excursion bookings

Not long now until my trip.

Currently have 2 provisional bookings with a local tour company to Banff and Drumhellier. Should I not hear from them because the trip is not viable would I be able to book them on arrival in Clagary. If so where would be the best place to look for an agent.

I am in Calgary for a week.

I'm wondering why your tour is only provisional? Did you try looking at http://www.explorerockies.com/

Can you confirm with the company if they intend to conduct their tour?

The reason why it is provisonal is that the company at the time of booking could not confirm it. The tour is only viable when there are 4 people on it and at the time I was the first person to book on the dates requested.

What I do need to know is should the worst case scenario happen and the tour is cancelled at the last minute would I be able to book somethign when i arrive in Calgary. If so where is the best place to go.

There are tour operators who have agents/desks on the arrivals level at Calgary Airport. I'm not sure which companies; but I will be at the airport later this week and can check to see who has representatives on site.

In the meantime, there is a list of bus tour operators on yyc.com under Traveller Info - Ground Transportation.

I was at the airport on Thurs. evening - both Brewster and Sun Dog had representatives manning a desk in the Ground Transportation section on the arrivals level. ~Natasha
