Thoroughly enjoyed the Johnstone Canyon tour with Hugh. Beautiful Aqua blue ice everywhere along the trail. Very easy trail to walk for all ages. I highly recommend those who are visiting the Banff area and are interested in a tour to speak to Disover Banff. With any luck you'll get Hugh as your guide! Very friendly, funny and knowledgable guide.

Emma did a great job as our tour guide. The scenery was beautiful. We didn't see much wildlife but the hotel told us that could happen when we booked the tour.

I did the Banff discovery tour with Jordan & he was a excellent guide, showing knowledge of the area. Showed us all the highlights of Banff & it was great as otherwise would have missed this. We also did the Johnston Canyon tour with Hugho & Anik & they were also great & showed concern when I wasn't feeling well... More

The Ice Hike with Discovery Banff Tours was one of the highlights of our Christmas 2015 trip to Banff. The organization picked us up at our hotel, the guides provided interesting information along the way, told folkore stories, and made sure all participants were able to complete the hike. Highly recommend Discovery Banff Tours.
