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.
