What to expect
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.

Brilliant Trip
Oct 2019
Completed this trip early October. Fabulous time with spectacular scenery. Great driving by Andri to get to the spectacular waterfall. So many things to see. Luckily we saw a moose crossing the road ahead of us. Not able to capture on camera but thanks to Simon our guide he sent us a copy of this from his phone. Would highly recommend this trip especially if Andri and Simon were hosts. Thanks guys for a great day.

Beautiful day trip!!
Sep 2019
We greatly enjoyed our day trip to each of the places listed on this experience! We felt we were given ample time at each of the stops. My favorite was Moraine Lake!! So spectacular!! The parking lot was closed to cars on that day, but our bus was able to get right in and dropped us off right at the beginning of the path up to the rockpile! The view was breathtaking!! This area was truly one of the most beautiful places we have ever been!! Taking this day trip is an excellent way to see several key places. My husband's favorite stop was Takakkaw Falls. It was also amazing! Our lunch stop at Emerald Lake was equally amazing! Our short walk along the lake to our hot lunch spot was such a treat. Our lunch was delicious! We had plenty of time to take pictures after lunch and do to a little exploring. Each location along the way was outstanding. Our one request would be that we wish our tour guide would have shared more information about the area as we were riding along. However, we do recommend this trip!

My husband and I took a great bus tour to see the lakes and waterfalls around Banff.
Oct 2019
Great trip. Really good driver and commentator. Not jammed packed so we did not feel that sardines, very comfortable bus. Lots of time at each stop - so no one felt rushed. There was some walking at some of the sites (and this needs to be advertised because we had some older folks that could not always do the walking).

A Great Wayto See the High,vintage of Banff
Sep 2019
With on,y 1 full day in 5e Banff area, this tour provided us with a great opportunity to see the highlights of the Banff area. We started in Lake Louise & then headed to Moraine Lake. Both were spectacular for their own reasons.
Then we saw the spiral tunnel at work with a passing train; so cool. Lunch at Emerald Lake was enjoyable (& by then we were in Yoho National Park) & we ended our day at Takkawa Falls.our bus driver was a really knowledgeable expert.

Awesome tour lead by awesome ladies
Sep 2019
Brewster is always on time, which is great! Today our Driver was Rebecca and our guide was Jennie. The tour was all day and if you only had one day to devote, I would pick this tour. If you are really lucky, you will get these ladies. Rebecca demonstrated her exquisite driving skills when she reversed a 60 passenger bus up a switchback to get us to the spectacular Takakkaw Falls. I'm sure all drivers have to do it but she had the extra bonus of theme music to orchestrate her maneuvers! Jennie was a lovely Irish lassie who had lots of good information and yet wasn't concerned with just being quiet. I have found that lots of guides feel the need to chatter on relentlessly as though there cannot be enough time to tell you everything they know. We got tons of information and enough quiet time to let it sink in. YAY ladies! The tour itself brought us to Emerald Lake and a boat tour there. The water is spectacularly green and the boat captain got to the middle of the lake and turned off the engine so you can appreciate the quiet. Wonderful. Do take this tour.. It's well worth it. I also can recommend the Brewster Company as they are unfailingly prompt, have great tours, clean vehicles and charming guides and drivers

Brilliant trip and brilliant driver
Other than the glorious sights on this trip, Rebecca really makes it great. She’s both very knowledgeable and very witty. The lunch included is great too. All the lakes are fabulous and it’s just a great way to see such key and beautiful sights of the area.

Banff bus tour with Brad and Jack
Aug 2019
Our bus tour with Brad as Driver and Jack as Host was very good. Brad, a long time permanent driver, is very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and spiced up his delivery with good appropriate humor and excellent story telling. He is very personable and does his job well. Jack (from AU) is relatively new to Brewster and also did a very good job. Our tour of the natural sights around the Banff area was spectacular. Our Rocky Mountaineer group was fortunate as we got this team, Brad and Jack, two days in a row. Thanks for a good time.

East of West, Mike is the best
Sep 2019
Simply a fabulous trip. One of the best times to visit Banff. Very organized trip and incredibly knowledgable and friendly guides. Mike was one of the most skilled drivers I have come across globally; possibly the best in my experience. You can enjoy the Incredible beauty of the Canadian Rockies. All of which was made easy and feasible with Mike and the Viator trip.
