Evening Wildlife Safari a must

Enya was very knowledgable. We did not expect to see much wildlife in Banff, as there are too many people there. We did see an elk, ducks, geese, big horn sheep, and a mule deer... read more

We had a great experience with this tour. It is approx. 10 hours long, lots of stops to take pictures. We saw so many mountains and beautiful scenery. The ice glacier was beautiful. The picnic in the park was great. The bus was comfy. I would do it again. Loved it! Thanks to Alain our tour guide.

Our group of 21 adults recently visit various areas in Banff and Jasper. We had a such a memorable, fun time. We initially booked via Brewsters company without knowing that they subcontract to Discover tour. Anyway, every place we visit has its own unique charm and beauty. We all love it. We had Hugh as our driver and tour guide.... More

Walked plain of five glaciers with Anic. Excellent day out a highlight of our holiday. Anic made it fun and her knowledge of the area was extensive. Can highly recommend this day out.

We visited Banff for 4 days and we chose Discovery tours for most of our travel. 1. 10 hour round trip to Columbia Ice fields went perfectly as planned and our host was very good and efficient. Even care was taken about the food and we got exactly what we have ordered 2. Trip to lake Louise and lake Morainne... More

I took the Columbia Icefields Parkway tour around 7 years ago while travelling with a friend around the area. The tour was great and I remember the landscape being snowy. I returned to Canada for my honeymoon and my husband and I decided to go together given that I always told him it was such a great tour. But this... More

we chose to do 3 tours with this company and found them to be perfect. Their tour guides were professional, courteous and generally wanted us to get everything we could from the tours. They were always punctual and friendly. The booking staff were very easy to deal with especially Michele who took my booking from Australia for a custom tour... More

We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor before travelling to Banff, but decided to "give it a go" even though a number of the reviews were not too encouraging. It does pay to take note of one's fellow travellers on Trip Advisor, unless of course it is the odd one who is never going to be satisfied whatever is... More

Today we took the Columbia Icefields Parkway Tour in Banff. It is so much more than just the majesty of glaciers! We visited many beautiful places of interest along the way to the Icefields. The trip was extraordinary because of the tour guide named Hugh. He shared historical stories all along our trip. We learned about the special pioneering spirit... More
