Kept us from being bored! We started driving from Calgary airport towards Banff National Park and we timed the audio tour to start playing when we got into the mountains about an hour out, since the driving took 2 1/2 hours, but the tour is only almost 1 1/2 hours. We timed it perfectly and the tour went really well, as it described the places and history of them, as we went by. Good value, as there’s a set cost for up to 8 people that was less than $7!

Nice when timed rights. We started it up about an hour outside of Calgary, although it was a bit shorter than 1 1/2 hours.

These guides are truly excellent. Will always look out for them when travelling by car. Great value

Interesting talk - would have been a boring journey without it.

It was informative and the trivia questions were fun
