Very well coordinated! Told the driver what we wanted to see and he planned the days itinerary. Ample time at most stops and much more convenient than driving and parking.

Lake Moraine and Lake Louise were incredible and you get a decent length of time at both. The bus guide provides great advice on your itinerary to ensure you see everything you want to efficiently. I would highly recommend this tour!

The tour guides provided details on individual schedules based on what our interests were. The were informative as well. Our most memorable site was Moraine Lake. I would recommend starting on the earliest bus so you can make the most of the day.

Best of Banff!

Dominique and Tyler are warm and gracious hosts for your trip to Banff-- much more than tour guides-- they take time with each passenger to understand their itinerary and make helpful suggestions; where to go, what to see etc. Dominique provided great local insights that shaped not only my Hop On Tour, but my trip plan for the next 3 days in the park. Terrific travel professionals. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and recommendation to other travellers. Dominique is super happy to hear that her recommendations for the rest of your trip went well also.

Local, friendly and informed guides. Shuttles run on time- don't be late. All the chosen stops were beautiful, even in the rain! Don't miss Johnson Gorge's beautiful blue water.

Despite having the trip disrupted by road works the guides sorted it so everyone saw what they wanted with the minimum delay. Very friendly and informative.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
The road works definitely caused us some consternation getting around Banff. It is really great to hear that our efforts to minimize the impact on you, our guest, was noticed is a fantastic reward! Thank you for recognizing the efforts of our guides and drivers. And thank you for your recommendation to other travellers!

If you want to see the top attractions at the busy time of the year this is the thing to do; the bus gets you right to the front, you can adjust your schedule to fit what you want to see the most and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful we will definitely do this again.

Bus was cramped and dated. Was told could not do one of stop off. On return trip was told we could have made the stop off. Didn't get to stop off at Lake Louise chateau, only at the gondola. Very disappointing.

My husband and I were in banff for our anniversary and booking the tour was one highlight of our trip. Stops at all the places we wanted to go to without all the hassle of trying to battle the crowds. Dom and Tyler were great. Dom was very informative and you learn a lot of interesting facts and Tyler’s stories of past tourists are really funny. We also saw two bears. At the end of the trip Dom asks everyone what else they have planned and I asked her for tips to go back to Moraine to canoe and she graciously allowed us to get back on the bus two days later so we don’t have to battle the crowds or have any trouble. It was soo nice of her to allow us to do that. We have already recommended this tour to three other groups of friends visiting Banff this year bc it was truly a great experience of kind people and hospitality.

Next best thing since sliced bread!

We scheduled the bus twice during our stay in Banff this past July. Dominique and Nick were super hosts, helped us plan our daily schedules, and gave us helpful tips to make the most out of our vacation. Seeing the closed parking lots, long lines in the overflow lots, and cars parked miles up the roads made us so glad we didn't drive ourselves. The bus drove us right up to our entrances and we started off our days stress free. Compliments to our hosts who made us feel so welcomed. We enjoyed visiting with them during our time on the bus. We will for sure utilize the Hop On and Hop Off bus next time in Banff and highly recommend it to others!
