Our tour through Discover Banff Tours was very fun! We were picked up on time at our hotel and were impressed with this! We were the only ones picked up from our hotel so it was encouraging when we saw the bus pull into the parking lot. We picked up other guests at one more hotel and we were off... More

Although we didn't get to see a bear, thanks to our tour guide Neil handing us all some great binoculars we were able to see some elk near the waters edge. Our tour highlights included Bow Falls, Hoodoos & Bow Valley Viewpoint and Lake Minnewanka. We had a beautiful morning and saw some amazing scenery. Thanks Neil, you looked after... More

We experienced the Sundance Loop horse riding, 2 hours, with also our daughter, 8 years old. The path is very easy and safe, both for beginners and children, views are beautiful and guides are careful and cooperative. Surely it is a pleasant experience, although not so "wild", being in groups of about 10-15 people riding in line. Only negative part... More

My husband and I did 2 tours with Discover Banff Tours. 1. Icefields Parkway Tour (tour guide was Jordan) and Discover Grizzly Tours (tour guide was Ronnie). Both these guides had an amazing knowledge of the area. They provided us with commentary all day. They both were very friendly, organised and customer focus on mind. The Icefield were amazing and...

Although it was quite a cold and damp evening, my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our safari. Jo-Anne, our driver/guide was very informative with a great sense of humour. She passed round pictures of a variety of animals and told us about their healthy regeneration programme. We saw two bull elk and would have seen the whole of a bear... More

In the face of adversity (raining quite hard and no real animal sightings ( a herd of elk), Ed our driver and guide worked hard to make the evening enjoyable and informative. Think with things like this you roll the dice so would probably book again.

Being on top of the glacier seems so unreal and still amazing . The glaciers are one masterpiece of nature with clean flowing water , vast expanse of ice spread on the mountains , its serenity and purity takes you to another world of peace and tranquility . I am really short of words to describe how beautiful it is... More

We went on an early evening tour to see some local animals. Our guide, an Australian, was excellent and was very informative. He attempted to try and show us some of the local animals, but unfortunately, no bears were seen. All in all, a great trip
