Overview
Without a guided tour, you’re likely to miss the stunning views that set Banff National Park apart as one of Canada’s most-visited outdoor attractions. This tour lets you relax and listen to commentary about the region while someone else handles the mountainous roads and crowded parking lots en route to top Banff sights, including Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, and the Bow Valley Parkway.

What to Expect
From your central Banff hotel, board a comfortable bus that provides views mountain scenery, including highlights like Bow Valley Parkway and Castle Mountain.

Then, continue to Moraine Lake, an equally beautiful glacial lake situated 6,185 feet (1,885 meters) above sea level in the Rocky Mountains. Finally, walk to a vista point in the Valley of Ten Peaks for an unbeatable view over Moraine Lake and the surrounding mountains and valleys. Your tour concludes at the original departure point.

When we purchased the tickets, we thought we would see both Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. But it turns out that by Oct 26th the road to Moraine Lake is closed off. So we only got to see Lake Louise for the whole 4-hour tour. Our guide took us to two additional vista points, both

Neil was an excellent guide with great information about history & locales... I was surprised that the maple cookies were "store bought" & the water was not individual bottles but small plastic glasses. Still would recommend it! WE WERE A FAMILY WITH ADULT CHILDREN...no

Although I am the one that made the error-this tour should not be booked after Oct 14th as Moraine Lake area is closed. For me that is the reason I booked according to the name of the tour. They should edit the name of the tour if a portion of it they know will be closed. We

Response from DiscoverBanffTours, Manager at Banff National Park Tour with Lake Louise and Moraine Lake
Responded Nov. 1, 2019
Hello Donna, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback to us. You're completely right, this tour does typically include Lake Louise and Moraine Lake however the access road to Moraine Lake closes in early October each year due to avalanche risk by Parks Canada. After this point, the tour spends additional time at Lake Louise. We're sorry to hear that you didn't see the information about the Moraine Lake closure when booking online, and we have requested a refund for your tour through TripAdvisor who it appears you booked with. If you do not hear from them shortly, please follow up with them directly as we have approved the refund on our end but they have taken your payment. As a result of your feedback we have created a different tour specifically for the fall season after Moraine Lake access is closed, to make this clearer for all guests visiting Banff from mid October to November. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in Banff.
