This Banff sightseeing tour is a great introduction to the park. Uncover the secrets of a historic mountain haven with a local guide leading the way as you gaze upon the stunning views and visit Banff's key landmarks,

Venture down peaceful pine-scented trails and learn about wildlife habitat and behaviour from your guide. Often, you are able to view wildlife on the tour, however, as the animals are wild these sightings cannot be guaranteed. Most commonly seen are mule deer, white tail deer, elk, and big horn sheep.
