Had a wonderful day on 5 September doing the hike up to Larch Valley from Moraine Lake. We were picked up from our hotel at 8 and arrived at the Lake around 9.45 (having made a bathroom stop in Lake Louise). Kelsey was a great guide making sure everyone kept together on the hike with frequent rest stops to ensure anyone who was lagging behind caught up. The hike itself was strenuous at the start with lots of switchbacks and elevation gain. When we got into the valley itself the views were simply stunning with the 10 peaks providing a fabulous backdrop for our lunch stop at 12. My wife and I hiked on a bit further whilst still in view of Kelsey to a small lake nearer Sentinel Pass. Kelsey provided plenty of information. Thank you Kelsey - you were great and made it a day to remember

We had a wonderful day hike to Stanley Glacier with our guide Jeff while visiting Banff. He was so full of information about the area and it’s wildlife yet never in a way that was too much. He also had a good sense of humor; a pretty critical piece for us! We felt very lucky to have him as our guide and I highly recommend Discover Banff Tours based on our experience.
It was a bit smoky from a fire outside of Jasper the day we hiked, did not lessen our enjoyment of the experience a bit!

Hi, Thank you for the kind words! All the hikes around Banff have stunning views, we are glad to hear the smoke didn't take away from the experience. Hope to see you on more of our hikes soon

Had a great walk in Larch Valley during peak larch season - so beautiful and it’s helpful to have a group to hike with when traveling solo. Andrew is an awesome guide, very friendly and knowledgeable; I learned a lot about the park, the trail, and the plants and animals of Banff. Even though it rained the whole time, Andrew kept our spirits up and provided optional ponchos too. Booking online was easy and the provided lunch was tasty and complied with my requested dietary customizations. The van was very clean and pick-up / drop-off were punctual.

We booked a Discover Banff Tours guided walk through a third party. Unfortunately there was confusion over the start time (7:45 vs 8:00am) and we watched the bus drive away as we ran down the road. We called immediately at 8:00am and spoke to the supervisor but we were informed the bus couldn’t turn round. We asked if our booking could be moved to the following or another day with availability but this was refused and their only offer was for us to pay in full again and contact the third party based in England, not withstanding we were in Banff and we had already paid close to Ca$600 for the trip. We declined. We understand things can go wrong, but great companies try to help their clients when things don’t go to plan. In our experience, Discover Banff will not try to help and will place the full loss and burden of responsibility on you, their customer and we would therefore not recommend them to fellow travellers.

Hello, Thank you for the review. All of our booking confirmations state to arrive 15 minutes before tour times starts. We did not have a contact number or email for you so we were not able to reach you before the tour time. Unfortunately, our guide waited as long as they could for you but as you arrived after the tour start time, the guide was not able to turn back after the tour started. We apologize for your experience and hope the rest of your trip to Banff was still enjoyable.

The guide Kelsey was positive, energized, knowledgeable and made our hiking experience fun.

As our hiking day trails were changed overnight, it was very new for our tour guide as well. The experience was completed without issues. It was nice and the mountains were beautiful.

We had to park at the Hotel where we were picked up- please advise in your brochure…. It was an extra expense plus it was very difficult to find parking in Banff.

A great day out with the guide doing the plain of the six glaciers hike. The guide was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. He ensured our safety was a priority and had lots of insight into the history of Banff, it’s wildlife and the surrounding areas. We were picked up on time, the lunch was delicious and we completed the hike in good time. We can’t recommend this hike enough!

Our original hike was changed due to snow on the trail. Instead we hiked to the Yamnuska shoulder.
Anicka, our excellent guide, displayed experience, patience, a wealth of knowledge about the flora and fauna and a great sense of humor.
She turned our 1600 foot elevation gain into a breeze!
Highly recommend her and the company.

This is a must do if you're in Banff. Signed up for the Stanley Glacier hike. Our guide Kelsey was very friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, very accomodating. My mom was having some trouble since the switches on the mountain were more challenging than anticipated - Kelsey was patient and took lots of breaks to make sure she didnt feel rushed and had enough time to catch her breath when needed. Seriously, you cant go wrong with discover banff tours - they're professional and knowledgeable.

Hi I'm sorry you are going to miss your tour in a couple of days, we really don't want to disappoint anyone. We made an honest error in our system set up which allowed to tour to be overbooked. If we had an extra hiking guide to take more guests, including yourself, we would have. We explained this to you over the phone, did our best to give you options for alternative days, alternative tours or a full refund, which you decided on. What frustrates me is, we were straight up with you, yet you proceeded to call my employees liars over the phone, and online. That is not very kind, nor productive. Hope you are able to enjoy your time in Banff despite not being able to join our tour. And again, we are sorry to disappoint you.

An excellent hike up to Stanley Glacier with Kelsey. Looked like the hike might not happen as cloud was low and not showing signs of clearing but she gave all of us the choice whether to go and being British of course we went!
It was a great hike, and kelsey was really informative, funny and knowledgable. The clouds did clear and we got great views as we descended. Well worth doing and if we had time here I would book again.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review. We have a saying in the mountains, "if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change." You never know what you will get but the views will always be beautiful. We hope the rest of your time in Banff was also enjoyable.
