Our tour on the evening of September 5, 2014 resulted in seeing a herd of elk plus a group of young bighorn sheep with their mother (in a separate location from the elk). We also saw some beautiful scenery in zones we would not necessarily have known about without the tour, multiple birds, plus a sunset from a gorgeous vista... More

This is a total waste of money. I know you can't predict when animals will appear but we saw NOTHING. The van speeds along far too fast and when it does stop to reverse to try and see something it BEEP BEEPS with a vehicle reversing sound. The guide was nice and had plenty of info on the area, but...

We hadn't had much time to plan by the time we arrived in Banff, so we set up an easy half-day tour with Discover Banff to buy some planning time and get a feel for the area. The tour ended up being great, as we checked off some of the main, quick Banff attractions with minimal effort. Perhaps the best... More

We we were picked we up late, then waited 10 minutes whilst Nate the guide went round asking names and where we were from, who cares? We went to Vermillion lakes and mount Norquay looking for wildlife, we saw two elks, neither of which Nate found! The only way Nate would have found wildlife was if he ran it over... More

Took a full day tour to Ice Fields Parkway (Lake Louise, Peyto Lake, Athabasca glacier.) Mia was our driver and she was delightful. She gave us much info about what we were seeing and I highly recommend this tour. We enjoyed it! Even saw a bear, sheep and an eagle. Took the evening Wildlife Tour and felt it was a... More

Just had a wonderful trip to Lake Louise and Moraine Lake with our guide and driver Becky. She is very knowledgable and enthusiastic and made the trip most enjoyable. If you are staying in Banff and want to pass an afternoon I can thoroughly recommend this company.10/10 Becky

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
