    Outstanding tour of the Western Canadian Rockies! Cant say enough good things about this tour. From start to finish this tour company was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and shared in the excitement of our upcoming tour. The tour itself was outstanding. A small groups tour that is perfectly designed to showcase the highlights of the Canadian Rockies. Our guide was so much fun, giving a ton of interesting commentary and local stories making sure we had plenty of time to enjoy the parks. The scenery was amazing and the hotels of a very high quality. We really enjoyed our tour and will certainly be returning for more tours in the future!

    An absolute must do!! I just finished this amazing adventure and am so grateful I had the opportunity to do it! The incredible scenery combined with the small close knit group and the outstanding guide Chris Patrick made this trip one to remember :) A tour guide can either make or break a group and Chris certainly made it! He was an excellent driver and always made sure everyone was ok :) Thank you for making my first time to Canada amazing!

    Well organised by Chris and Rachel, we were fortunate with the weather seeing this wonderful part of the world. Chris was very informative, and looked after us. Good company from my fellow travellers from America, Finland and UK, I was more than happy. This was my second with this company, so I knew what to expect. Considering what you could spend on seeing this part of the world, this tour was value for money.

    I recommend this tour!

    This trip is excellent if you like nature and walking. Well organized small group tour works fine and its easy to move from place to place. We had a new minibus and trailer for luggage and for other equipment. We had picnic style lunches and dinners at campsites. Flexibility and teamwork needed with travel mates and the campsite facilities. Canada is beautiful and tour guides made this trip GREAT!
