Cruise Banff, Prohibition Style.

Venture back to the prohibition era with Open Top Touring's Moonshine & Microbrews Tour. Your exclusive adventure begins with a scenic drive to Lake Minnewanka aboard one of our open-air, vintage-inspired automobiles. En route, you'll learn about life in Banff during prohibition through the early 1930s and the colourful characters who helped shape the town.

Then it's time to sit back, relax and enjoy the view on our Beer Voyage Cruise — a refreshing tasting tour featuring local craft beer and hallmark Canadian Rockies scenery. Post-cruise, your Open Top guide will be waiting, ready to tour you through the historic mining town Bankhead and explore one of the area's top wildlife corridors. Back in town, you'll take a final cruise along Banff Avenue to the Elk + Avenue Hotel to cap off the night with a prohibition-style cocktail from Farm & Fire.
