We were in Banff on 20/21 June when the Alberta flooding was at its peak and Canmore cut off. At a very worrying and difficult time I thought the visitor centre team did a great job with the many visitors they dealt with over that period, well done

They give very good service but our guide was quite new. She gave us a lot of information not only on Banff and was willing to help.

Recommend to enter immediately upon coming to the city. I got a list of hotels and their location. Vlade all registered with the hotel cost tens of dollars or more than one hundred, and so on. I got a map and explanation. I received great service

Please do visit the information center and obtain maps, guidance and directions to the areas for sight seeing in Banff and surrounding areas. Timing is from 9.00 am. The late start in the morning is the only drawback here.
