So nice having just our car group riding up with us versus some of the other larger gondolas with multiple families. Absolutely stunning view at the top. So close to the mountains <3 I highly recommend prebooking a reservation at the Sky Bistro at the top for a delicious meal with 5 star service

The Banff Gondola was very good...it wasn't the clearest of days but still very enjoyable. I didn't expect to have to line up with my voucher to have them print tickets, it would have been nicer to be able to use the barcode provided to avoid another line up to print out a ticket that was already purchased.

We really enjoyed this day! Obviously exciting going up to the top of the mountain in a gondola, but all the extra fun Christmas things they had was amazing! Santa was there, cookie decorating and ornament making. Cool Christmas cartoon and frozen maple treats. We walked the boardwalk and went all the way up to the top of Samson Peak. Breath taking views! My husband and both daughters (aged 9 & 15) really enjoyed this day. Amazing gift shop and also Starbucks service was great. Staff was very welcoming. Totally worth it!
