Our first day in Banff was wonderful. The scenery from the top of the mountain was spectacular and the boat ride was perfect but maybe unnecessary. Our guides, Andy and Jessel, were informative and loads of fun. This is a great way to spend the day.

Loved this tour. It was our first full day in Banff and this tour gave us a great overview and showed us our way around the area. Clayton our driver/guide was excellent. Alex our host was fabulous. They took great care of us. Highly recommend it.

Wow wonderful way to start a visit to Banff.great guide ,gondola and cruise great and everything was beautiful...all the information we needed to have a great stay...FYI tours will leave you in town so you can have dinner there before retiring and there is a lot of live music in town in the evenings...

I felt like this tour was a great exposure to the Banff area. Good intro. I opted for the extra boat cruise add on which was so worth it.
Pace was good. Never felt like we dwelled too long at any one place. Smoke was definitely a bummer but that can't be controlled. Its 1/2 a day so eat a big breakfast. A lunch stop isn't really possible.

Jessel and Andy did a great job. One suggestion, don't bother with the gondola ride if there is smoke from wildfires!!
