Tweaked tour

App Description

As a guest at one of our hotel's, Banff Lodging Company invites you to enjoy our FREE guided driving tour from Calgary to Banff.

You can start the tour from either Calgary Airport or from Calgary downtown or join anywhere along the route to Banff. The tour will also provide directions right to your hotel driveway.

As you drive, commentary will play AUTOMATICALLY. The drive takes approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and along the way the tour will point out things for you to notice and tell stories about the areas you are passing through.

There is also loads of tips and advice about what to do while you are visiting Banff National Park. The content has been prepared by professional tour guides.

** Once downloaded, is tour requires no data exchange to operate and activate the commentary points, so you will not have any data or roaming costs. Just download the app using Wi-Fi at your home network or at the airport, your hotel or any other location. When touring, the app uses your device's GPS which is free.

This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining, just like listening to a radio that knows exactly where you are.

** Important: If you are downloading the tour to an iPad it must be a 3G model or higher. If the iPad is wireless only - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function. Any iPhone 3G, 4 or 5 will activate just fine.

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We recommend taking a car charger.
