          Fantastic private tour of the Rockies
          What a wonderful day we had with Robbie exploring both Banff & Yoho National Parks on a private tour, visiting Two Jack Lake, Lake Minnewanka, Moraine Lake, Emerald Lake, the Natural Bridge & Takakkaw Falls. Robbie is a personable young man with a good sense of humour & is extremely knowledgeable about the area. Although we had a full itinerary, we never felt rushed & Robbie ensured we didn’t miss anything. We highly recommend Beyond Banff Tours to see the best of the Rockies. Thanks again Robbie!

          Amazing Experience
          We had Robbie as our tour guide for two days and he was amazing. He made sure we saw everything possible within the short amount of time we had with him. We would highly recommend everyone book with Beyond Banff at a minimum and go for the private tours if possible!

          Awesome trip
          This was a wonderful tour despite hazy clouds and actual rain/ snow on the Icefields/glacier. Skyla was our tour guide and she was the best. She was friendly, knowledgeable of the area and sites and just plain fun. We met her on another tour a few days later (she was shadowing the guide) and she was just as friendly and knowledgeable and so giving of herself. The area was beautiful despite bad weather, definitely an unforgettable experience. Our bus driver was Matthias. He was also great! Fun, knowledgeable of all the areas and did a great job driving!

          I organized a conference in Banff for colleagues from across the country. That included several shuttle runs from and to the airport as well as 3 hour private evening tours for some delegates. Robbie was so easy to work with for the planning. Offered reasonable rates for everything. He was extremely knowledgeable on the tour and has an infectious sense of humor. It has been a great pleasure Robbie! More than five stars from this customer.

          Best Tour Guide!
          Robbie was our private tour guide for a day and took us all over the Lake Louise area. He knows the area really well and was just all around a great tour guide. If I ever go back to Canada, he will be my first call! Thanks Robbie for a great experience.

          Columbia Ice Fields & Lake Louise
          Our tour through Sun Dog Tours was great ! We walked on glaciers, spotted a black bear & a fox. Steve was our tour guide & he was a good guide. When we went onto the Icefields, Shayne was our driver & he was fun & knowledgeable. I know he is the best driver because he told us so. He was very solitous of those of us who had a hard time walking on the ice.

          Memorable trip to Banff
          Robbie was such a great guide. He really took good care of my family on our first trip to Banff. I’ve already recommended him to all of my family and friends. Please book him for a private tour!

          Loving the Rockies
          My family did the Best of Banff and Yoho tour with Beyond Banff tours and I must say it was one of the most enjoyable days we have had. From the moment we were picked up to the time we were dropped off our tour operator Robbie couldn’t do enough for us. He was very professional and knowledgeable while at the same time making the whole day fun and making us feel like family. We saw some of the most beautiful lakes and a fantastic waterfall in the area.If you are ever travelling to the Banff area I fully recommend that you take in a tour with Beyond Banff tours you won’t regret it.

          Lake Louise and Lake Moraine Private Tour—Beyond Banff Tours
          We had Robert as our guide. He was excellent at providing information and keeping us informed about the items such as the landscape, weather, points of interest, etc. He was also a very experienced and safe driver in the hazardous weather conditions we faced. I would highly recommend this tour.

          Fun day around Banff and more...
          Robbie Sr was an excellent tour guide and driver - we all enjoyed the day so much (even tho it rained the entire day). It was interesting and beautiful and it was so nice not to have to drive and find these places. I would definitely trust him for a very pleasant day!!

          Yoho National Park and Lake Louise and Banff motor coach tour
          My sister and I recently traveled to Canada for a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer with Orbridge. Our coach driver in Banff was Nick, who was a very knowledgeable and congenial young man. We all enjoyed his humor and great information. He even found us a “bear jam” in Banff National Park!

          Lake Louise and Icefield Parkway
          As a keen travel photographer I was looking at doing things a little different from my usual coach tours. I booked a private tour of Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway with Beyond Banff. The tour guide , Rob jnr was such a dedicated guide, he hiked with me off the trail and down through the woods to a spot for the best pictures of Peyto Lake ... With a BROKEN LEG ... On Crutches !!! Honestly you had to see it to believe it . Arriving at Moraine lake arrangements had be made for me to join Rob Snr and his group to the top of the rock pile for my photographs of the lake from above. Rob snr offered to take pictures of anyone with a camera, which was a real treat to be in some of my travel pictures. To say it was An Absolutely amazing day doesn’t come close ! Thanks so much to Rob jnr , Rob snr and Rob the driver . You all did an amazing job Hopefully I’ll see you again for another adventure !

