– The busses were frequent, they take three full rounds in a day, so there is no chance of missing it, their schedule is posted right beside the driver’s seat, I just clicked the picture so we arrive at time on the bus stop.

The host (Andrew) and our driver were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed hearing about the area and the community. A really interesting way to see Banff and surrounding area.
By far the worst service I’ve ever paid for. Wow Banff not only left a group of 15 people including kids and seniors waiting to be picked up for the… read more rest of the tour, but after several attempts of contacting the company, they where extremely rude and blamed the group of 15 people of lying and not being on time, which is totally false. At the end, we didn’t received a refund and only mistreatment. Honestly, I was just traveling with my family for one day, so it was a misfortune not only the money lost but the time. It’s OK to make mistakes, but please own it and provide a solution. Lots of room to improve, hopefully the company will recognize at some point what they did and make it right, but at this point I would not recommend this service to anyone! Very dissatisfied. Additionally, there are other options to go to both lakes (Louise and Moraine) cheaper and with wayyyyyy more respectful staff.
I spent 35 minutes in the bus instead of the lake because they decide to wait until more customers show up, to make more money. So at the lake Moraine,… read more the stop was 30 minutes. We went up at the rock pile and spent 5-7 minutes there, got back and that was all. I felt I was cheated, mind that it cost 3 times more that the regular bus.

We noticed WowBanff had departures… read more at 10:00am and after seeing their bus and hearing about how it worked, we decided to buy tickets – on top of the ones we had just bought from PC. Really happy we did. The open top double decker provided an awesome experience for seeing the mountains and wildlife. Totally worth the $25.
