We had a very informative tour guide and got to see some animals including black bear, elk, long horn sheep, and a raven. I also saw the same animals driving on my own during the trip but the general information given by the guide was nice extra.
This was our first time in Banff and had just gotten to the hotel. The tour did everything we were hoping it would do. It showed us around the area, gave a little history and told us what we were seeing. Had great luck in seeing animals. Bear, elk, deer and long horn sheep. Was nice to be picked up from the hotel and not have to drive. Would recommend this tour if you are looking to see wildlife and get familiar with the area.

We saw a bear and lots of elk young and old. Norm, our tour guide, was very passionate, informative and entertaining. Great value for money.
I did the wildlife Safari in Banff National Park last week and it was amazing! I was traveling with a woman who has an intellectual disability as well as some physical restrictions and the guide was amazing, offering lots of information and paid individual attention to my friend. She had a wonderful time seeing and hearing about the animals in the park, she says it was her favorite part of our trip to Alberta! Thank you so much Sam!!
Loved this tour, for the price it is excellent. Gena was a great tour guide and we saw a lot of elk, especially on the golf course.
Jordan our guide and driver was full of information and was very friendly and outgoing. We were able to glimpse 3 bear sightings, 3 goats, and several deer. The scenery was fantastic! Would recommend this to anyone wanting to see more of the park.
Becky was great. We didn't see Animals but the education was fantastic .
Guide brilliant we looked for all sorts found longhorn sheep, mule deers and elks all the bears eluded us. Fantastic evening out.
The animals were otherwise occupied but that is a chance you take.
A very knowledgeable, passionate tour guide made up for it.
Well worth it just in case.

The animals are active throughout the day but seem to be more active in early morning or in the evening.
Our guide took us to areas where we saw several Elk and a two Black Bears.
It was especially satisfying to finally take a photo of a Black Bear in the wild.
Greta guide who continued on to search after the allotted time had expired. Good local knowledge.
Well, we didn't see a bear or a moose, but our tour guide, Ben made sure we saw plenty of wildlife on this great tour, plus all the best places for photographs. A great experience and one to remember for a long time. All your tour guides are a credit to your company.

The French guy was great - fun and yet very informative. Just the right person as he had a flare for animals and nature. Ideal for wildlife safari's in case you do not get lucky with things to see!

A great little trip with a guide who clearly enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the local wildlife.
A great small group tour with an informative guide who did her best to maximise wildlife spotting opportunities. A plus is the drive out to Lake Minnewanka, so you get great scenery as well as a different wildlife habitat. We finished up by visiting a lookout over Banff for a photo op.
The pictures of the Grizzly bear and cubs is very misleading. The guide was knowledgable and did a great job of finding Elk and Deer but we were driving on fairly main roads. He made it pretty clear that it's unlikely a Grizzly would be spotted. Still a fun experience though.
We didn't see so many animals but the lady in charge of the tour kept us interested the whole trip, she was very good telling us stories and facts about the wild.
It was wonderful trip though only spotting 1 bird and 1 fish. But this trip attracted my attention to the deep woods where the wild animals might be hiding. The tour guide is nice and knowledgeable.
The Guide was very nice and knowledgeable. We saw a bear, mountain goats, and a few other animals. I only wish we were able to get off the bus to get a better picture from a safe distance of course.
A very enjoyable experience. Jordan was a very enthusiastic guide
The evening wildlife safari was excellent. Norm the guide was very knowledgable and was able to answer all our questions. We were lucky enough to see several deer and some bird life.
Great tour with knowlegible guide. Would have loved to have seen a bear but saw long horned sheep, a coyote, an elk and deer. Oops forgot the squirrels. You take your chance on these kind of tours to see animals but we really enjoyed it and learnt lots. Overall I would recommend this tour.
