The best option for exploring Banff

Highly recommend. This experience was the best way to major attractions in Banff that would be impossible to get to with/without a car during the summer. Explore at your own paise.

Perfect day
Amy_P

If you want a perfect day from Banff to the lakes this is your ticket. We were able to complete a hike around Lake Moraine & climb the rock pile, hike up to Lake Agnes tea house for lunch at Lake Louise, then hike to lower falls at Jackson canyon thanks to this service & wonderful guides & bus drivers. Do not hesitate to book this tour. Amazing & long day….get on the first bus out to assure seeing all you can.

A must in Summer

Looking at the parking limitations around Lakes Louise and Moraine , this was such a good idea. Really neat service using 4 yellow scool buses, allowing people to wizz round the sights or take a leisurely day loking at them all. Congratulations to Dominique (owner and one of the guides) for getting through Covid. This was very good, amusing annecdotes and useful information.

This was absolutely the best way to travel in the park if you want to stop at the main attractions. They are incredibly helpful in planning your day to make sure you get the most out of your time. It is informative and they have connections that get you into places easily. The guides are awesome!

Beautiful Banff
Cindy_D

My son and I did the hop on/off Banff tour. We are so glad we did. We found the ride to be comfortable and worry free. Both Dominique and Darryl were amazing guides and very informative. Dominique would ask what we hoped to see and do and then make a personal plan for us both on the tour and around Banff. Shes so kind and helpful! We seen all the beautiful lakes and scenery. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to sit back and enjoy the scenery and access all the lakes without the wait and worry of parking.

Kay_F

What a shame we only joined the tour at 12 midday. We had time only to visit Lake Louise and Lake Moraine but Dominique gave us lots of information en route and advised us of the best viewing area for Lake Moraine which was absolutely stunning. If you book this trip make sure you join early to take in more sights

The only way to visit the lakes.
Kevin_K
, Jun 2022
Dominique and Tyler are great people. Friendly, knowledgeable, very helpful. This is the only way to experience the lakes near Banff. You do not want to drive—parking and traffic are a nightmare. The regional buses are great, but I saw the queue at Lake Louise to board; there were at least 200 people waiting (so three buses full of people) and they don’t come that frequently. However, we just hopped back on our bus at the appointed time with no waiting and had a pleasant ride back to town (and saw a black bear on the way). Really can’t recommend this enough. It makes your whole day more pleasant by taking the hassle out of getting around.

Very well coordinated! Told the driver what we wanted to see and he planned the days itinerary. Ample time at most stops and much more convenient than driving and parking.
