Stories are what make Edmonton a special city to explore. Let Big E Tours tell you a few. Ride in comfort with “Edie”, the 24 passenger bus with big windows, comfortable chairs and air conditioning. The knowledgeable driver will give you a mix of history, current goings on and a view of the natural beauty of Edmonton and the surrounding area.
All year long, Big E Tours offers two very different looks at the city, each being 90 minutes in duration. The first is the SW – “Best of Big E” tour which encompasses two crossings of the North Saskatchewan River, Old Strathcona, University of Alberta, West Edmonton Mall, and downtown. The second daily tour is SE – “Roots and Resources” tour which gives the rider a quick overview of where Edmonton came from to what it is now in terms of economic development, along with historical neighbourhoods and amazing views of the river valley and downtown.
Now, you can step back in time with some of Alberta's pioneers, and explore one of Canada's coolest National parks in the same day with Big E Tours. Their Ukrainian Village & Elk Island National Park Tour (approximate 6 hour duration) will launch on May 24, 2017, with a convenient pick-up location in Churchill Square.
