I had a wonderful trip to Canada, made all the more special by the attention to detail from our travel expert, Simon Gemmell. We had wished to travel from Toronto to Montreal by train then onward to Quebec the same way, could we do this and were there any good hotels he would recommend? Not only did Simon find us the perfect rail times and book first class seats but he booked us into two marvellous hotels; the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal and Chateau Frontenac in Quebec, pulling strings to get us a complimentary upgrade. The whole experience was perfect and travel arrangements ran as smoothly as silk. The maples and other colourful trees did not disappoint as we sat back and watched the views and later, staying in Chateau Frontenac high above the St Lawrence (with views to gloat about) was the icing on the cake. Had it not been for Simon’s excellent attention, sending us maps, taking time to arrange our return flight to Toronto that allowed plenty of time to catch our last leg home, the entire holiday would have been far less special than it was. Having nothing at all to stress about made for a very enjoyable experience and I am determined to return to Quebec again one day to explore further the delights of this beautiful city.

And Simon will be the first person we will talk to about how we achieve the best way to do just that!

Best wishes,

Sandra M
