Wasn't memorable. Wasted a lot of time driving to several hotel pickups. Overpriced for a view of 2 lakes. Not a real "tour". Just take a shuttle.

Pro: The Guide/ Bus operator was amazing. he has deep knowledge in history and explain it well. Con; It is very expensive. The company I booked did not inform there are different trips in one day and has different pick up spots. If we knew it before our trip would have been way more enjoyable.

Great trip, but tour guides mic wasn’t working on bus on the way to Lake Louise. Had an hour and 15 mins at Lake Louise and only 30 mins at Lake Moraine. My husband and I would have rather the other way around as we felt Lake Moraine was by far the more beautiful of the two. In fact it’s the most beautiful place we have ever seen.

People were late getting to the bus for whatever reason. But we were told it would not take away our time but we ended up 35 min at Moraine. Lake which was not enough time it takes takes 45 min to lake Louisa And then 20 min to Lake Moraine where we only got 35 min. The driver did a good job with info most of drive up

Chris was an outstanding tour guide. He gave us a lot of information about the park and lakes, bears in the area, what was going on in Banff, other worthwhile places to visit, and basically anything that could be interesting to the group. He did it in such a funny way that it kept us entertained throughout the whole drive. Lake Moraine is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. This trip was a very quick way to see some gorgeous sites. Highly recommended:)

Eli was a great tour guide and gave us a lot of information about the local wildlife and history of Banff. The lakes are breakthtakingly beautiful, if you want to spend more than 40 minutes at the lake or canoe on the lakes, this isnt the tour for that. We found it to be enough time to marvel and take some great pictures.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! The lakes were amazing, proof of God’s amazing love for us shining through his exquisite creation! The commentary provided by our driver/guide, Tyler Buck, was informative and enjoyable. He did an excellent job relating stories that brought the scenery to life. Buck’s wildlife tales were equally informative and entertaining. Hats off to Discover Canada!

Great tour! The lakes are both beautiful and our tour guide, Annika, was super knowledgeable and nice. The tour was 4ish hours with a 30 minute stop at Lake Louise and a 40 minute stop at Moraine Lake. Hike up the rocks at Moraine Lake first to get a great view (but be aware it is a steep hike up natural rock stairs). Would highly recommend!
