When i visited here we had the opportunity to be part of the guides first tour and discussion. Jordan was funny, interesting, informative and passionate about what he was talking about. Well done to the lad, who made everyone feel special, important and overall included. Worth the tip. Well done! good luck for the rest of the seasons

Discover Banff and it's Wildlife was an ideal tour for us to do especially since we did not have our own vehicle. Becky gave us a great introduction to the history of Banff, the National Park and its wildlife. Although they can't guarantee you see any wildlife we were lucky enough to see mule deer, elk (including a stag) and... More

Great Tour, friendly guides and just so much fun. The special treats (hot cocoa and maple Taffy) were the icing on the cake. My husband and I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it

The tour is an great opportunity to learn about Banff and Lake Louise. If you are just visiting the towns for a short stay or living in the area for a season it is well worth doing in order to learn about the towns and how they have been shaped by history and many different events. The tour guide Hugh... More

I did the Columbia Icefields Parkway tour on 28 May 2014. I only had a few days in Banff, and I was keen to do as much as I could in a short period of time without having to hire a car. So I booked the tour, which is a bus trip along the main road (called the parkway) to... More

As one of the seemingly few people who didn't drive a car to Banff, my partner and I were at odds as to how best to see Banff - let alone make it up to Lake Louise in the off season! We had a chat to the guys at Discover Banff Tours who were able to roll two tours (Banff... More

It was terrible, a waste of money. We where picked up with a small bus and drove around on public roads hoping to see some wildlife. Seriously, what where they thinking. We had a much better change of seeing something driving around in our own car as there was nothing special about the route.

I set up an entire weekend around activities booked through this outfit. At last minute they cancelled all of my booked tours. Back and forth emails with them did not amount to any satisfaction on my part that they cared about ruining my weekend. In fact, almost spitefully, they convinced me to book an alternate trip, which I did, and... More

We booked this tour as it seemed to cover all our site seeing needs in one day, long trip over eight hours. Our choice was between the smaller company Banff Tours who specialised in smaller groups or the big local company Brewsters who own just about everything around this area. Having waved our friends off on the big new six... More
