Canada is truly remarkable. The tour takes you on a circuit through the Canadian Rockies, where the landscape transforms daily. We encountered rugged mountains, flowing rivers and streams, majestic glaciers, expansive snow fields, and abundant wildlife at every turn. Though the travel days were not overly lengthy, there was always something to explore. Our tour guide, Joe, was exceptionally well-informed about our surroundings, the sights to behold, and the country as a whole. We enthusiastically endorse taking this tour, as it led us to countless sights and destinations that we might have missed on our own.

Stacie and Kim verified

This tour offered exceptional scenery throughout the entire duration, and we particularly appreciated the two-night stays at each resort. Our tour guide, Joe, was outstanding. He possessed extensive knowledge, was incredibly helpful and friendly, and greatly enhanced our journey. The only drawback was the absence of provided meals, which increased the overall cost. Even including breakfast each day would have been an improvement. Nevertheless, overall, you will not be disappointed with this tour.
