We had an extraordinary tour today with our guide, Caroline. The sights were spectacular! The trip was very well planned and she adjusted to my husband’s slower walk. She provided interesting, historical, informative, and entertaining facts as we traveled to each site. The tour was well paced and she was very helpful, genuine and accommodating all day. We will definitely use this tour company again as they are reputable, reliable and care about their clients. Caroline was very educated, kind, and it was a great time. I highly recommend her and Banff Tours.

Fantastic! I wasn’t expecting a private tour. Caroline’s explanation and drive were so nice. The whole trip was excellent, very satisfying including the beautiful scenery. Caroline was knowledgeable, very friendly and patient. Luckily, a very sunny day and Caroline took a lots of spectacular pictures of me. I’m so glad that I had a chance to spend some time with her and I had an incredible experience.

We had a very nice day. We weren't expecting a personal tour. It allowed us to avoid places we had already been. Alex was very knowledgeable. It is a long day but you go to many places .

Banff was great, gorgeous views. The guide was very nice and charismatic, he would always flavor sites with information and give us details about the area. 10/10 guide!
