Reviews

I had an excellent time on this tour. The scenery was fantastic, our tour guides, Jude and Angie, were great, the amount of knowledge they had regarding everywhere we went and also about Canada in general was really quite extraordinary! It was delivered in such a way that you never felt bored and there was the right amount so that we were informed but it was not too much. The whole tour was very well organised – keeping 50+ people on track is no mean feat! The hotels overall were good and the coach was comfortable. Our driver Tammy, was also great – some of the roads looked pretty tricky but she never missed a beat and always cheerful!! There were only a couple of slightly negative points - one was the Ranch dinner - the portions were very small and the food was lukewarm at best. It also felt rather rushed. There was only one washroom for 50+ people. I would question whether they are geared up for groups of this size. Also the hotel on the last night only had external access up steps to the first floor which can be pretty tricky when trying to pull your luggage up after you. Also as it rained heavily that night and then was cold in the morning the steps down were icy and potentially dangerous. These are only two minor points on what was otherwise a very enjoyable trip. I came away with great memories and a lot more knowledge about Canada. Thank you for an excellent experience!!!
