We went on this evening safari as we really wanted to see the animals, free in the wild. The pick up was fine, but we were late setting off due to some late guests at the terminus. We went to a few places and only duceeded in seeing a mallard, which we have plenty of in the UK, then eventually... More

This would have to be one of the worst tours we have been on....you could do it yourself. The bus driver/tour guide ...Jeff..was very vague with instructions. We got to the gondola and he said we had about an hour,did not give a specific time to return to coach so people arrived back at all different times, we along with... More

I did the Lake Louise bus tour on 21 April 2015 with Discover Banff Tours. The bus travelled on the scenic highway and one stop was made at a lookout and another at a historical intern camp. The road to Lake Moraine was closed so more time was spent at Chateau Lake Louise resort. This allowed time to walk about... More

We had a fantastic journey this morning and afternoon. Alan our tour guide was fabulously funny and extremely knowledgeable about the area we toured. Becky our 2nd guide was very welcoming and diligent at her profession. Banff is a must see place. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

I did the Evening Wildlife Safari with Jordan and it was AMAZING we saw so many different animals and the guide was fun and upbeat. It was a great experience and I would recommend Discover Banff Tours to anyone traveling to the Banff area.

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the canyon. We hiked in with the group in the light of early evening and reached... More

We did the Johnson Canyon Night Walk during our vacation in Banff. The service provided by guides Jordan(a fellow Barrie resident) and the guide from Lithuania(sorry forget her name) was top notch. Pick up from our hotel was right on schedule. Jordan did a great job having everyone tell a little about themselves to help break the ice. The drive... More
