    Tour guide was sweet but inexperienced. Didn’t really see any animals. This tour money is better spent on other tours for sightseeing of the Rockies

    Jeff was our host!! What a great guy! Very knowledgeable, courteous and very accommodating taking photos and helping all the guests on board. We even got to see a black bear !! Fantastic tour

    What an informative tour. Hugh was fantastic. We stopped and viewed wildlife and he gave us great history about the park. I liked that this tour was smaller than the bigger buses we were on earlier in the week. He made sure he knew our names and answered everyone’s questions. I would recommend this tour.

    Best experience with my wife. We learned so much about banff. Jeff was a great tour guide, super funny and super welcoming. Cant wait to come back and be apart of another one of his tours!

    A great tour! We saw so much beautiful scenery and some of the smaller animals. Due to the time of year some animals were still hibernating but was still a very enjoyable experience. Our guide, Heidi, was lovely, funny and so knowledgable. There wasn’t a question she couldn’t answer. Would highly recommend using this company as we did a few of their tours and all were brilliant!

    I would highly recommend this tour! Our guide Rob was super knowledgeable, friendly and shared lots of interesting facts about Banff and the geography of the area. We saw Elk and a Cayote! We stopped at lots of great scenic viewpoints and the hot chocolate break taken whilst overlooking Banff was lovely!

    Absolument à faire lors de votre visite à Banff, de préférence au début de votre séjour.. Visite des points a ne pas manquer… vue des plus beau spots pour les photos. En plus une explication détaillée de l’histoire de Banff, de ses rochers.. vraiment Neil nous a transmis sa passion pour tous les attraits de Banffs.. un peu triste de ne pas avoir vu d’animaux. Mais le fait qu’il nous a informé de leurs habitudes et de leur préférences, on en a vu lors de nos autres déplacements.

    Very interesting and enjoyable tour. Alysa was knowledgeable, informative, friendly, welcomed questions, and was a great driver on snowy roads. Highly recommended!

    Had a great tour with Alyssa who was very knowledgeable about the wildlife in Banff. We were able to see some deer and Alyssa took us to an extra spot for some amazing views of downtown Banff where we happened to find some Bighorn Sheep. She was super helpful at providing everyone on the tour with great spots to eat in both Banff and even in Canmore, where I was staying. You’ll have a great time on the tour!
