The show shoe trip far exceeded our expectations. We were driven to Kootenay park and guided by Norm. He was funny, attentive and well-organized. We made friends on the tour and were stunned by the beauty of our hike. I would definitely recommend the snow shoe trip to anyone visiting Banff!

We had two tours booked back to back (the Johnston Canyon Ice Walk and Marble Canyon Snowshoeing) and both were outstanding from start to finish. We were picked up from the hotel by our guides, all of whom were friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. Jeff and Becky on the Ice Walk were brilliant, answering any and all questions thrown at them...

Had a great time. The scenery was breathtaking and the people at White N' Wild were wonderful. Our bus driver and snowmobile guide, Curtis, was exceptional. The BBQ was also very delicious and the British Columbia Rocky Mtns offered a beautiful setting in which to enjoy our lunch.

This was a great, quick (3 hour) and very reasonably priced ($60) way to see the highlights of Banff natural attractions. Our guide Pamela was SO knowledgable, she really made the tour...from animal physiology, to geology to history we received a breadth of informative knowledge of the area. Would recommend this tour!

Hello Leah Thank you for taking the time to give a review. We've been operating the Discover Banff & its Wildlife tour since our company began in 1999. Did you know that we started with 3 simple things in the beginning? A cell phone for reservations and to call in credit cards to process. It went everywhere with the owner,... More

Fantastic tour, great views and very knowledgeable tour guide. Neil was outstanding, he was very helpful, right on time with schedule and our phones died due to the cold so he took pictures for us on his own phone and made sure we got them by email.

The perfect Christnas gift from my wife, January snow shoeing along the beautiful Marble Canyon. Lots of fun in the snow when you go off the trail. Post snowshoeing treat was a true Canadian winter refreshment. The combination of hot chocolate and maple syrup prepared by our guide Neal! Well done it was delicious.

The morning walk in the canyon was amazing! Jordan was an awesome guide who was very friendly and open to all kinds of questions. He knew a lot of fun facts about the canyon from how it was made, to information about the ice formations. Halfway back we stopped for hot chocolate and maple cookies. Couldn't have asked for a...

Hello Andy I'll be sure to pass on your comments to Jordan about your Johnston Canyon Icewalk with us. He'll be really pleased to hear you had such a great time, and so am I! Next time you are around you may want to try our Grotto Canyon Icewalk for a totally different experience. See you then. More

Took advantage of a Groupon for Johnston canyon tour including boots, poles and things for your boots so you don't slip. Fantastic 5km walk through the canyon. Tour guide Neil was very informative and helpful. A few of us had our phones shut off right at the large hill. Neil offered to use his phone so we could get some... More

I done a few of the tours with Discover Banff Tours to Johnston canyon, Moraine lake, and to the Athabasca glacier whilst I was in Banff and found the staff to be very friendly and knowledgable. Enjoyed all experiences. Its a great way to see the area.
