Jesse ( sorry if spelled incorrectly ) the tour guide was very friendly , always has his smile on . My friend always asked him if we were the last one who hopped on to the bus after each visited , he would said he will head count first before saying yes … that’s shown how he cares n his proper manner to deal with matter arise .
The only thing I would love to suggest of add on couple hours seeing the evening scenery in Banff town , that would be perfect !
After all , the whole trip was amazing !
Thank you n applause to the driver Gary for driving safely to the destinations n back to Calgary !
Hoping to meet both of you again !

Great day trip with a small group of people. There was a hike to Johnston canyon, stopped at Banff town for lunch, hoodoos viewpoint, surprise corner viewpoint, as well as taken the beautiful gondola ride to Sulphur mountain. Our guide was knowledgeable about the tourist attractions and was very helpful

The tour was outstanding. It included the gondola ride, hike through Johnston Canyon and stops at multiple wonderful sites. Sammy was good humored, thoughtful, well-organized, and provided great historical information. We only had one day in Banff and were delighted to spend it on this tour.

The tour guide was very soft spoken and conducted the tour in 3 languages so it was very difficult to follow - if we had known this was the case ahead of time, we would have chosen a different tour. According to the listing, starting in Nov we were supposed to receive crampons for the snow but these were never handed out. Johnston's Canyon was a sheet of ice and we fell multiple times, and we were among the younger members of the tour so I could only imagine how everyone else was feeling. We thought the price was meant to cover entrance to all the sites but really only one site had an entrance fee so paying that for just a bus and a tour guide that didn't actually give any audible info wasn't worth it. The guide was also late (which is fine as the roads were icy) but once he picked us up he immediately said "everyone is in the bus waiting on you" which was very rude as we had also been waiting for the pickup. Overall the sites were beautiful but we could have just driven to them all ourselves and had a more pleasant time.

I will say that the tour company itself was very communicative and responsive when we had questions about the trip given the weather, so we appreciated that!

My wife and I had a great day. It would've been nice to have spent a bit more time in Banff Avenue, but fully appreciate this would've resulted in us having less stops on the trip. Sammy was a fantastic tour guide - Larger than life, great sense of humor and great to be around.

Well organized with perfect timing and duration of stops. The Banff Gondola stop was the highlight of the tour. The Hoodoo stop could have been excluded to save extra time for the Johnston Canyon.

The sights were varied and amazing! The driver/guide was friendly, informative, and kept to the schedule. My only suggestion would be to allow more time for lunch and waking around Banff town.

Sadly, no advance info on the places to visit was available.
A schedule would have enable to be better prepared. While the guide was very helpful, we were not too familiar with the sites he mentioned.
