5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Although we did not see much wildlife, the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and it's history, as well as the wildlife and their habitats. I thoroughly enjoyed the time and came away feeling I had learned a great deal. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting Banff.

It was a good overview of things to do in Banff. Gave an interesting history of the area, tour guide very friendly and very knowledgeable.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2017

We had guessed there was a smaller chance of seeing wildlife due to the tour being in winter, however this was not made known from the Tour company itself, rather a guess on our behalf.
We were shown photos / pictures of some of the animals which are often seen however some of these were nothing more than internet pictures rather than real photos which could have been taken by the tour guides or previous travellers.
I would not recommend that someone does this tour in winter after our experience.
