Loved this day, the Hop On team were awesome, so knowledgeable about the area, it really added to how beautiful everything is already to understand more about it! Getting around Banff can be a little stressful in peak times, but it was good to just leave the car at home and let someone else take care of getting us to the most beautiful spots. Thank you for a great day!!

The bus let you avoid the busy traffic and you don’t have to worry about parking. It wasn’t a hop on and hop off bus as some people may expect. It is more of a designated pickup at specific times. A person has time to see and do things at each stop. They advise that you are always guaranteed a seat, because you schedule your trip and how long you’re going to be at each spot. The glacier fed lakes are beautiful colors, so blue /teal or green, with mountains surrounding them. Just a wonderful time.
