Great Tour and Tour Guide
Sep 2019
I had a great time with Discover Banff. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. Her name was Raven and she made the trip so interactive and fun. I saw so much that I did not see if I would have toured this place by myself. Discover Banff showed showed me what Banff and the wildlife really has to offer. Thank for that!

Had a great guide thanks Aaron you made it fun as well as informative, would have given 5 but we didn’t see much in the way of wildlife. Probably as it was such a glorious sunny day.

Fantastic Tour with Wonderful Guide
Sep 2019
We went on this tour today having just arrived in Banff for our first visit. Pete was a fantastic guide and extremely knowledgeable and personable. He knows so much about the history of Banff and all the different wildlife of the area. I highly recommend this tour because it’s just the right length (about 2 1/2 hours), and it really gives you a great overview of the area and stops at many scenic places along the way.

First day and just wow
Sep 2019 • Friends
We arrived in Banff late last night after a full day travelling. The Banff tour and its wildlife was our first thing to do. KATY our tour guide was brilliant. Lots of local knowledge and added humour. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery is stunning and this trip ticks all the boxes. Would highly recommend.

Interesting and Scenic tour
Jul 2019
Our bus driver Pete was extremely personable but most importantly, he was super knowledgeable about the town and the area. He knew a lot of the background and history. Plus he read numerous books to learn more to provide even more knowledge than a typical tour guide. I would recommend this tour if you want to learn about the area and want a tour that is relatively short.

Worth the time and money!

Worth the money for stories & history of Banff- and for not having to find parking places at popular places. Linda, the guide was engaging and humorous and made it a fun trip.

Great tour in the rain!
Jul 2019 • Couples
It was astonishing how knowledgeable Pete was about Banff and its environs, considering he is a Mancunian, and has only lived in Canada for six years. But he has mastered the history of his adoptive country, and clearly loves the Banff National Park. We did the tour on Saturday 20 July in continual rain, but his enthusiasm for his subject was never dampened, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting tour. Thank you, Pete!
