“Great Help”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Very informative staff, and well equipped traveler information centre in downtown Banff. We chatted about the Robinson history in Banff, and the reunion of 19 cousins/descendants who were descending on Banff for a very special gathering.

“BC is very close!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I know the centre serves Banff mainly but many people do the drive to Golden and ten back through Kootenay National Park...and we did buy our pass for all the National Parks. The person who tried to help us knew very little about the circuit we eventually took. Better training needed here, Parks Canada!!!

“Highly recommend you start here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Very knowledgable staff, no agenda but to help you with what I thought were unbiased recommendations.
The only negative I can think of is it is on the second floor and I'm not sure if they have handicapped accommodations ?
