This full-day tour of Banff National Park is the perfect way to visit some of the Canadian Rockies’ greatest hits, from Victoria Glacier to Moraine Lake.

Start your day with pickup from select locations in Banff, and proceed on a short drive up to the park’s famous Bow Valley Parkway, a scenic route that is often frequented by local wildlife like elk, deer and more than 200 species of birds.

Back on the coach, continue to a series of mountain peaks below Victoria Glacier. Stop for a quick lunch here at the lake before visiting nearby Moraine Lake, another amazing alpine sight, as well as the Valley of the Ten Peaks.

Moving on, head over the Great Divide and into Yoho National Park, via the picturesque Kicking Horse Pass, for a stop at the Spiral Tunnels. Then finish your sightseeing at magnificent Takakkaw Falls before heading back to Banff in the late afternoon.

The tour was well organized and Colin and Luke were a very funny duo. The Brewster bus was very new and comfy. I was on one of the last tours for the season so Moraine Lake was starting to freeze, Lake Louise was a bit foggy early but then Yoho NP had no snow and we got to see Emerald Lake in all her beauty. The natural bridge in the same area was throwing wonderful colours too. I'm so glad I got to see the Lakes differently (snow vs no snow vs fog). Makes for diverse memories.

Our tour of the mountains and lakes around Banff on July 29th was all we could ever ask for. Every stop was spectacular and the commentary was delightfully informative. Our driver, John and his helper, MacKenzie served us with great attitudes and were very engaging on the entire trip.

The trip was great. The sights are all packed if you travel by car and attempt to do them yourself but there is separate parking for the organised trips so you park close to the locations and don't have to wait. You get just the right amount of time at each place and the driver/guide was really informative and a lovely guy! The only reason that this was not a 5 star review is that the lunch was terrible! And when I say terrible, I actually mean verging on inedible. I have never tasted food with so little flavour, we were starving afterwards. This was the only downside and I would definitely suggest the company look at resolving it or choosing another restaurant.

Matthew and Shane were perfect hosts for day. Matthew's humor and personal stories were outstanding - kept us laughing and engaged the entire trip. Both guides were very knowledgeable. Driving skills were outstanding. Would recommend this tour to all visitors - of all abilities. Comfortable bus. "Mr Rogers" aught to be cast in the movie. Explained things so well with a relaxed and easy manner.

Tour was wonderful. We saw so much in just one day. Tour guides David and Mackenzie were very informative. The only negative aspect of the tour is that no one ever told us we would have a 2 hour wait to catch the next bus back to town.
