About
Without a guided tour, you’re likely to miss the stunning views that set Banff National Park apart as one of Canada’s most-visited outdoor attractions. This tour lets you relax and listen to commentary about the region while someone else handles the mountainous roads and crowded parking lots en route to top Banff sights, including Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, and the Bow Valley Parkway.

Andrew was a fantastic tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about the history of the lakes and you could tell he was eager to teach. My mother in law is oxygen dependent and he was able to allow for her portable concentrator to be plugged in. I loved the small group as well.

Great tour
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great tour guide, Matthew Rodgers. He handled a situation with an irate bicyclist very calmly. He scheduled our stops to take best advantage of the sun’s position. Beautiful Bow Falls! Great stories and humor along with a genuine concern for people. How appropriate that he is Mr. Rodgers.

Our guide Anike was excellent. Very engaging, knowledgeable and helpful. She gave just the right amount of commentary . We got into both car parks because we were in a tour bus while private cars were being turned away. The lakes were incredible.

BNP Tour with Lake Louise and Moraine Lake - Jeff
Aug 2021 • Couples
We did multiple tours with Discover Banff Tours over the last few days and specifically with Jeff. Without a doubt, Jeff and the DPT made our trip and experience so much more memorable. Jeff’s knowledge and personal experiences added to the amazing sights with history and context. Not to mention, he can take some great photos!

We recommend 100%.

I strongly recommend taking a tour with Jeff, he also took amazing pictures of us while hiking.

Jeff and Heidi Show!!!!
Jul 2021 • Family
This review is for Jeff and Heidi,

David here, this was my first time to Banff. My family and I really enjoyed the tour and we definitely enjoyed the warm and bubbly personalities of Jeff and Heidi. Both were very professional and very passionate about the tour and that same positive energy was rubbing on all of us on that tour.

Highly recommend these two Jeff and Heidi, if you are after a nice chilled relaxed tour. They are both excellent photographers by trade, well at least from what I’ve seen lol.

Thanks again
All the best guys!

Great guide, not enough time
Jul 2021
We took the lake Louise and Moraine tour on July 20th. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The bus was clean and the stress of finding parking was gone!
It was a super hot day and the AC on the bus was not working properly so that made the journey very uncomfortable. The sound system on the bus was also very quiet so despite the guides best efforts it was very hard to hear her commentary at the back of the bus.
30 minutes was allocated for each lake and for us that was just not enough for lake Louise. An all day tour to lake Louise would be a wonderful addition to the tours this company offers.

Great tour spots, off to a rocky start
Jul 2021
We had booked the Lake Louise and Moraine Lake tour as we saw that parking was an issue. Both spots were amazing and some good pit stops along the way, Pickup was 30min late, to the point where I had to call a couple of times because I thought we were in the wrong spot/they forgot about us. Then the A/C in the bus was not working and it was sweltering in there. Difficult to hear the guide in the bus as the speakers weren’t loud enough too. A good afternoon still and great views. Happy we booked it regardless. I suspect this was growing pains just getting back into the tour routine.

Worth every penny!
Wow! What can I say? I took my daughter to Banff for her 25th birthday. We only had 2 days and I wanted to get in as much as we could. I booked the afternoon tour. We learned all sorts of interesting tidbits along the way. We also stopped at 4 locations including Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. Just absolutely breathtaking! The tour went a little late being about 5 hours. The bus that normally holds 24 passengers, had only 8 of us. Easy to socially distance. Our guide Andrew was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and made the tour worth every penny! I highly recommend this attraction!
