If you’re fortunate to have Heidi as your tour guide, then you will have the BEST time. All the laughs (she’s hilarious), so much new and interesting info, and of course the views were amazing. If you’re coming to Banff you have to take this tour, you won’t regret it (unless you don’t have Heidi)!

This was an awesome tour! Andrew was very knowledgeable and treated us to the history and interesting facts of the area as we were driving. Lake Louise and Lake Moraine were breathtakingly beautiful. Highlight was the rock climb at Lake Moraine, stunning views. Highly recommend this tour!

First time in Banff, Heidi was our tour bus driver & guide. She was full of knowledge and has an excellent personality.
