It was really chill. Nice little tour bus with a great guide that would introduce each places we visited with a bit of history or basic infos. They would stop at amazing spots to take great pictures. No need to rent a car, this tour was perfect to take us to the best places and viewpoints to see. Hop-on Hop-Off kinda tour but with a guide. i recommend

We had a great time on our Banff and Wildlife tour. We only had one day to fit what we could and the half day tour with Ali was full of information and high points of Banff. We were able to stop and get photos while on the the tour and our driver Ali was fantastic.

We had a brilliant tour guide from Winnipeg, unfortunately can't remember his name but he was great fun and made the tour really. We stopped off on various sites and lakes, binoculars were included which was great for trying to spot bears and deers. Really worthwhile trip that I thoroughly enjoyed

Our guide knew tons of local history and dropped tons of knowledge about nature surrounding Banff. My only slight rant would be that we hardly saw much wildlife besides chipmunks, ground squirrels and a quickly disappearing deer nobody's fault really, our guide tried their best to stop and try find them. You'll probably find more wildlife the further away from the town/humans. Brilliant for the nature and history though, I would go if you have about 34 hours to see the major highlights of this pretty town.
