A perfect afternoon. Our driver was very friendly and his stories entertained us. The venue added nice touches like marshmallows to roast on the fire and hot chocolate inside to warm up. Highly recommend.

This was part of a 70th birthday gift for my mom. We were looking for something involving the mountains but not strenuous. She absolutely loved it and so did my siblings and I. (All over 30) The guide was great and the view was breathtaking. We learned so much about the wildlife and of course the horses were beautiful. Overall an amazing experience. It was chilly but we were very bundled up and the blankets added extra warmth.

Very knowledge tour guide and driver. We learned a lot of history of the national park and its wild life. Recommend to people who may enjoy learning the history and local wildlife. Not highly recommend for children the ride is semi-fun, as it went through a small area in circle. Good picture opp with the sleigh before and after the tour.

We were so fortunate to have the sleigh ride because there had been a big fall of snow that night to make it possible. we had the private sleigh ride for 2 Kate was our driver and Bart was the engine both were fantastic, Kate was knowledgeable if we asked a question otherwise respected our personal space. beautiful backdrop of the mountains and historical buildings on the property, just a wonderful experience offered by real genuine people. On our deal you get choccies and champers, it was cold enough we probably would have preferred mulled wine hahahah!! Thanks for the experience folks
