Open Top Touring is an Over-the-top experience!! We happened to hear someone at our hotel, The Crimson, inquiring about the tour, so we asked about it and booked a tour for the following morning!! We had the pleasure of Superman Jake and his sidekick, Conner, who was training that day, take us on the most enjoyable tour. We travel a lot, and this was an exceptional experience! They made everyone feel right at home, no matter what age you were. They were humorous, educational and quick witted to say the least. They even celebrated a last minute birthday party that they found out about. Highly recommended!

As first time visitors to Banff we were fortunate to join JJ on the very cool retro tour bus.
We spent the afternoon with JJ showing us the 2 beautiful lakes and other natural sites that make Banff a great destination. He is very knowledgeable and makes the tour so enjoyable with his humor and attention to detail to please the customer. A beautiful snowy day was the perfect touch for a winter wonderland!
The gondola ride and its surprises are a super way to end a grand tour!
I highly recommend this tour.

The tour was a very satisfying way to start off our stay in Banff. Was treated to some great views as well as some local history. Got a good lay of of the land and found some places of interest to visit during out stay. Our tour guide J.J. was great fun, he lived the experience considerably and was a good source of local information. I would recommend the tour to anyone planning to spend some time in Banff.

This was a great experience on our first day in Banff. Our tour guide, Irish Connor, was very knowledgeable and had the same level of charm and charisma as the slightly more famous Irish Connor. We saw so many highlights and were able to get out and walk around many of these areas. The bus was very nice- italian leather and 7.6 L V8 engine, perfect for getting up the mountain. Overall would highly recommend, and would suggest requesting a tour with Irish Connor.

Our guide JJ was very attentive, funny and knowledgeable! We have been to Banff before and we had never seen many of the sites from the tour. We also enjoyed learning more about the history of Banff.
