Hop On Banff was an amazing opportunity to see Banff National Park's most popular attractions. Our day started on the earliest pick up time. Our guide Tyler was well informed on the history of Banff and filled us in on interesting details during the commute to our destinations. He even took the time to curate experiences for our tour. Some patreons on the bus wanted to ride the gondola so he highlighted their program with instruction on how to get there.

Our first major stop was at lake moraine. The tour gave its patreons enough time to hike, take photos and canoe in the lake. The canoe rentals were not included but I highly recommend that service with this tour ($130). It was an unforgettable experience.

We then stopped at Lake louise for sight seeing and light hiking. We also had time to explore the historic Fairmont hotel.

Our last stop was the gondola ride. Again, another amazing experience and unforgettable view.

I highly recommend this tour service for any visitors to banff as it gives you time and freedom to explore the locations you want to see. Staff is informed and very friendly.

Sounds like you took full advantage of everything this area has to offer while on tour with us. To be able to Canoe and sightsee at Moraine Lake, have time for a short hike at Lake Louise, ride the gondola to the top for views over where you had spent your morning AND still experience Johnston Canyon is a full-day experience unlike any other. It is definitely advantageous to start on the first bus out for sure. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review for other travellers also.

My wife and I had a fantastic day on the Hop On Hop off bus in Banff.While we had rented a car but we decided on doing the tour as we had read about the problems of parking in the favorite tourist spots. It was great travelling on the old yellow school bus and we picked it up at 7.50am at Banff Train Station, (you can park your car at the station FREE for 9 hours). We were met by Tyler with a warm welcome and he gave us a bus timetable of all the stops, once everyone was on the bus and we started our journey he went around everyone asking what we wanted to do during the day,highlighting the arrival and departure time from each stop we wanted to do and the best order to get the most out of our day.
We arrived at Johnston Canyon at 8.25am and departed 10.10 am.
Lake Louise arrived at 11.15 am departed at 1.40pm James was the guide on this bus.
Lake Moraine arrived at 2.05pm departed 3.05 pm arriving back at Banff Train Station 4.55pm. these stops gave us sufficient time at each stop,Tyler and James were great guides,Ron and the Lady driver ( sorry forgot her name ) were great. We saw some wildlife but the highlight was the Black Bear just on the side of the road on our return to Banff, where Ron stopped the bus giving everyone the opportunity to take photos.
This has to be the best way to see the lakes as the car parks are full by 5-6am, we can not praise Hop On Hop off enough, excellent day.

A very big thank you from all of us that were able to be a part of your experience here in Banff. The drivers and guides get to read all of these reviews and it really makes their hard work more rewarding. As much as we are transportation to all of these places, we are still tour and customer service focused. So the sighting of the bear and Ron making sure to stop safely for viewing is just as important to us as James' great service and humour. We will make sure that everyone gets to see your review, and thank you for writing it.

Wonderful experience! The logistics of how they pick people up and drop them off at places that are not necessarily close to one another is amazing! The yellow school buses they used were all in great shape and clean. The guides and drivers we had on our full day were Dominique & Jeff and Nick & Bobbie. All were very friendly and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and stories and answered everyone's questions. We were able to visit many of the "must see" sites in one day and did feel not rushed at any of them. We visited Johnson Canyon (a favourite with our party), Lake Louise Gondola, Lake Louise the Chateau and Moraine Lake. The guides helped each party on the bus arrange their day (and some to rearrange their day) so they could see as much (or little) as they wanted. It's a great way to see much of the beautiful Banff National Park. We highly recommend booking with them!

We had an amazing day!

Dominique and Tyler were both so friendly and knowledgable. We liked the fact they interacted with the customers rather than just talking at us. The drivers also super friendly!

The day was really well organised and explained to enable you to easily visit all the places you want to (we visited Lake Louise, Lake Moraine and Johnston Canyon, all amazing experiences).

Travelling on the school bus not only made it easy to spot in the busy car parks, but as we come from Europe where they aren’t used, it added to the experience!

We would 100% recommend this company to anyone visiting Banff!

This tour option was an absolute delight. Driver was extraordinary and as enthusiastic as the guides. All were exceptionally well informed and excited about sharing all of the beauty of the Banff/Lake Louise area. The guides spent time with each of us individually to make sure we each had the experience we wished and at the same time shared history, stories and information about all of the sites and the travel in between. They are young entrepreneurs with a wealth of experience and contagious enthusiasm. I recommend them without reservation.

Excellent owner team. Made sure that each group on the bus knew what bus schedule they should follow based on what they wanted to see inside the Park. The absolute best way to move around the park. Banff National Park is very crowded during the summer. There is virtually no parking unless you enter the park at 5am. Hop On and Off gets you to every prime park location with plenty of time to see each major park attraction. Or, you can do a hike and catch a later bus. Tyler and Dominique are very accommodating and helpful. I was so glad I booked this service and did not have to drive and wait hours in line to get parking at Lake Louise and Moraine Lake,

This is not a hop on hop off bus (unless you want it to be). It is so much more. The guides (Dominique and James) will curate your day for you, depending on what you want to do (walking around Lake Louise or hiking to the falls, etc.). They will advise what is possible and what you should focus on. Although we had a hire car, we decided on the tour because of the problems parking around the popular lakes. Our plan originally was to only go to Lake Louise (which we did), but Dominique was quite clear that we would be missing out if we did not go to Lake Moraine. We were glad we followed her advice. Like i say: So much more than a hop on hop off bus.

I think the one thing we have, and will always be proud of, is our commitment to making sure that our guests get the full value of what we offer. Many of our guests book on with us because they know that we can always get them to the one attraction they are after. But we know that we can show them so much more! So thank you for trusting Dominique and James with your day here in Banff.

Wonderful company with fantastic staff which have a great route set-out to see some of the main sights on Banff and surrounding areas. Lake Moraine and Lake Louise were of course the highlights but the views were spectacular throughout the journey.

After being let down by another company we were last minute bookers on the trip and it meant we were the only ones going out from Banff as we were on the third bus out. We got to know Dominique and our fellow “Airdrieonian” driver very well and they were very informative and a great laugh.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company to anyone!

These are some of our favourite days to be honest. Having guests on board that had no expectations and possibly had a poor experience elsewhere while helping them to have a fantastic day out is very rewarding. Thank you so much for your review and recommendation to other travellers also.

It was an action packed day. The guides were great and very helpful. They helped you plan your day according to what you wanted to see and do. They use school buses so they are easy to spot when out and about during the day. They are not the most comfortable but they get the job done. They run on time throughout the day and you were able to get to all the sites Lake Louise that you want and get to the ones that are hard to get to. Keep up the good work.

Definitely recommend the Hop -on and hop-off bus as the east to see Banff! It was great not having to worry about how to get to each site and parking... Plus the bus is always allowed through the gate point at Lake Moraine ( which is a definite must see but only a certain# of vehicles can enter). The goddess were wonderful and shared tips about the locations and places to eat 6out picnic.
