Do this early on your trip!!

Rob was so great! Knowledgeable about wildlife, park history, phenomena of the park, etc. Catered our tour for the weather to ensure we were seeing the best of what was available for the weather. Small tour size made it efficient and moving quickly. Gave great suggestions for the remainder of our stay. This is a great tour to do on your first or second day to see the highlights and best overlooks of Banff and Yoho, and figure out where you’d like to go back to and explore further. Highly recommend!

A Wonderful Day exploring!

We had a wonderful day exploring Banff on this tour. Seasonal conditions altered our itinerary a bit but we still got to see amazing sites. We got to see Bow Falls, The Hoodoos, Lake Minnewanka, Surprise corner, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake, Kicking Horse river, the Natural Bridge etc. The best part was our expert guide Rob Sr. whose friendly, patient demeanor and lighthearted humor made our day pleasant. He knew interesting details about each location we visited as well as the areas along the way. We highly recommend Beyond Banff tours!!!!

Rob gave us a superb tour. His expert knowledge was invaluable and we were lucky enough to see a grizzly and a black bear as well as deer and big horn sheep. The scenery was beyond spectacular and he took us to some well chosen viewing points, which were great for capturing some great photos.

Guide was experienced and took great care of the elderly parents on board with us. Would recommend for travellers coming on this tour to come with good hiking boots, cleats and trekking poles as the paths can be very snowy and slippery.

Definitely the highlight of our trip to Banff! Robbie was incredibly funny, charismatic, and knowledgeable of the area. He offered to take our picture at every stop and made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy all the beautiful views. He made excellent recommendations for lunch and showed us the most breathtaking view of Banff at the end of the trip. We can’t wait to book a summer tour with this company!

This was an excellent trip! Robbie was an amazing guide with lots of local knowledge, personable and made everyone feel comfortable. We stopped at a lot of places but it didn’t feel like you were always on the bus. The many stops broke up the day nicely. I would highly recommend this company and tour!

Our Local Guide gave us an excellent overview of the beauty of the Banff/Lake Louise area in the 8 hr day trip. The views were all spectacular. The time spent in each location was perfect. A great value.
