"Toni did an outstanding job taking care of us, we want to extend our gratitude since she had to help us navigate around many hiccups due to the new restrictions and more Covid cases. Her warmth and positive proactive approach made a world of difference to our experience! Please let the staff know that the food was amazing and the front desk staff was world-class!! We look forward to many more retreats at your property!"
"I wanted to drop you a quick note of “thanks” for the efforts that Megan put into helping us make our Summit weekend in Banff such a success. From day one, she was responsive, worked to understand our needs, and her and the entire team absolutely delivered an exceptional experience. I work in a service industry where we always strive to go above and beyond, and Megan made this happen, with her team, for your company, for our company. Thank you."
"The party was great — everyone really enjoyed the food and the staff were great to deal with — very friendly, professional and accommodating. Thanks for helping to put this together Pat, we will certainly keep this in mind for next year."

We had a corporate conference there, with two sit down lunches during our meetings and one private dining room dinner. The food and service were exceptional in all cases."
"I want to thank you for your planning and support to make such a successful program. There was nothing but positive feedback and happy satisfied women. The organizers gave us high praise for an outstanding program. The trips to Banff and Lake Louise couldn't have been better planned. Both bus lunches and gondola ride with restaurant were delicious and right on time. The boat cruise was fantastic!"

"I recently had a small wedding in Banff, and in lieu of a full reception, my partner and I decided to have our (14) guests ride up the Banff Gondola and have dinner at Sky Bistro. From start to finish – the whole experience was amazing. Alisha was responsive and helpful in the planning process, the meal selection for the group was straightforward, and the team happily accommodated a couple of severe gluten allergies with no issues. Not only that, but the food was AMAZING and far exceeded my expectations. We are so glad that we chose to have our wedding celebration here, everything was perfect."
"Thanks so much for the hard work that you and your team put into this event. From my point of view, everything was fantastic! You were wonderful to work with—flexible, attentive to detail (even the ones I missed!), and very responsive whenever I had a question. Your staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you. I will not hesitate to recommend PURSUIT to anyone looking for a fantastic event in the Canadian Rockies!"
"It was so very obvious how hard you worked to put together this event for us. The hotels were beautiful, the excursions were absolutely wonderful, views were breathtaking. You are a top notch company and I certainly wish you were prominent in other places for future trips! I would absolutely recommend you and your staff to other groups."
"I just wanted to extend our thanks for coordinating this year’s ski trip. A lot of fun was had by all, and maybe in some cases too much fun!! We look forward to next year."
"We had a small wedding of 18 people and decided to have our dinner at the Wilderness Kitchen after have our ceremony at the Maligne Lake overlook. We worked with Trina to arrange everything and she was super helpful and accommodating throughout the process. She made it extremely easy for us to arrange our wedding during Covid which is already stressful enough! The venue was perfect for our small intimate wedding as well. I highly recommend the Wilderness Kitchen to everyone looking for a fun delicious meal, in a super beautiful setting."
"On behalf of WorldSkills Calgary, I wish to thank and congratulate you and your team for doing an outstanding job in providing transportation services to our many guests from around the world. Despite constantly changing circumstances that impacted your carefully planned schedules your team responded cheerfully and effectively. This ability to react is a credit to your people and we were totally impressed and grateful."
“Our wedding at the Banff Gondola was truly magical. Megan, the team at Pursuit and the Sky Bistro staff helped create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us, as well as our guests. With stunning mountain views in every direction, amazing food and a warm venue space, our wedding day was everything and more that I could have dreamt it to be.
"Getting married at the Banff Gondola will truly elevate the wedding experience and create a magical day for not only the bride and groom, but for all guests. The chefs and team at Sky Bistro deliver nothing short of perfection with their innovative cuisine and experiencing wedding vows on top of the world with mountains everywhere the eye can see can only be described as magical.”
“Everything was great! You were a dream to work with leading up to the event and our group had nothing but great things to say about the quality of your vehicles and drivers. Sky Bistro turned out to be the perfect end to the week and has definitely stayed top of mind for our attendees as they reminisced about their week.”
“In short … you folks were AWESOME!! We have heard nothing but compliments about the gondola trip, the venue, the food and the great hospitality Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit provided. It was a pleasure working with you on the planning and actual day of the event. The entire team at Pursuit were very helpful and true professionals. It was a great event and a wonderful way to kick-off our campaign launch.”
