    I couldn't have asked for a better trip to see Banff. Kevin went above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience. If you're wanting to get the most out of a day trip, this is 100% the way to go! Thank you Kevin!

    Loved this experience. I and my friends had a great time completing the ghost canyon. It was entire day filled with some exciting slides, pool jumps, and rappelling. Will definitely do this again if I come back and attempt the advanced canyoning. Our tour guide was Marc who was just amazing and fun to be around. He really made our experience one to remember. If you are in Calgary, banff, or Canmore I for sure recommend you go canyoning with your friends and family who are able. It was the highlight of our trip.

    Jacob, our guide, knew everything we needed to know about keeping us safe, as well as the best spots for gazing at the sunsets/stars.

    He's also a joke cracker, so watch out for those 😂. We had a good sized group with us, and everyone was friendly too.

    We had so much fun! The walkthrough Banff was excellently paired with spooky tales that left us wanting more. Definitely going to have to do the Canmore walk as well. I want to check out all the locations that were mentioned in the future as well.

    Good tip: bring layers and a drink, it gets cold when the sun sets and a couple hours of walking will leave you ready for a class of water.

    I highly recommend this guided hike! We were able to experience the beauty of the mountains in way that we would never have been able to do on our own. It is UNBELIEVABLY gorgeous- a must do!! Our guide, Jeff, is very professional and came prepared with everything we needed - hiking poles, ice axes (it snowed just before our hike), a fabulous lunch, and even a couple spare hiking jackets for those of us who over-dressed and needed something more appropriate to wear. The hike itself was challenging/adventurous, but still very manageable for the inexperienced. When we remember our trip to Banff - this will be the day we remember the best:)

    We had a private hiking tour with Heidi for the Johnston Canyon Ice walk this morning. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time with Heidi from the moment she greeted us at pick up to drop off. Her enthusiasm for nature was contagious and knowledge of the canyon and it's environment was an incredible learning experience. I would highly recommend Heidi as a guide!

    Thank you Discover Banff Tours

    The Banff historical walk is an informative and beautiful walk around the Cave and Basin area of Banff. Our guide showed up dressed in historic gear from the era the park was founded (1885). From the start he gave us an option of two tour routes, one with muddy trails, one on mostly paved trails. We went with the muddy trails, but it was appreciated that he gave us a choice. The tour was very interesting giving a history of the founding of Canada’s first National Park, the city of Banff, and the ties to railroads, some questionable characters, and Victorian tourism. The tour was sprinkled with humor, history, and some ecological facts. Highly recommend if you are interested in history presented with humor with breathtaking views.

    Gorgeous evening ice walk in the beautiful Johnston Canyon with a brilliant guide called Gina. Her humour, friendliness, knowledge and passion for the protection and conservation of the park and its natural inhabitants was inspiring and made the trip extra special. A magical star-lit walk to end our holiday perfectly. Thank you

    200% would recommend snowshoeing with Anick, she was our guide to the Marble Canyon, she is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and funny. We stayed downtown Banff, and Anick picked us up from our hotel, so no need to worry about transportation. Anick is always looking out for her members, making sure everyone is doing okay. Not to forget the delicious hot chocolate and maple taffy, it was a delight. The company made sure social distancing were practiced, we had a small group of five and everyone was well-apart even in the van/bus. My family enjoyed every second of it. Snowshoeing is great for all-ages!

    Rob was a truly exceptional tour guide! His knowledge of the history of Banff’s inception, rationale for Park’s Canada's tough decisions regarding wildfires, and specific vegetation/land knowledge was unrivaled to any other Banff tour I’ve taken. Not only does Rob posses a depth and breadth of knowledge in many areas, he is an incredibly personable guide. He shares about his life story and is genuinely interested in each guests story as well. Rob truly lives his life demonstrating an appreciation for all that the Canadian Rockies offer with his stories of hiking, skiing, and many other outdoor activities. I unfortunately lost my phone while snowshoeing after falling into a deep tree well, and without hesitation Rob was running back through the trail where we eventually uncovered it several feet under the snow. I knew the chance of finding it was slim, but Rob never made me feel that I inconvenienced the trip and he didn’t give up until we found it. Once we arrived back at the bus another vehicle was stuck in some deep snow in the parking lot, and again Rob did not hesitate to run over and join other tour guests trying to help. These actions are far beyond the tour description and for that reason he deserves the title of Canadian Rockies Superhero. I will certainly look to book any future tours with Rob.
