We took the 3 hr tour around Banff today with Becky and had a great time today. She took us to two jack lake, Minawanka (sp) lake, along with a drive through tour of Banff Springs Hotel, the hoodoos, and a wonderful tour through the beautiful area of Banff. She was so knowledgeable about all the areas we went through... More

My friend and I were new in Alberta and we were looking for a place were we could enjoy the remaining days of summer. We decided to go to Banff and book the Columbia Icefields Parkway tour. The tour was very awesome. Although I'm not the type of a guy who really likes this kind of tour, Olivia, our tour... More

All the thrills of a mountainside climbing experience, harnessed and secured to the side of the mountain, yet made relatively easy with strategically placed steps or grab bars. My son and I easily made the climb (I'm 60 and only moderately fit). The views, of course, are phenomenal but there's a lot of satisfaction after the climb knowing what you've... More

My husband and I just got back from the Evening Wildlife Safari and we had a great time. Our tour guide, Olivia, went out of her way to make sure we had a good trip. First, we had a terrific view of two elk on the side of the road. On our way back to Banff, we spotted a moose... More

It's hard to know where to start. The tour did not deliver what it set itself up to. We had a very knowledgable young lady driving our bus, but she was going so fast that we didn't stand a chance of seeing any animals. In fact the only reason why we saw any was because a couple of other vehicles... More

I usually stay away from tour packages offered at hotels unless they offer access to areas otherwise off-limits to the solo traveler since I find there's nothing I can see or do on one of these tours that I cannot do myself. However, I felt compelled to do a tour with Discover Banff during our recent Banff vacation; it's easy... More

We had booked two tours with this company - Icefields and Grizzly bears. Both were full day tours. We were picked up from a local motel by a very friendly driver who immediately got the whole group talking so we didn't feel awkward. We were taken to a central spot to wait for the bus that was taking our particular... More

We have used this company two years running and have done several tours all the guides are lovely and very knowledgeable. They go above and beyond to give a tour that is informative and enjoyable. Hopefully we will get back for more next year!

We had half a day so chose this tour for its 4 hour route. Visited Lake Louise, the Fairmont, and Moraine Lake - a beautiful, pristine lake with Caribbean blue water surrounded by mountains and glaciers in the distance. Mia was our driver and she was most informative and friendly -thanks. (didn't see any wildlife though).
