This place blew me away, definitely something u must do !!

Location - excellent
Snow/ track - excellent
Guides - excellent (especially Johnny : he is exactly what u want a guide to be - awesome, adventurous & knowledgeable - brilliant !!)
Lunch in cabin - excellent
Free time provided to get Ur James Bond on - excellent

The views were spectacular, everywhere you looked !!

All I would do differently next time is have one of those camera things on your helmet as I would have loved to have one to record our awesome day.

A must do activity for everyone!!

To top it all off we had a brilliant bus driver Caroline who was an excellent source of information for our 2 hr drive & excellent at spotting wildlife -
We were privileged to see not one, but a pack of timber wolves, they were absolutely spectacular.
I've attached some photos, please zoom in for a closer look.

My family went on the all do Snow Mobile tour yesterday and had an awesome time. All we can say is WOW. We had done the Yellowstone snow mobile tour and were not expecting much more. Toby Creek Tour blew the Yellowstone tour away. Highly recommend. You will miss the time of your life if you don't try this. You must do the whole day tour which takes you up to the mountain top cabin for lunch then free time in the Bowl. A++++++++++

I went on the Paradise Basin Full Day Snowmobile tour during the week. I was collected from and returned to Banff. It was absolutely amazing. We did a bit of training and then took off on our adventure. I had never snowmobiled before so was a little bit nervous to begin with but after a little while was more confident. The snowmobiles are easy to control. We ate lunch which was lovely and messed around with the snowmobiles in a play area which was great fun. The whole area is stunning and the views are amazing.
I would recommend doing a tour with Toby Creek Adventures. The guides are lovely and it is a great day out! Can't wait to go again!

We took our 2 boys (6 & 11) on the Paradise Ridge full day trip. The trip was exactly as described. We visited the mine site, had lunch at the cabin at Paradise Mine and climbed to the top of the mountain (low gear in 4x4) to 9000'. Absolutely stunning views. No room for any careless behaviour on this trip! Our boys LOVED the time in the mud pits. Plan on getting very dusty, and a bit muddy if you play in the pits. Suggest bringing your own rubber boots or shoes you don't mind getting dirty. The views were amazing. A deer jumped down the mountain across our path. No bear sightings but our guide Mike was amazing. We asked lots of questions and he was able to answer them all and more. Very knowledgeable. The other guide - Darren - was in this season's Amazing Race Canada. Absolutely worth the money and drive from Banff.

ATVing is something you shouldn't miss if you are in the Panorama. These guys are just a minute away from the Panorama village. We had picked a raft and ride package and had our money's worth.

The ATVs were in good condition and were well maintained. The ones that we got didn't have power steering, so were a little hard to steer. Other than that, the ride to the top of the hill was thrilling with good twists and turns. There were beautiful streams on the way. We were treated with hot chocolate and cookies at the cabin on top of the hill.

We were allowed to practice driving the ATVs before we took them uphill

They offer insurance up to a small amount on the ATV, which is good in covering off small damages. Riding gear is provided too.

With the raft and ride package we were offered lunch, which was pretty decent.

The rafting was set up with another company. The timing was not managed well, as we lost around 2 hours in the afternoon waiting for our pickup. These guys lost a star mainly for this reason

Apart from this chink, I think the whole thing was pure fun
