While researching our trip to Banff, I started getting ads for the Open Top Touring. At first I wasn't too sure we needed a guided car tour, but whenever we do have a guided tour in a city, we always end up liking it as it's a great way to sample and get to know what we are visiting. So after multiple ads, we were swayed by the cool looking car and the option to combine with other activity (It ended up being more complicated if you wanted to book a restaurants rather than just the gondola, but all worth it)! The service and staff of the Open Top Touring were great, from the email correspondance, to the welcoming to the guided tour with Roz. The car is not only cool/fancy looking, it's also very clean and an original way to see the city. Plus, it looks better in photos than a random bus. Roz was knowledgeable, considerate, patient and allowed us to ask questions and slowed down for photos. All while driving carefully of course! We would highly recommend Open Top Touring if visiting Banff for a short while like we did or at least once!

Great tour and our guide Roz was excellent. So many beautiful vistas around Banff and we experienced most of them on the tour. Loved the old style bus and the 30's theme.

It’s great, we had a great time just if the tour could drive passing by some lake roads that would be the best.

We took two OpenTop tours—one in Jasper with our Irish tour guide (sorry I can’t remember his name) and one in Banff with Simon. Both tours fit into our limited time in both places. Both guides were informative, kind and amusing.

Since we were the last group of the year for Simon, he went out of his way to show us an extra site and even treated us to hot chocolate and a cookie—a very welcome treat on a cold day!

Went on the last tour for the season with Simon, he was magnificent. I saw parts of Banff I didn’t know about, he explained the history and even went out of his way to show us something extra that was bought up in conversation. The hospitality and professionalism shone bright. I would do it 100% over. My kids loved the effort put in for them as well.

The 1930's style tour bus was awesome and fun. The tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw a lot of scenic beauty and historic places too. It was a great tour and I would certainly do it again.

We were in Banff for a wedding- the majority of the grooms family is from Ontario, we were looking for something we could do together- our ages ranged from 2 to 73. We all had a great time, learned some history and got some great pictures. It was agreed that we would definitely do this type of tour again and would recommend it to others. Thank you Open Top Touring for this unique experience and thank you Roz our tour guide for all your help with our elderly family member.
