Called in several times for information or with questions and they were fantastic. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and they even emailed me information to help me out. Still funny to me that everyone in Banff seems to be Australian though....

Came here to get park permit, fairly straightforward process (around 20$/day). Service was good and efficient. Otherwise its also an old museum which is free and has some exhibits.

Called in here to get information on the area and to see where I could book excursions, the staff were very helpful and gave me all the relevant maps/leaflets etc. You could also us the computers in there to book tours. Dedicated area/staff to speak to about local walks and trails although I didn't use this.

We were camping at Two Jack Lake Main (no electricity). Our first visit to the Banff Visitor Information Centre was to pick up maps and leaflets, and also to ask staff a few questions. Successful. We also used the wi-fi. During our next four days, we stopped in every day to use the wi-fi. Always successful.
