Robbie picked us up on time at our hotel in Banff. Great tour, best way to see the area regardless if you have a car or not. Didn't have to worry about parking as Robbie could just pull right into any sight. Highly recommend to anyone especially photographers.

Robbie our guide was very personable and helpful! This is the way to go to tour Banff National Park! No parking hassles as tour buses have special parking areas. Private cars may find parking lots full and only to be turned back!

Great view points! Did not feel rushed. Perhaps a packed lunch with drinks to go is a good idea. When we stopped for lunch most places had run out of food or had long lines!
