“Stop here first!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Terrific place....National Park rangers available to help you on one side, and Banff Information people on the other. We got help with hiking/driving ideas, and a helpful ranger gave us detailed info on our drive from Calgary to Glacier N.P.
We paid our park fees there too.
Always a good idea to stop in one of these places if you have limited time in an area, so you know what not to miss.

“very busy place with long lines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

compared to the visitor center in jasper, the banff information center is much smaller, does not sit on nice grounds, is very busy with a long wait to get information, and generally feels more like going to a bank and waiting for a teller rather than going to a visitor center to get tourist information
