This was a highlight of our stay in Banff. A great raft guide and unreal scenery makes this a superb tour. Lasts about an hour and is a slow, gentle ride, very relaxing.

We decided to do this on the spur of the moment and really enjoyed it. The guide was very informative and friendly. It was very gentle so suitable for all and they had rain ponchos available as it started to rain on our tour.

Booked the 2.5 hour "Bow River Safari" tour direct via the company website. I think this one is a much better one than the 1 hour tour. We were staying at the Fairmont Banff Springs and it was a convenient and easy walk down behind...More
