I hadn't signed up for this tour originally. I wanted to do the wildlife tour but there weren't enough people signed up so I switched to this one. I am glad I decided to try it. You wear snow boots and they give you strap on ice cleats which are amazing. We were walking on the slippery trails with no... More

I took two tours - Discover Banff & Its Wildlife and the Marble Canyon Snowshoeing. Both were excellent. The guides, Dylan on Tour 1 and Mia on Tour 2, were exceptionally friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. They really did make us feel like they really wanted us to have a great time. Based on my experiences, I'd thoroughly recommend this company.

My wife & I (both aged 61) did this tour as part of a Canadian Rockies package arranged by our Travel Agent (but you can just book it individually), and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Pickup from our Banff hotel was prompt and courteous. Snowboots and snowshoes were provided (NB best to phone the company in advance to let them know... More

We used Discover Banff Tours to plan the activities for our honeymoon. As soon as I booked our activities, Michelle from Reservations called me immediately to discuss our itinerary. She brought to our attention one tour that we booked that didn't make sense for us and easily cancelled the tour. Right away I trusted this company and the people that... More

Our tour guide was Misha and we went on the evening tour to the lower fall. It was beautiful. And very fact filling but not too much so it feels like a school trip. I'd definitely go up to the upper falls next time.

I couldn't resist taking the Wildlife tour again this year. The guide was Pam and she had a wealth of knowledge about the history of Banff but also the eco systems of the area. It didn't matter that we didn't find much wildlife. We all had the use of binoculars and the chance to examine antlers and horns. I particularly... More

Absolutely fantastic trip! Nate and Dillan were great tour guides. They were knowledgable about the history of the area and were so friendly and fun. Lots of laughs and jokes were shared with all. We had a group of six women and it didn't intimidate them! :). I would HIGHLY recommend this tour and especially with Nate and Dillan!

I was a little apprehensive about a 4 hour snowshoeing expedition, but it was amazing. I was at the wrong place to be picked up, and they waited for me to find them (which was awesome) and then we set out with Nate, our fearless tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and very fun. Highlights were the sledding (kinda) and... More
