  • Although tour guide was very friendly, I would not recommend this tour if you actually want to see some wildlife. Seeing wildlife is never a guarantee, however when you are told 5 minutes into the trip that you have more luck winning lotto than seeing a bear and there is no wolves in Banff because they had to shoot them last year did not leave high expectations. We then drove over 45 minutes to arrive at this open field to only meet another tour guide who had a table with elk horns and skins and gave us although informative talk about the wild life you would normally see here but they don't expect today. We then drove back the 45 minutes into town and drove up to a look out over Banff must say beautiful view but then again not expected to see wildlife here today As previous mentioned, tour guide was very informative and spoke with great knowledge of the wild life however, it was very clear to everyone on board that even he, did not expect to see any wildlife from the beginning of tour and basically just took us to places to fill in the the time. Believe tour should have been promoted as a wild life conservation tour, rather than a safari especially at this time of the year, when the company knows sightings will probably not occur. May I add, won lotto the next day seeing a black bear along the road way.

  • This Evening Wildlife Safari far exceeded expectations! Our guide was super-knowledgeable, well-spoken and knew just where the best viewing spots were. We had several opportunities to get out to observe some of the wilderness and at one point, were giving a talk from two naturalists! I did report to Viator that the tour was TWO hours, not one hour, so even more worth the money! Great bus too - large viewing windows! Highly recommend!

  • This was a great adventure! Aaron was fabulous-- very knowledgeable and funny and warm. He took us to all the great animal spotting locations and taught us so much about conservation. We loved it!

  • An enjoyable experience - convenient pickup and drop off once we had located the Sundance Mall where the tour company is situated. The tour guide was informative and gave us lots of information about the area as well as wildlife. It was the beginning of the mating season and we saw two rutting Elks which he said was a very rare experience and we also saw some white tailed deer - no bears though but the little talk at the end of the tour when we view the bear skin was quite amusing.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Fun way to spend a few hours. I like taking tours like this when I first arrive to get some orientation to the area and to take it easy. The tour was fun. We drive around in a bus seeing the area. We did see some wildlife an elk skittish and running a bit from what the guides thought might be a wolf nearby. It was very skittish and did go to the water to try and move away.

    Don't go thinking you will see TONS of wildlife. Wildlife can be a hit or miss. I actually saw more wildlife on y last day leaving Banff on an early Sunday morning. But I would still recommend the tour.

  • Great tour and guide but animals were on vacation but we really didn't expect to see many...nice evening out.

  • The guide/driver was energetic, knowledgable and skilled - all essentials for an evening activity after a hard day of sightseeing. We saw elk, a coyote and sheep. The highlight was a big bull elk walking along the road towards the bus!

    Don't go on this tour if you expect to see bears as the publicity shot would indicate. Also, we were not allowed out of the bus except at specific scenes points 2.

    A worthwhile experience as I wouldn't have seen these animals or gone to these locations if not on the tour.

  • Just wished that we would seen more animals! Ronnie was very informative

  • Yesterday went on the wild life tour ,our guide was Norm ,he was very informative of all the possible wild life we might come across during our tour with him.
    Unfortunately Mother Nature had other ideas. ! We did see Elk and Mule deer plus two red squirrel's, no bears this time.
    This is my second time coming on this tour, we saw a black bear the last time and Elk. ,went on this same tour last year and it was great.!
    I truly would recamend this as it's not a big buss the guides are fun and still lots to see even if the animals don't wish to show face.
