good basic meal for price. Amazing views, weather worked out very well for our dinner. no gluten free options offered. I also asked about corkage fees, as I had a special occasion bottle of wine I hoped to enjoy and they didn't seem to know what that meant, and wouldn't allow it. I should have allowed myself more time to... More

We took the Gondola to the top on what appeared to be an overcast day and were not disappointed when we got to the top. The views are stunning. We had dinner at the restaurant which was ok. We bought a package online that included the gondola ride and the meal with tax and tip included for $115/couple. It was... More

This was such a beautiful ride up the mountain. The scenery of the Rocky Mountains is just breathtaking. It is very difficult to describe the awesomeness and beauty of this area. On top of the mountain is a lovely picturesque restaurant. Prices are comperable to other restaurants in the area. We had pulled pork which was very tender and tasty.... More

The Banff Gondola is a small 4-seat ride up to the top of the mountain. It is very quiet and pleasant The car is in good condition despite the constant usage. The terminal at the top of the mountain is quite a thing to see aside from the view. The Panorama Restaurant was closed (closed on September 1), but there... More

Busy, but well organised. Deals with other attractions possible, but a bit confusing and not really enough information unless you ask. (NB No option to ride up and walk down. Only walk up and ride down - a bit naughty because not many would choose to do it that way.) We were given a time to return and queue, which... More

I am terrified of heights but decided to go on the gondola and try and face my fear. Well worth it. The view was amazing. Once you are off the gondola there are wooden stair cases to walk up to get the the top of the mountain with plenty of platforms to take pictures from. It's a lot of stairs... More

A gloomy day but still a nice ride up on the gondola to the top of Sulphur mountain. Gaps in the mist and cloud revealed mountains across the valley, and the Bow river snaking along. We walked up to the old cosmic rays centre on the boardwalk across the mountain top.

I hiked up the Sulfur Mountain and took the gondola down. The hike up had some good views, do not miss the great 360 degree views at the top of the observatory. It was breathtaking! The whole experience was spoilt by the photographer. I wanted to ask a question when the photographer was doing anything and she just barked and... More

We loved this trip in the Gondola, it was a little bit windy and that made for a bit of screaming from my wife but the views you get are fantastic. When you get to the top of Sulphur mountain a wooden walk way has been laid out so you can walk to the highest point, there are a number... More
