Cruise through Banff in style with new Open Top Touring experience

Sep 10 2020, 10:18 am

A brand new experience has just been launched in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains.

Those who are hoping to take a trip out to Banff in the tail end of summer or for a fall getaway can also take a trip into the 1930s, as vintage-inspired tour Open Top Touring is putting a collection of custom coaches onto the Rocky Mountain roads.

The open roof vehicles take participants on a tour of some of Banff’s best locations, and even bring a period-costumed tour guide along for the ride.

The tours hit the Bow River, Surprise Corner, Tunnel Mountain Drive, and the picturesque Mount Norquay Lookout, so you’d better believe that a memory card full of photo ops will be a big part of the trip.

The tours cost $45 for adults and $25 for children aged 6 to 15, are 90 minutes in length, depart between 9 am and 7 pm (depending on the day of the week), and start at Mount Royal Hotel.

The experience is only available until October 12 (any later and riding around in an open-top vehicle is just asking for frostbite), and reservations can be made online here.
