We have lived in Alberta all our lives but have not been to the Columbia Ice Fields or Jasper since we were children. This area is a must see, whether you live here or are visiting. The tour operators are excellent and well organized. We learned a lot and saw some of the most stunning scenery possible. The only downside... More

Wonderful. Good way to see the area quickly. We were in Banff for 2 days and wanted to see as much as possible. Our guides were helpful good, knowledgeable about the area, full of suggestions of what to see and where to take pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed these tours. Both our guides were good (Mark for Lake Moraine and Lake... More

We hiked to the Plain of Six Glaciers and the tea house with a guide named Nate. He was great! The hike was gorgeous. If you are in Lake Louise, you don't want to miss this hike.

Mark, our guide, was really excellent. He knew a lot about the Banff area which made the trip really special. Plus he had a great sense of humor and was super nice. We didn't see a huge amount of wildlife but that can't be helped - it is "wild life" after all! The woman who had the various animal pelts... More

We were only in Banff for a couple of days and were looking for something to do in the evening and purely by chance whilst strolling through Banff Shopping Mall did we come across Discover Banff Tours. They were offering an 'EVENING WILDLIFE SAFARI' for $46.00 CAD per person. Now to be quite honest, at first I was somewhat skeptical... More

I'm afraid as the title suggests this doesn't constitute a 'wildlife safari' and a complete misrepresentation of what is actually offered. It's a coach trip on public roads hoping to see the odd animal and just in case you don't you will be handed a laminated picture of said animal as a consolation. Commentary ok and driver did his best... More

I booked this tour so neither my husband or I would have to drive and we would have the time to enjoy the sights and wildlife together. Our guide Ed was funny and informative. We loved the fact we got out of the vehicle to learn more about the over and under passes and the history of wildlife and the... More
