour Vivian emailed saying the other people booked in for that day cancelled, so they had to cancel our tour.

Petar O, Manager at Hammerhead Scenic Tours, responded to this review

Our priority is ensuring every guest, and potential guest experiences the best Alberta has to offer. Unfortunately, due to specific tour criteria, sometimes we’re forced to make the disheartening decision of cancelling a tour. When that happens, we’ll go the extra step to ensure every guest gets to experience Alberta, even if it means passing business to our ‘competitors’. Besides,... More
