Hi Simon

Sorry it’s taken us so long to get round to sending you a testimonial, but here it is below.

We had wanted to visit the Canadian Rockies for many years and our holiday there did not disappoint. There were so many highlights: breathtaking views from the top of the Banff Gondola; thrilling white water rafting on Bow River; an amazingly scenic coach journey across the Icefields Parkway to Jasper; in Jasper, a fascinating safari trip to the beautiful Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake; the spectacular journey on the Rocky Mountaineer (we were very happy with the Redleaf service); looking over Vancouver from inside the wind turbine at the top of Grouse Mountain; the glorious displays of flowers in the Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island; an abundance of wildlife, including bald eagles, bears (actually, only two of these), bighorn sheep, elk and wolves – we even saw caribou just wandering down the street in Banff! What a wonderful variety of experiences. Looking at our itinerary, a Canadian friend said we had planned the trip very well, not knowing we had actually planned nothing ourselves! Being given a complimentary upgrade in almost all the hotels we stayed in was the icing on the cake. Thank you, Simon.
