If you are in Banff and you want to experience the best way to get to see some amazing places without all the stresses of driving and parking, get to know the local history, local stories and knowledge of where to go, what to see and how, where to eat and drink, and also a joke thrown in every now and again, then we can 100% recommend these guys. The old school bus that you travel in is perfect. Lots of windows and not too big to feel crowded and stops to take some pics of the beautiful scenery. Tyler and his team of drivers and guides really want you to enjoy and make the most of your stay and also take the time to speak to everyone individually to answer any questions and are full of recommendations and advice. The best HOHO we've had. An absolute must in Banff. Thank you so much.

This excursion was one of our most memorable, we didn’t have to worry about driving, parking, or researching these beautiful distinctions. Lake Louise was amazing! Victoria Glacier is full view, an easy stroll around the lake or a tough hike to an awesome lookout.

Moraine lake was spectacular! With 10 mountain peaks around this lake, you can help but me mesmerized.

Johnston canyon was a great little hike along the river that was stunning with its views.

Dominique and Tyler were helpful in planning our day, taught us much about bears and their lives, and so much more about the area and it’s charm. They didn’t talk to much, and were very very helpful and pleasant. They help you see and do whatever suites you.

Highly recommend this adventure!

Excellent! If visiting Banff, we would highly recommend this tour. Tour guide, Tyler, was friendly and knowledge. He was also very helpful in providing suggestions and answering any questions. Driver Jeff made sure the ride was smooth - even when it started to snow. This tour is able to go directly to the stops, including Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, whereas passenger cars must park in a lot and use shuttles to various locations.

Thank you for your review! The drivers are all professional and experienced with mountain weather. Snow up at Moraine Lake that day made for an awesome experience also. Some of our guests said it was the highlight of their holiday even. Happy to hear you enjoyed it also.

This Bus Tour has to be Banff’s best Kept secret as I just lucked out and happened to find out about it by chance. It’s an Incredible value and The Guides both Tyler and James were Excellent as well as the drivers. They all were extremely nice and informative and answered any and all questions we had! This is one of the best tours I have taken anywhere! Thanks!

This was such an easy way to get to some truly amazing sites. The guides helped us plan our day which was so helpful. They also gave interesting facts about the places we were visiting and told some goid jokes! Strongly recommend the Hop on Hop off bus for a wonderful day of sightseeing.

Was a perfect way to see several of the Banff National park highlights. Tour operators very organized, friendly and knowledgeable. Worked out particularly well for our group of 4. We were able to each spend time where we wanted, to meet back up again during the day and at days end.
I strongly recommend this tour instead of renting a car(parking limitations). There was never an issue of missing the bus given the organized system.
Plus, easy to spot the only yellow school
Bus!!! Great to have windows open and fresh air!

So glad we took advantage of HopOnBanff! We had a grand day out on the well-maintained and professionally-driven yellow school buses. It allowed us to relax, enjoy the ride and the views along the way, and not have to worry about parking (which can be a challenge given the popularity of the various stops). Plus, our guides provided fun and educational insights about the park throughout the day. Viator bills this excursion as a Hop On Hoff Off experience, but it’s really just Hop On. You can choose when to start your day from three different start times depending on whether you want to explore all the stops in one day or whether you’re only interested in a few. We started our day on the 12:15pm bus and were back in downtown Banff by 6pm. We were able to see Lake Louise and Lake Moraine. I recommend using their website HopOnBanff.com to plan your day and answer all of your questions. Thank you Dominique, Jeff, James, and Bobby for a really memorable day!

Great day with Dominique on our first bus and James on our second. Wasn’t sure where we were going to stop but with their help we visited Moraine Lake (stunning) and Lake Louise. Easy to find the pick ups and instructions for walks were spot on. A great way to see the area without congestion and stress of parking. An absolute must if you want to visit Banff National Park.

Wow! What an incredible day we’ve just had! Took our 15mo son and Bobby the driver was so delightful with him and friendly to us. James the guide/coordinator was incredible, very informative as well as humorous. We loved every second and couldn’t rate highly enough. Definitely the best way to see the sights as hard to find parking and you get the added info on the local wildlife and geography, as well as ride on an iconic yellow school bus. The lakes are insane too but that goes without saying. A must do. And also great value for money. Also bang on time so no hanging around, very efficient but with plenty of time to see the stops and get the views and pics in. Amazing.

Thank you so much for your review. Bobbi behind the wheel and James guiding on the bus have been a fantastic addition to our team. It is so great to hear that they made your experience memorable. And the lakes are not too shabby either!
