We did the interactive tour and loved learning all about the wolf dogs, our tour guide was excellent and answered all our questions, as well as provide us with tonnes of additional information. Really enjoyed getting to feed the wolf dogs and interact with them.

Make sure you get your details we went and booked the horse sleigh and than they said there is not timing your here. You would have to wait an hour. We wasted time there. Than we weren't sure we would have a group of people in the ride with us. In the picture they presented it to us as a... More

Our hotel concierge recommended we do the Johnston Canyon Icewalk with Discover Banff Tours and we're so happy we did. Sure, you could walk the trail without a tour guide and for free, but you'd miss out on all of this: It was nice to get picked up from our hotel. It's even nicer that our tour guide Jeff asked...

We did the package that included dog sledding, a gondola ride, and the upper hot springs. It was a lot of fun and was well worth the $210/person that we spent!

We did the night walk in Johnstone canyon. Would recommend to anyone. It wasn't too far after skiing all day and our guide, Ed, was great. The hot chocolate and maple creams at the falls were nice too! It was nice to be out of town and away from the lights, we turned the head torches off for a bit... More

I've participated in 4 tours with Discover Banff Tours. Below are my thoughts on each: Discover Banff & Its Wildlife: This tour is good if you are unfamiliar with the area, don't have a vehicle, and are interested in learning more about Banff's history and wildlife. You aren't guaranteed to see wildlife (and I don't believe I saw anything on... More

Our tour guides name was Joanne and she was fantastic! I was in a party of 11 people and every person loved it! The tour itself was a 'Discover Banff and Its Wildlife Tour.' Now because it's Winter unfortunately there were obviously no bears as they were in hibernation, however we saw a large group of elk, squirrels, deer and... More

The show shoe trip far exceeded our expectations. We were driven to Kootenay park and guided by Norm. He was funny, attentive and well-organized. We made friends on the tour and were stunned by the beauty of our hike. I would definitely recommend the snow shoe trip to anyone visiting Banff!