        Even though it was foggy and rainy, the views were spectacular. Robbie was a friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable tour guide, we enjoyed talking to him. The pacing was great - some longer stops with accessible hikes, some short photo opp stops, and plenty of time to warm up in between en route. Robbie was prepared with water and coffee for everyone.

        We went out on the last trip of the season and the weather was not great as a winter storm came in. Our guide was awesome though and took us to some other places not on the itinerary just so that we’d be able to see some good sights… and they were great! In the afternoon the weather cleared and we could go to Lake Louise Village and also see Lake Louise. He was informative and fun and we felt in great hands. The highlight of our trip to Banff.

        I booked this trip while visiting my son in Canmore in June and I can't recommend Robbie and Rob, this tour and this Company highly enough. I was picked up at my son's apartment in Canmore and joined a group of around 16 others who were picked up at various locations in Banff before setting off on our day trip. We visited lakes and glaciers, each one more stunning than the last with Robbie's interesting and informative facts along the way. Ice cold water, soft drinks and snacks - especially tomato sauce crisps - were provided throughout the day and plenty time was allowed at each stop with a lunch stop in Lake Louise village. During the trip, I was notified of a close family bereavement and Robbie and his Dad who had another bus party on the same tour, went out of their way to assist all they could. The highlights of the day for me were seeing Lake Louise 'defrosted' 😁 and Peyto Lake but mostly the Moraine Lake which will remain a very special memory for me although I hope to be back to kayak in the amazing glacial waters. The mountains and lakes are there to be visited but Beyond Banff go above and beyond to ensure you have an amazing experience to remember. Thanks for everything guys.

        We had a lovely day with Rob exploring the most amazing lakes and sights in Banff, Alberta and beyond. Rob was extremely informative about the places we visited and was wealth of knowledge as a local . He took pictures for everyone and was so engaging that people around us stopped to listen to his stories

        Small family-owned business that truly focuses on providing an excellent customer experience. We were picked up right at our hotel at Canmore. They clearly know the area well - just when you think you've seen the best, they take you to another amazing place. Peyto Lake, our last stop, was the least congested and the view was incredible - far more enjoyable than the touristy Lake Louise. Our tour guide/owner, Robbie, led us on the walks at Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake. Would highly recommend the Beyond Banff tour company to anyone.

        We just would like to thank Dustin and Denver, our driver and tour guide on this amazing trip. Comfort, safety, knowledge of wildlife and history are just some of their amazing qualities. They prepared some snacks and cold water to drink in between stops and we were able to see a bear munching on berries thanks to Dustin's quick eyes and a bull elk roaming on the highway. They have have good sense of humour too so it is never boring after such a long ride from Lake Louise to Jasper. I highly recommend this trip. 2 thumbs up.

        Robbie was an amazing tour guide! We saw a wolf, a bear and some mountain sheep oh my! This was the best way to see as many sites as possible in a one day shot. Parking a car is brutal at Lake Louise and others, so taking the bus and learning about the Rockies and the Banff area made it an incredible experience. We have a family of 5 with 3 young kids and they loved it too. Book this excursion.

        Ron, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and professional. He made the full-day experience enjoyable. He took us to several popular "can't miss" spots (such as Lake Louise), but he also took us to lesser known beautiful locations (such as Two Jack Lake, Natural Bridge, and Mt. Norquay). Although he never confessed to making arrangements with the wildlife, he seemed to know exactly where to go so we could experience amazing wildlife sightings. We saw a coyote, a grizzly bear, two black bears, many elk, deer, and mountain goats. It was nice to enjoy the day in a small group with only seven other passengers. We highly recommend this tour!

        The bus, the guides & the route were great but my only suggestion would be to either start picking people up earlier or have people meet up in a single spot in Banff. We spent so much time picking people up, I am sure if it was differently we would be able to stay at least 30 min longer at Lake Louise for example. There isnt enough time to do anything. I came back to the bus 10 min late after stopping at Lake Louise because I had to use the washroom. At Moraine Lake which is another gorgeous lake, you just have time for photos, no time to sit down & enjoy. But I understand it is a tour and we get to see a lot in a day, just try to optimize the time so we can have more time at the main lakes.

        We took this tour on our first day in Banff. We then knew where we would like to re-visit on our own during the remainer of our trip. Robby and Robert were awesome guides. They gave us all the highlights of each stop and carried on conversations with us while on the bus. We learned so much about the area from this trip. There were 20 of us and we made great friends from many countries. I can't stress enough how wonderful it was to do this the first day. By being on a bus/van you have premium parking and access to all the best attractions. This is a MUST DO for the Canmore/Banff area.
