Such a great experience! Pre-booking with Viator made it so easy once we arrived to the gondola. It was 100% worth it, and will continue to recommend the gondola, and booking through Viator to all my friends and family!

I would never use this third party business again. They charged us an extra $100. We did not realize until we showed up that Albertan's get a cheaper rate and this site never asked us this-we therfore payed an extra $100 for our family- i suggest just going to the gondola to get tickets.

The works there are very friendly and helpful . One family in a group , everyone wears mask. On the way up it's kind more scared than go down, but the views on the top of the mountain are so amazing !!
