          Fantastic private tour of the Rockies
          What a wonderful day we had with Robbie exploring both Banff & Yoho National Parks on a private tour, visiting Two Jack Lake, Lake Minnewanka, Moraine Lake, Emerald Lake, the Natural Bridge & Takakkaw Falls. Robbie is a personable young man with a good sense of humour & is extremely knowledgeable about the area. Although we had a full itinerary, we never felt rushed & Robbie ensured we didn’t miss anything. We highly recommend Beyond Banff Tours to see the best of the Rockies. Thanks again Robbie!

          Amazing Experience
          We had Robbie as our tour guide for two days and he was amazing. He made sure we saw everything possible within the short amount of time we had with him. We would highly recommend everyone book with Beyond Banff at a minimum and go for the private tours if possible!

          Awesome trip
          This was a wonderful tour despite hazy clouds and actual rain/ snow on the Icefields/glacier. Skyla was our tour guide and she was the best. She was friendly, knowledgeable of the area and sites and just plain fun. We met her on another tour a few days later (she was shadowing the guide) and she was just as friendly and knowledgeable and so giving of herself. The area was beautiful despite bad weather, definitely an unforgettable experience. Our bus driver was Matthias. He was also great! Fun, knowledgeable of all the areas and did a great job driving!

          I organized a conference in Banff for colleagues from across the country. That included several shuttle runs from and to the airport as well as 3 hour private evening tours for some delegates. Robbie was so easy to work with for the planning. Offered reasonable rates for everything. He was extremely knowledgeable on the tour and has an infectious sense of humor. It has been a great pleasure Robbie! More than five stars from this customer.

          Best Tour Guide!
          Robbie was our private tour guide for a day and took us all over the Lake Louise area. He knows the area really well and was just all around a great tour guide. If I ever go back to Canada, he will be my first call! Thanks Robbie for a great experience.

          Columbia Ice Fields & Lake Louise
          Our tour through Sun Dog Tours was great ! We walked on glaciers, spotted a black bear & a fox. Steve was our tour guide & he was a good guide. When we went onto the Icefields, Shayne was our driver & he was fun & knowledgeable. I know he is the best driver because he told us so. He was very solitous of those of us who had a hard time walking on the ice.

          Memorable trip to Banff
          Robbie was such a great guide. He really took good care of my family on our first trip to Banff. I’ve already recommended him to all of my family and friends. Please book him for a private tour!

          Loving the Rockies
          My family did the Best of Banff and Yoho tour with Beyond Banff tours and I must say it was one of the most enjoyable days we have had. From the moment we were picked up to the time we were dropped off our tour operator Robbie couldn’t do enough for us. He was very professional and knowledgeable while at the same time making the whole day fun and making us feel like family. We saw some of the most beautiful lakes and a fantastic waterfall in the area.If you are ever travelling to the Banff area I fully recommend that you take in a tour with Beyond Banff tours you won’t regret it.

          We had Robert as our guide. He was excellent at providing information and keeping us informed about the items such as the landscape, weather, points of interest, etc. He was also a very experienced and safe driver in the hazardous weather conditions we faced. I would highly recommend this tour.

          Fun day around Banff and more...
          Robbie Sr was an excellent tour guide and driver - we all enjoyed the day so much (even tho it rained the entire day). It was interesting and beautiful and it was so nice not to have to drive and find these places. I would definitely trust him for a very pleasant day!!

          Yoho National Park and Lake Louise and Banff motor coach tour
          My sister and I recently traveled to Canada for a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer with Orbridge. Our coach driver in Banff was Nick, who was a very knowledgeable and congenial young man. We all enjoyed his humor and great information. He even found us a “bear jam” in Banff National Park!

          Lake Louise and Icefield Parkway
          As a keen travel photographer I was looking at doing things a little different from my usual coach tours. I booked a private tour of Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway with Beyond Banff. The tour guide , Rob jnr was such a dedicated guide, he hiked with me off the trail and down through the woods to a spot for the best pictures of Peyto Lake ... With a BROKEN LEG ... On Crutches !!! Honestly you had to see it to believe it . Arriving at Moraine lake arrangements had be made for me to join Rob Snr and his group to the top of the rock pile for my photographs of the lake from above. Rob snr offered to take pictures of anyone with a camera, which was a real treat to be in some of my travel pictures. To say it was An Absolutely amazing day doesn’t come close ! Thanks so much to Rob jnr , Rob snr and Rob the driver . You all did an amazing job Hopefully I’ll see you again for another adventure !

        Traveled with my golf league girlfriends and we had an incredible day with Robbie! He picked us up at our VRBO and planned a beautiful day with stops in Banff and others on the way to Lake Louise. Emerald Lake was so spectacular. Robbie gave us a lot of extra education and answered all of our questions with knowledge and humor! Robbie was accommodating to extra needs among the group.

        Robbie owns this business and started it himself. He knows so much about everything and makes sure everyone is comfortable and having a great time.

        We saw some INCREDIBLE sights, tons of snow, glaciers, walked on frozen lakes, and much more.

        This is a great all-day excursion that will take you to some must-see spots.

        Well worth booking this tour. Rob was an entertaining and excellent guide and driver. H was well informed, amusing and able to flex the days itinerary to maximise the experience regardless of weather. He even arranged some sunshine over Lake Louise. We visited several Lakes and waterfalls/cascades and he ensured we all saw some turquoise blue water.

        Excellent tour! We visited so many beautiful lakes, rivers & waterfalls that I lost count. The scenery was amazing as was all the detailed info that our guide & driver, Rob shared with us! We would never have seen all those spectacular places on our own. Rob was polite, punctual, knowledgable and a safe driver. The bonus was that we were picked up & returned to our lodge. No muss, no fuss! When one stop on our tour was deemed unsafe due to ice & snow, Rob had another perfect site lined up. Plus he added an extra special viewpoint at the end of our tour! Thanks for a great day, Beyond Banff tour s!!

        This was a fantastic tour! We saw so much of the area including Norquay, Lake Minnewaka, Two-Jake Lake, Lake Louise, Hoodoos, Cascade Ponds, Emerald Lake and Natural Bridge. Never felt rushed and even had time for a great lunch including elk stew at Lake Louise sitting a picnic table enjoying the May sun. This tour operator is a family based business where both father and son give exceptional service. We had Robbie (the son) who did a great job answering questions and talking to his guests. This is the best tour we took whilst in Banff.

        Robbie our guide went above and beyond on this tour. He was very knowledgable of the area and its history. The communication about how to dress for this tour as the weather changed so quickly was helpful. This was a full day of adventure. Very chill.
        I would highly recommend it.

        We had a fantastic day with Rob touring the spectacular Banff National Park. He was knowledgeable and engaging, but also knew when to just let us enjoy the spectacular views and soak up the scenery. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the best of the Banff area. Thanks Rob!
