Two days riding with overnight stay in Sundance Lodge - absolutely beautiful!!! The scenery is well worth the pain, especially for beginners level riders :-) Beautiful horses... Our guide, Kate was great in handling everything and the lodge was wonderful for rest after a full riding day...and the cooks were pampering us! even at the camp fire with s'mores....

This was by far the most ridiculous company I have ever dealt with! I booked and paid and then waited outside my hotel ten minutes early as asked. When the bus was fifteen minutes late I called the company I had booked through who said they were running late. Fair enough, I waited for another half hour and called again.... More

Hiking with our diverse group of people and fun knowledgeable guides was a great experience! I would go again! Megs was a very enthusiastic and fun guide.

We actually took two tours with Discover, the first one being the Evening Wildlife Safari, and it was wonderful! Not only did we get to see a grizzly up close and personal, but we also were well educated by our guide, Hugh, who's obviously very enthusiastic about what he does. And the time of day was incredibly beautiful, so I... More

I travelled by myself to Banff for 6 days in July and wanted to join some organised hikes. I initially booked 4 days of different signature hikes but unfortunately three of them didn't go ahead due to lack of numbers. I did however do one of the signature hikes to Larch Valley, the trip to the Columbia Icefields and a... More

My wife and I just got back from Banff Canada. What a beautiful place! We used Discover Banff Tours for two different tours (a "discover banff 1/2 day sight seeing tour) and a full day tour that took us to a beautiful waterfall, Lake Louise and the Kicking Horse resort where we got to see the Grizzly Bear refuge and...

I visited Banff alone in April. Because I didn't want to be bothered with a car, and based on the rapturous reviews here, I did five of their day tours in three days. I had booked four before arriving and added the fifth after my own heavenly experiences. Seriously, these positive reviews did not exaggerate. Discover Banff and its Wildlife:... More

We used Discover Banff tours for the Lake Louise/Moraine Lake tours, a horseback tour, and the evening wildlife tour. Would have done the glacier tour but I ended up getting sick unfortunately. Their guides were all exceptionally informative, with groups that were small enough that it felt more intimate than a big tour bus. It's definitely the way to go.

Strongly recommend this tour, went for this at the end of June 2014 with family and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide Mags was very knowledgeable and friendly and told interesting historical and geographical details about almost every mountain and glacier on the way. She seemed to know all the stories about the history of the colonisation of the Rockies, and... More

Fantastic organization. Terrific prices, helpful staff, great tours. We enjoyed the horseback trail ride, the wildlife discovery tour and tomorrow the gondola. Tours were well organized and enjoyable. Best part? Valerie our booking agent. We literally walked into the offices we saw in downtown Banff and 15 minutes later we were all set. She was helpful and really knowledgeable. Great... More
