Sometimes, it’s nice to have a more personalized tour experience. Tour with your own Banff Travel Guide just with your group, or create a private, custom tour that suits your interests and schedule.

"We get to set our own itinerary and form real connections with our guests. " - Anick , Senior Guide, Discover Banff Tours

Typically we offer private guided sightseeing for a half day (up to five hours) or a full day (up to 10 hours), as well as private transfer services and extended group touring options. The best way for us to develop a customised quote for you is to let us know what you are looking for!
Our rates include a professional guide and luxurious vehicle from our in-house fleet – all of our vehicles are less than five years old. We can then customise your private tour to include any extras such as Gondola tickets etc.
There is no minimum number! Our rates are typically based on the number of people (as this impacts the vehicle size), and start from one person.
Most of our guests start/finish their private tour from Calgary, Banff or Lake Louise, however we can generally travel anywhere in Alberta and British Columbia.
No problem! We can suggest some popular places to go, depending on where you are located and the amount of time you have.
Absolutely! In the winter we offer privately guided icewalk and snowshoe tours (which include the use of ice cleats and snowshoes), and in the summer we offer private hiking tours.
Group bookings of 9 or more guests, as well as custom and private bookings have a 30 day cancellation period. Some custom groups have a longer cancellation periods. You will be informed if this is the case.
Tips are not expected, but are certainly appreciated. If you think your guide did a wonderful job and would like to indicate that with a tip, it will be graciously accepted.
