I don't know what the law is in Canada on misleading advertising but describing this tour as a 'Wildlife Safari' should be an indictable offence. We got in the bus with high hopes of seeing wildlife. A reasonable expectation I would have thought. After a...More

Knowledgeable driver/guide but unfortunately little wildlife! Saw a couple of elk and a few deer. We saw more during the tour of Banff the previous day. Not sure about the black bear pelt the driver produced!

Great tour of the lakes and ice fields. Long day but you really see a lot. We even saw 8 bears including 2 grizzlies. Neil E did a great job on this tour even working an hour extra to accommodate an unexpected turn of events.

Small group tour to see wildlife in the Banff area. Much better than the large bus tours. Our driver, Remco (sorry about spelling if wrong) was great and informative. Managed to see some deer, some Wapiti (Elk),and some interesting ground squirrels.
