Driver drove so fast we didn't have a chance to see any wildlife he was not very knowledgeable and overall the tour was rubbish and a waste of money and time. We stood more chance of seeing wildlife on our own

The only chance we had of seeing anything was if the bus ran it over. Driver was somewhat distant and was travelling so fast we had no chance of spotting anything. The wildlife presentation in a field was a duplication of what the driver had told us - 15 minutes wasted. Do the tour yourself its easy.

We decided to take a tour that would give us an opportunity to view wildlife around Banff with experts who knew their craft. It was so bad, we could only laugh. The "wildlife tour" was a series of stops at historical buildings around Banff with lots of pictures circulated around the bus. We thought the bus was taking us to... More

We did the lake louise and lake moraine tour at a total cost of $145 for 2 of us. The tour is meant to be 4.5 hours long and should entail 45 mins driving through bow valley parkway, 30 mins at lake louise, 30 min at lake moraine and 5 mins Castle Mountain. We were due to be picked up... More

Offer lots of Small Group Tours. Great Guides with in depth local knowledge, friendly & helpful. Both of our Guides (Alan & Jordan) really knew how to tell a story & kept us entertained. Enthusiastic about their work, passionate about cultural history & wildlife. Went out of their way to let us see wildlife & kept a respectful distance from... More

Hi Bev P Thanks for the great review and the excellent advice on the difference between the Lake Louise & Moraine Lake tour versus the full day Explore Lake Louise tour. I couldn't have explained the difference better myself! Glad you enjoyed your Evening Wildlife Safari too, and that we were able to help you build some fantastic memories of... More

Our tour guide picked us up in front of the hotel which was very convenient. However, the rest of the tour was pretty much a disaster: We drove around, our tour guide told us tons of stuff which was hardly understandable as she spoke really fast and the microphone was bad and the content wasn't that exciting either. We stopped... More

We are fortunate to have Discover Banff take care of our valued guests with all of our private touring in the Rockies. Our mutual clients had Nicole provide a wonderful and memorable sightseeing day on June 9th, 2015 We had another tour scheduled for our guests with Discover Banff and the clients requested to have Nicole look after them again....

Excellent tour well worth braving the cold and wet weather to see a bear amongst other animals. Tour guide was the best (Jordan). Give him a pay rise please. Special shout out to his mother, apparently your the best _ and yes he has a "real job" now.

Despite the inclement weather, long hours and far drive (typical Canadian ordeals) our tour guide Jordon made this a trip to remember. His great humour, anecdotes, trivia and personable conversation helped make all of it worth every penny and more. The only complaint: he forgot to tell us who was the third person on the Palliser Expedition ( that was... More
