Calgary to Banff day trip

This was an excellent adventure. The day trip to sulphur mountain and the gondola ride were amazing. Our host Joe and driver Rebecca were very knowledgeable and funny and made everyone feel at home also answering all questions . The snack time and meet were chances to talk to the others and meet new friends..Overall an awesome time..Thanks

Very short trip and not comfortable for people traveling with kids

Our rides from Calgary was smooth, however the driver was rude when we asked him clarification on the next transfer bus for Banff sight seeing (8:30am). He was upset that we asked him couple of time about the same thing, but we were not sure where we should go for the next bus. The gondola trip was great and they managed it really well and we were pleased to see that they gave us a separate gondola since we were with an toddler. However, the rest of the trip after Gondola was not very good, there were too many short trips and it was really hard for us travelling with a toddler. Keep in mind that they drop you off around Banff downtown around 1:30PM and no proper information was provided to us about the next pick up to Calgary (also we were dropped off at the wrong locations, since the guide missed our stop). We had to call customer support multiple times to find the nearest pickup point and we didnt have enough time for proper lunch since we had confusion on the next pickup. Overall, I would not recommend someone who is planning for this trip from Calgary for a day and it may be useful for people who are already staying in Banff.
The Canadia beauty in one day

If you are happened to be in Calgary for a short period of time, you can enjoy the real natural beauty in one day by taking this trip. The local operators is very good. I was very impressed by the precise timing of departure and arrival of each points. I do wish they cut one of the view point (like Fairmont Spring Hotel) and increase the time of staying at lake shore for those who do not want to take a lake cruise.

This 10 hour day started with a two hour bus ride from Calgary to Banff. There was Lake Louise in all her splendor as shadows mirrored the pristine waters. We drove through town to see the resort. Went through fashionable neighborhoods. While in Banff, we rode the gondola for a panoramic view of the resort many thousands of feet below. An optional boat cruise on Lake Minnewanka was taken. Touristy, but still spectacular. This tour was very professional. Recommended.

We enjoyed our all day trip from Calgary to Banff, riding the gondola and seeing all the sights around Banff. It was especially nice to enjoy a cup of coffee or hot chocolate after the trip to the sulfur springs!! I am still using my cup back at work. The only jarring note was that we thought we would be taken back to the Fairmont Pallister Hotel in Calgary where we had started the trip that morning but there was a side trip to the airport first making the day longer. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable day with great hosts and I would highly recommend it!!
