I’m gathering some info. for my parents who are in their 70s, pretty active, and from the Chicago area. They are thinking of vising Banff next year probably in August or September. They would fly in and out of Calgary airport from Chicago. My dad would prefer not to rent a car and my mom would prefer not to do a big tour group. So, I’m trying to get a sense for how easy it would be for them to see the sights via public transportation and possibly a couple of day tours.
I have done some brief preliminary research on-line and have a guidebook on the way, but I’d love to get some thoughts on how doable a trip to this area would be without a car. I don’t want to spend too much time researching if it’s going to be too difficult for them without a car. Also, any suggestions on guidebooks and websites to check out would be appreciated.
