What people are saying about Banff

Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 4 reviews

The gondola ride was great but once you get to the top there are lots to do. The roof top view, the restaurants, theatre, and of course the views! Don’t let the look of the the walk discourage you, there are lots of spots to rest along the way and enjoy yet another amazing view !

All went very smoothly. Beautiful views. If you are going to do the walk to the lookout, do it first so you don’t run out of time, like we did. I would say that this is a MUST DO if you are in Banff.

We can't give a full review here as we poorly timed this event and one following the gondola ride. There's so much to see and do so please leave yourself AT LEAST 3 hours to take it all in.

Employees were extremely helpful. Shops were very nice. Views were spectacular.

Efficient staff. Loading and unloading very easy. Gorgeous views.
